Because Mr. Dan worked with KSPS and on jobs with my Dad, I met him many years ago--when I was much younger. I first knew him as ‘Waddles’…everyone on Dad’s crew seemed to have a nickname , and that was Mr. Dan’s.
When I met him, he was definitely a southern charmer, holding to the old-fashioned southern etiquette that seems to have been lost on present generations. He was always pleasant to talk to and an all-around great guy to know!
Little did I know that, in 2000, I’d marry his step-son and have Mr. Dan become my (step)Father-in-law for nearly 14 years. Oh, the stories he told! We enjoyed going out to eat with him…although we’d try to pay for the meal, he always had it already taken care of. He’d tell the waitress that all he needed was a little bit of time and a few kind words, and of course, a large glass of sweet tea! Riding with him in his F250’s was always exciting! Lol
He became grandpa to my kids. My son and my oldest nephew had the most time with him and they affectionately called him ‘Boo Boo’. My oldest shares memories of riding on the zero-turn mower with him,large jaw breaker suckers from Cracker Barrel, ice cream, getting extra large popsicles from Bordelon's store, watching westerns, Yankee dimes, and 'thick pants'...and so much more!
Even after he and my mother-in-law divorced, Boo Boo was still in contact with us and very much a part of our lives. I had just spoken with him four days before he passed, and my oldest son, Zachary, who would call him frequently, planned to call him the day he passed. We grieve the loss of our dear Boo Boo Dan. We loved Mr. Dan and cherish the memories we had with him.
Our prayers go out to his wife, Ms. Charlotte, and her family, as well as to Ms. Janie and Erin. We pray for each of our family, too, as Mr. Dan left a mark in our lives and the lives of the ‘grands’ who called him Boo-Boo. Love ya, Mr. Dan! Psalm 23 ~ April
