In 1956, Dan and I were classmates at Clearwater Senior High ( FLA. ). He was a sophomore and I was a senior. After graduation, he went to Florida State University and I to University of Florida. Big rivals football. After high school graduation, we did not meet again until 1983 (almost 30 years) when we both were hired by Liberty Life in Greenville. On my first day of work, I was sent to VP of Personnel to fill out paperwork. What a SURPRISE when Dan stood up behind his desk and said, " You are Herby Mitchell and your senior year, yal'll won the state basketball tournament". I said"no, we did not, but thanks for the thought. However, he continued to tell that story to Liberty empoloyees when we were at meetings or parties. Finally, I told him to KEEP telling the story since SC people don't know any difference. We laughed about that joke a few times. He was a special man whose faith made him who he was. Herb

I knew Dan when he worked at Liberty Life and he was such a caring person. I know your loss is great but I'm sure he is happy and whole to be with his Savior and wife. May happy memories bring you peace and comfort.

We were blessed to have Dan and Barbara as neighbors for years in Sugar Creek. The list of beautiful memories is much too long to include here. Dan was one of the kindest and most generous people we’ve met. Great supporter of the “underdog”. Quietly spread his joy and humility and sense of caring. We have several wooden treasures that he carved for us in his workshop garage - a small nativity set, a replica of our house…. Sincere sympathy to his children and grandchildren. How lucky you were to have him in your lives!

Please accept my deepest sympathies. Sydney described her grandfather as a wonderful man who brightened the world for the lives that he touched.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Heaven has surely gained a special Angel is Dan. I was so blessed to know Dan through Rock Steady Boxing Greenville. He faithfully supported one of our Parkinson's Fighters, bringing him to regular classes and acting as his "Cornerman" during the entire class. Dan was a joy to know, a joy to speak with and a joy to learn from. He surely walked in the footprints of God, spreading his kindness and care to all. My love and prayers go out to his family.

I knew Dan from our Sunday School class. Whenever he would see me in class he would come and give me a big hug. Even though I was 10 years older than Dan I always appreciated his big and strong hugs. He was a very kind and loving man and I will miss him.

I had heard so much from Lilly about her wonderful grandfather. After reading this; I was moved to tears thinking what a loss he is to not only his family but the world. I lament the sorrow you must be experiencing but he of all people left surrounded by angels. Of that; I am sure!!! And you are surrounded as well. We love you! Glenda and Ray

Dan was one of those rare folks about whom I can say "I was blessed to know him and call him friend." He was marked by many qualities that I envy, especially his unfailing kindness, his humor - almost always of the dry sort! - and his serenity in the face of any circumstances.

I worked with Dan at Liberty Life (Liberty Corp) for several years and enjoyed working with him. He was exactly as described. One of the most pleasant people I've ever worked with. He truly cared about his staff in Human Resources, as well as all the employees in the company. He also sold me my first Honda (and a few others over the years). I know you all will miss him terribly -- especially the grands and great-grands. What a blessing to know that he is now with his precious wife in his Heavenly Home. Prayers for your family.
