Mrs. Powers says:
Dan was such an amazing grandfather. He was always courteous, caring, loving, and thoughtful of others. The world was a better place for having him in it. He was such a good example to his kids and grandkids. God must have needed him deeply to call him away from his loved ones. Bless them in the months to come adjusting to his physical absence here on earth but he remains near his family and in their hearts and memories forever.
