Oh No.
I am so sorry to hear that.
My condolences to his friends and family.
I hunted with him a couple times a decade or so ago, great guy.

Indeed... I was a member of the BBQ team Cap't N Smoke. He had many passions... and fish and BBQ were at the top. Miss you already Dan... The Mad Hunky

Well...I guess there's not much more that I can add except...he fought for and believed in a controversial treatment that apparently helped him and others...I guess I would try anything if faced with Cancer!! I never got to taste his fabulous BBQ...nor share time fishing with him but....WE were brothers thanks to this site!! RIP Spanky.......

I am really bumming about this. Spanky got me into my first Steelhead and it was the last time we fished.

I held a little Christmas guide give away for my guiding business this yeae and Dan won it. I was excited to give back to the him and spend another Day with him. Unfortunately the trip never happened.

Tonight I went fishing in his name. It wasn't chrome but I caught a nice pike.

Keep those lines tight Spanky. RIP

This is so sad to hear. Met him years ago in Muskegon, and of course he and I were both here pretty much from the beginning. Seriously, may he rest in peace.

His wife says There will be a memorial service August 1 at 11 spring valley church. Here is A Link on it's location for anyone able to attend.

I tried to set her up with a PP account, but it's just too much a PITA and wait for it to be verified. With Janet's permission I will collect anything you folks would like to donate to help defray the considerable medical costs incurred by the family.

You can donate to [email protected] Paypal address. Please donate as "Sending money to a friend" to avoid me paying fees. If you can't find that choice...dont sweat it...no big deal. Also PLEASE include a note/message "For Dan's Family" just to make it easy to keep track of the monies.

Thank you all, and thank You Dan!

Fished with him on the "Genuine Raft". Always enjoyed talking with him at the winter river tournament. He will be missed.
