He had a love for skate boarding and dirt biking and became quite good at those sports. He also loved bowling as well. One of Daniel's favorite quotes was, "Fake it till you Make It." and he lived by that quote as he became quite good at carpentry. He started building skateboarding ramps and as time moved on built many houses and continued to develop his talents as time went on. Dan could learn anything he put his mind to and he used his skills and talents to help many people in the course of his life. As well as gaining the love and compassion of many family and friends along the way.
