from friend – Colin Walsh.

Dan was suffering from anaemia. We had breakfast at the CYC yesterday, at the end a storm rolled in and he started to get cold so we left for home.

He said he would be Fine.

Checked in later but after initial response it went quiet, so thought he hit the sack.

No response this morning so we got the Police Rescue Squad to breakdown the door with the Ambos. But he was gone.

He been suffering from other health issues.

  • I first met Dan about 20 years ago when I was working as a taxi driver I drove him to the airport and then he asked me for my mobile number and since then he called me directly if he needed a lift until 5 years ago when I stopped driving since then I would meet Dan every two to three months for lunch or dinner.
    He was the nicest guy I ever met and he will be missed very much, rest in peace my friend

      My name is Maria and Dan and I met in the 90s in San Torino. We became friends and he visited me in nyc and I visited him in Sydney. I met Julie when she was in ny once. Dan met my husband years later and stayed with us in Brooklyn. He was the best ever. We kept in touch once or twice year sharing our lives. It always felt like we just talked yesterday. I’m so sad about his passing. He was the best. We went to the whitsundy islands together. A great friend.
