I went to high school with Dan and Beverly. Dan lead an enviable life, as soldier, police officer, great family and he married the prettiest girl in school. He was a good man , a good person , good husband, good father and important member of the community.

Dan and I lined up side by side for inspection every morning at the Los Angeles Police Academy. We were in the same squad in the August 3, 1964 Academy class, and I very much enjoyed our morning conversations before inspection. Although we never worked at the same LAPD station during our careers, I will always remember how good it was to have him as a classmate and friend during LAPD training.

very sorry for your loss, you should know how well he was thought of by his friends and partners of L.A.P.D.Danny was humorous and was a good cop. We worked "the dirt bags" (undercover) and he was one of our top guys. God Bless.
