My sincere condolences to all Dan's family. I was so sorry to hear of Dan's passing. He was my hair dresser for several years and I was his tax preparer. He was such a special person. He was so smart and funny. I always left his shop feeling much better than when I had arrived. I will miss our talks so very much.

Mom and I are so sorry to learn of Dan's passing. We love him so much! He made us beautiful (his words!), and he always made us laugh. Mom always brought him fudge when we got our hair cut, and he ate half of it before he would even start working on us. We will miss him until we see him again in Heaven! Novice and Mary Snyder

My mother (Hannelore) is computer illiterate and called me in Texas to ask me to see if I could find anything about her hairdresser of 25+ years, Dan because she could not get ahold of him. When I told her I found the article of his passing she was extremely heartbroken to hear of this news. She talked a lot of how Dan always made her laugh and the 3 loves of his life (those boxers). I've heard so much about him over the years, I feel like I know him. Condolences and prayers for the family ~ we are truly sorry for your loss.

Jeff, and the Cade family, Dan was such an amazing man. I have been seeing him for my hair for almost 20 years. He had a knack to make you feel so comfortable. He made me laugh so many times. He always knew how to cut my hair and just the right color. I called him a wizard with color. I am going to miss him a lot. Please know you are all in my prayers.

My Dearest Friend You will be missed terribly , loved more than you could ever have imagined. We have lost our friend but God has a new and wonderful angel by his side.. Jeff I love you so very much and how wonderful it must be to have known Dan for so long. Jeff you are loved by us and surrounded by so much love . I hope you can find comfort , we can never understand why someone we love so is taken from us and such an empty feeling is left. But never forget Dan is all around you ! I can still see his beautiful smile blowing me a kiss last time I saw him . I'm here for you always. !
01-26-2017 Larry & Virginia Weaver
Our condolences to Jeff & Dan's family. Being a friends & clients, Dan, Larry & I would discuss many different ideas about politics, church & silly things that have happened to us. We had a lot of good laughs & shed some tears. We will miss Dan terribly. We always enjoyed our visits with him. Remember the memories & keep them in your hearts!
01-26-2017 Tammy Simpson
To the family & friends & the many loyal clients of Dan's I send my condolences. He was a wonderful person with such a good heart & a great listener. He did my hair for quite a while & knew as much about me as some of my closest friends at one time. Sadly when I moved to TX for a while & came back, I did my own hair for a long time but, when the time came that I needed him, soon after losing my husband he got me in immediately & did an amazing job & listened to me pour my heart out. Since I had been away for so long, I had no idea he was sick & he never mentioned it, with me being so upset. I only got to see him that one last time in September of last year. I called to make another appt only to find out the sad news, that he was very sick & in the hospital. I kept him & the family in my prayers & will continue to do so. He will for sure be missed by many & I will forever be grateful for his sweet demeanor & his listening ear. God bless you all & may you find peace.
