  5. My sincerest condolonces to Shelly and her family. Some things just don’t seem fair in this world; one can only hope that some master plan is dictating these unfair events. Some people were sent here to make others’ lives happier and from what I know, Danny did plenty of that. I know he will be deeply missed.

  6. Shelly, My deepest sympathy to you, Katie, Rachel and Daniel’s family. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all.

  7. Dan was a co-worker of mine. I could always depend on him to help me on a reset, he never minded giving me a hand, he didn’t laugh at me. What a wonderful smile he had, no one was happier! I will miss him! I didn’t mind going on a reset if I knew Dan was going to be there.


  9. i am very sorry to hear of dan’s passing. i lost my brother on memorial day so i can identify with what his family is feeling.i saw dan a little over a month ago when i was in weirton medical center.his room was right next door to mine,i got to talk to him for awhile and was aware that he was sick but i didn’t know the full extent.i was a member of company 1 vol. fire dept. with him in the 90’s.dan was one of the nicest guys anyone could have the privelege of knowing.i remember him as a guy who was always willing to help out when i was a newcomer and always had a gift for making people laugh and smile.i know he will be sorely missed by his friends and family.but he is with god now and he will watch over his loved ones and there is no question he will be doing god’s work in heaven as he did on earth.my deepest condolences and sympathy go out to his family and he’ll never be forgotten. charles m. travis

  10. i would like to extend my most heartfelt sympathies from my family to dan’s.my late stepfather kevin phillips and my mother cathleen phillips knew dan very well from the fire department company 1.dan was a paulbearer at my stepfather kevin’s funeral in 1997.i never got the chance to get to know dan as well as my mother and stepfather did.i had spoken with him at my stepfather’s funeral and at the viewings,i sensed that he was an excellent human being,a gentleman,and true blue friend to those who knew him.i do remember that he was a great help to my family in our dark hour.having lost my best friend,my stepfather,and several other close family members in my lifetime,i know that it is very hard to deal with and impossible to forget,i have come to the conclusion that the best way to look at is that they are in heaven and at piece with god therefore the knowledge that we will all be reunited with our loved ones again for all eternity is perhaps our best consoulation to get us through our journey here.on behalf of myself,my brothers kevin robert and kyle,and my mother cathleen phillips,our condolences to dan’s family and friends. frank j. powlikoski and the phillips family
