Dan will be remembered by family and friends for his love of UT football, his devotion to duck hunting and the outdoors, and most of all for his tender-heartedness and care for those whom he loved both far and near. Dan and his wife Elaine were dedicated members of the community in Paris, and he spent many hours learning its local history. Danís absence leaves a place in our hearts, but we are comforted knowing that he is finally at peace after a long illness and much suffering.
