Our beloved local cab driver recently lost his life in a car accident where he was hit head on by a drunk driver. I originally set this fundraiser up to raise money while we hoped he'd recover in the hospital, but now all of the funds will go diretly to his wife, Marie (Angel) Conaway, and their 2 young children. Every bit helps, please donate and share. The web site made me set a goal, so I just picked a number, but let's do our best to do even better than that. Here is the time we can all show some extra gratitude for all the times he made sure we or someone we care about made it home safely.

A quick bit about my connection - I am a regular at Pranksters Too and was introduced to Dan through a bartender there, Dan and his crew have been responsible for getting me home safe about a million times. I am ever appreciative of that!

After I originally set this up, the post was shared with these words which truly encompass who Dan was:

"Dan is more than your typical cab driver. He becomes your friend and often times goes above and beyond just getting the drunks home. Something tragic happened and he can use some help. Most of all I hope he is OK. I'm sharing this hoping that we generate enough donations to alleviate some of the family's stress. He is my favorite cab driver and my friend. Please help if you can. Thank you."

It is with the heaviest heart that I share this update - Dan passed away early in the morning of November 9, 2016. I am told his wife and best friend were holding his hand as he took his last breath. Dan is survived by his wife, Angel, and their two children, Aidan & Elliot.

His family is infinitely appreciative of the love and support the community has showed over the past couple of weeks. Let's please continue this as the general spirit behind this fundraising effort changes. Money has been the last thing on their minds, but unfortunately the bills don't disappear in times of despair.

I'm sure many people will want to pay last respects to such a beloved member of our community. I promise I will apprise of any arrangements as that information is made available. In the meantime, do something kind today (and heck, every day) in Dan's honor. Even the smallest deed can go the longest way.

Hi everyone, I don't have a whole lot to update but didn't want to leave everyone in the total dark. Dan is making tiny bits of positive progress, but there's still a tremendously long way to go. All the love and support are certainly helping, let's keep that going!

Last night, I shared some good Dan stories with friends of mine. Everyone has at least one good story. Please take a moment to share yours in the Comments section.

Also, if internet giving isn't your thing, Pranksters Too and Well Bar (addresses below) have set out jars for people to donate. If you find yourself in the area, stop on by and drop a few bones in the bucket.

I am so, so sorry to hear the news. I had only met Dan a handful of times, but he and his personality left an impression for sure. I wish his friends and especially his family as much peace and comfort as can be obtained in this impossibly difficult time. I'm just stunned.
