    Erleen, Dana, Tammy, Scott and Todd:
    Danne was a wonderful human being. He was an advocate for students when he served on the B-ESD Board. He cared deeply about our community. When I became the superintendent he reached out to offer support. He checked on me every year and gave me words of encouragement-always positive. He will be missed. My best to all of you.

    It was a honor and pleasure to have known, worked for, and had Danne as a friend.
    He was the most understanding person that I had ever worked for. Maybe to understanding of me some times. LOL

    I met Danne when he was the board president at Skagit Farmers Supply. Danne was the most honest, caring person always interested in the people around him. I am so glad that I got to know Danne and I will miss him. He was a special person and touched many lives throughout his life. Peace and prayers to the family.
