I have fond memories of Dan at the service station and as a neighbor when I was a child. The Aman Family was a large part of my childhood. My thoughts are with Fawnita, Kim, Ron and the Family.

At the station Dan was such a gentleman and taught his boys to be the same. He taught me to always be positive. When asked how he was, his response was ALWAYS upbeat I think of him every time someone asks how I’m doing.I try to follow his example. You’re in my prayers

Fawnita and kids, we are sad to hear the passing of Dan. He was like a dad and mentor, Dan had a major impact on me, and he will never be forgotten. He was the most positive person i have met, and always had an encouraging word. Great man, praying for the family, Larry and Mary Baker...not sure if you heard, but Jim Moneypenny passed away last summer, ............always like the poem Dan would start all the meetings off with...."I bargained with life for a penny......"..miss you Dan
