I’ll miss my friend a lot . His commentary on area sports was always entertaining. We’ve been friends over 30 yrs. and he’s got more sleep time in my lazyboy than I do. Big games on TV , football,baseball, basketball ....and always home and away high school games.......that voice.....that voice...will be missed. I’m sure he’s much happier now ....with his beloved wife . Buy my friend.

To the Lufkin family: I grew up with Dan, so I was over to Mr. Lufkin's house more than he may have liked :) He was always kind to me. Love to all.
