  1. Dan,

    Seeing your picture on this page is a real shocker, even though I already heard the news of your passing. This is just surreal to me. I do not understand. I wish I could speak to you just one last time. Actually,that’s not true….i wish we’d speak many more time. We were supposed to hang out when I got back to Jersey. I feel so bad for not keeping in touch more. You were, and are, a very good man! I’ll always appreciate our talks, your laugh, and most of you, your encouragement to me…more than once! It was an honor to go through what we went through together…those memories will never change! Thank you for coming to visit Asher and I…I’ll always cherish that hike and that last meal we had together. Dan…I’m praying for you! I’m praying for your family. I love you brother…now and always! Your brother, Paul.

  2. Our deepest condolences to the entire Landry family from Dan’s Primus family. Dan’s dedication, passion and determination will be missed. Please call me if I can help in any way.

  7. Eileen, Conor, Alana & Christopher, I cant tell you how very sorry we are to hear about Dan’s death. He was such a nice person, funny & so supportive of the kids in scouts. All my boys have special memories of him from scouts and he will surely be missed. Reaching out to you, Eileen and the kids in this difficult time and hope that we can be of help in some way. May Dan Rest In Peace. Love to you and your family.

  8. I knew Dan very briefly but in that time I got to know a smart gentle and kind soul. He was very quiet but when he spoke his words were loud. He did inspire me and I have a lot of empathy to his family. As for dan may he find peace and serenity and god rest his soul. RIP DAN.

  9. I’m so sorry to hear of Dan’s passing. I met Dan when we coached our son’s little league team. We had such a good time with all the kids. We laughed that our team never won a game but we had a blast anyway. We talked about coaching again but it never came to pass. He was a soft spoken and kind person. He will be missed. Praying for Dan and his family.
