Our condolences go out to Dan's Family. Chuck worked with Dan and they enjoyed playing jokes on each other. After they both retired Chuck enjoyed going almost every Monday to his house for coffee and chit chat. Even though he knew it was the best thing for Dan, Chuck really missed him when he moved back to Arkansas. He still kept in touch and was sorry to hear about his passing. We are glad he got to spend time with Lisa and the rest of the family the last months. May he rest in peace. He was a
great guy and will be truly missed by all who knew him.
Chuck & Cathy Gatton, Oswego, Illinois

Dan McCoy was my father-in-law when I was married to his son, Wade McCoy. Dan was a very kind and generous man. He was a man of his word and always showed me love. My children and granddaughter referred to him as Granddaddy Dan. He will be missed by my entire family. He is now safely home and at least free from pain. My heartfelt condolences go out to Dan's entire family.. I am happy he was with family in Arkansas . Deborah Nicholson f/k/a Deborah McCoy, Sun City West, Arizona
