  1. Fun memories of visits in St. Louis and out West in California. Dan always made us feel so welcome. Sending sympathy and love to Gina and her family. Aunt Karen n Uncle Dennis

  2. I worked with Dan for nearly 10 years. We became friends through our likes in sports and music – how he estimated how many times he heard Dream On by Aerosmith and would add to it each time we heard it! And how we got our coworkers to do drum solo of In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins a lot like Mike Tyson did!!
    So smart. So funny. So cool. So gonna be missed!!!

  3. Dan was my best work buddy. He always made me laugh and made work almost fun. He always talked about the 2 loves of his life , Gina and his dogs. He was the very best human . I think of him often since he retired. I am so sorry Gina and Family. He will be missed

  4. My fond memories of Dan are their love of birds and taking trips hiking and biking to bird watch. Dan and Gina’s dogs are their babies! It was so nice to have he and Gina love coming to the family cabin when we are there. So many fun memories of Fort Walton Beach when he was young, and ski trips. They loved taking the nieces and nephews to the movies on holidays. That is just a beginning of fond memories. You will be greatly missed Dan

  5. Dear Gina, our thoughts, love and prayers are with you….you n Dan were lovely friends when we lived in StL and we will always remember the good times with you both and your beautiful dogs….
    May God bless you and keep you safe.

  6. Gina, Sending prayers of comfort to you. I got to know Dan again when I went back to work at Barnes. He was always challenging us to think about something OTHER than pharmacy i.e. politics, music, travel, dogs. He was well liked by all, pharmacists, students, techs, housekeeping. Hope the life, love, and memories you have will bring you comfort.

  7. Gina, I just heard about your husband passing. I’m so very sorry!
    I met him once at Pool’s party. It was great working with you too Gina.
    Take care!

  8. Worked with Dan from his 1st day at Barnes till his retirement. Was a good friend and buddy. He loved his pets, Gina, and the same music I enjoyed. Had many
    a workplace conversations with him. Godspeed Dan on your next journey.

  9. I knew Dan in high school. Just an all around good guy. Loved his understated sense of humor back then. I can only imagine how he will be missed. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
