I met Dan 30 years ago when I had just gotten hired on full-time at NASA and had started taking graduate classes onsite. Dan always had a zest for life and had a great laugh and sense of humor. Over the years we played sports at NASA together and worked together on the Synthetic Vision Systems Project. He was a great Team leader who protected his team from the minutiae and allowed them to focus and excel in their technical work. Dan was a great guy and my friend. I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and I wish them strength and peace as they deal with his passing.

My heartfelt condolences to your Family upon the passing of Dan. I have known Dan over the entire course of our NASA careers. In our youth we rode motorcycles, flew airplanes, and hung out at the beaches of Virginia and North Carolina. He was kind and conscientious and an excellent Engineer. I am very sorry...
