    We were so sorry to hear of Dan’s sudden passing. We have many fond memories of Dan helping us on the farm. Herb has many memories also of growing up together in the Thorncreek area and riding the bus to school in Moscow. Dan was always a joy to be around. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family.

    May you rest in peace my sweet cousin. Sorry I will be unable to attend your celebration of life with all the other cousins but thought I would share a loving memory with you. Being almost the youngest cousin, I did not get to appreciate Danny’s humor until we were adults. All the cousins attended Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Kester’s 50th wedding anniversary in Pullman. We left the reception at the church before our parents did and went back to the house for a cousin’s happy hour. Cousin Jim (the outgoing cousin) had been sharing stories with us. When the was a break in the conversations, Danny in his soft spoken way turned to Cousin Jack, and asked, “And who are you going to get to build your next plane????” I thought Jim would never quit laughing. He was all doubled over and tears of joy rolling down his face. Yep, Danny gave us all a belly rolling laugh of joy. That is the day I got know a different side to Danny. Love, Cousin Terry

    My brother, Tim Phillips, told me of Danny’s passing. I am so sorry to hear he is gone. He was a great guy and I really enjoyed our friendship in High School and over the years later. I send my condolences to his family and will forward the news about his passing to other friends who may know him.
