Shirley & Family, I've known Danny since we were in 7th grade, great guy. Haven't seen him for at least 50 years. So sorry for your loss. My Mom knew his Dad, we laughed about that... RIP Danny.
Dan was a loving, giving, sweet spirited soul. His love for his Lord, family and friends were evident in everything he did! It was truly an honor to have known him!! Truly a life well lived for our Heavenly Father! I loved the stories he would tell. Loved that he called you kids every morning to pray for you and your day. WOW, just WOW! Thankful and Blessed to know him! May God Bless you all as you walk with Him through this. Our Love and Prayers for you ALL!
A warm and friendly neighbor who always greeted me with a smile and the genuine joy (of the Lord). I looked forward find him on the beach or along the way. He will be greatly missed!
Dan was my first childhood friend. Loved him and the Ferus family ❣️ My thoughts and prayers to this kind giving and generous man and family.

Our sincere condolences, to the entire Ferus Family, on the passing of Mr. Ferus. May, he Rest In Peace. The Lopez Family
Dan was an outgoing, handsome, friendly man who openly shared his faith. It wouldn't surprise me if he shared his faith with every single person that ever crossed his path. To be around him you quickly realized that Dan loved Jesus and he loved life. I'm so thankful that Shirley decided to retire and move with him to the beach so that they were able to enjoy these past years together in such a beautiful place. My heart is with the entire family, especially with my much loved friend, Shirley.
Anyone who knew him or even just met him, he made sure you heard about God. I loved our talks. I will miss him.

Uncle Dan was at his heart a people person. He was quick to share funny, exciting, and heartfelt meaningful stories. He always tried to connect with people which is why his passing is so hard for the many people who loved him. If he were with us right now, he would remind us that “Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy” John 16:22. I hope the lifetime of joy and connections shared will bring you comfort as you remember and celebrate his life now. May he rest in peace.
