I am not sure where to put this and I know that Dan would probably cringe a little that I'm doing this but as another friend pointed out to me there's no vanity when you're no longer with us and people should know about this. Our great friend Dan passed away unexpectedly earlier this week. While he wasn't active on this site in recent years, he was a great friend to many of us and touched us deeply with his friendship, knowledge, and passion. He was well known in the 550 Maranello section as his pursuit of 550 knowledge bordered on the neurotic and I know that he was at the forefront of uncovering a lot of intricate mysteries about that model when they were still relatively new. There's not a lot that I can or want to share right now but several of his friends thought that this should be posted just so that people are aware.
