Dan was so many things; a devoted father, husband, brother and son. However, to most who knew him, he was a great friend--reliable, honest and good-hearted.

Dan was killed tragically on July 9, 2015 while doing what he loved, cycling.

This fund has been created to help offset costs for Dan's final expenses, help his loving wife, Jill continue to provide a lifestyle for their boys, Damon & Devon and begin an account to cover their future education.

Hey everyone...just a head's up for those able to come out and lend support on Friday, Feb 19th @ 9:30 in Doylestown at the Courthouse for the trial sentencing of the woman that killed Dan. The judges determination may be swayed by our show of force.

See you there!

My heart is so overwhelmed with the generosity of our family, friends, co-workers, and even those we do not know. At this point in this most devistating time I just have no other words besides THANK YOU and I LOVE YOU ALL. As Dan would say 'ride on' but I will add 'safely'.

Thank you for all you donations, which have covered Dan's funeral expenses! Unreal how much a funeral adds up!! Dan and I talked now and then about the future. He was so proud of his boys and how smart they are. Dan always said he wanted them to attend Penn State as he did!! Wendy Hawkes took his life, has no insurance, no job, no kids, no license, and nothing to loose in life. I just don't want her to take Dan's dreams too! I'm asking Dan's fellow alumni to help his dreams stay alive and to reach out to all Penn State alumni to help in our college fund raiser for the boys!! Please help us spread the word in every possible list, network, channel, group, team, etc. in keeping Dan's college dreams alive for them!!!

I've heard from my brothers what a nice man Dan was and am so sorry that he is no longer with you. I hope this small contribution can help with the boys' education.
