    My husband and I were fortunate to know Dan through Federal Corporation. Through the years we got to know him and were astonished by the man he was. The things he has accomplished in such a short life, were amazingly inspiring. He was the most kind, generous and brilliant man. He always took the time to look beyond the first layer of people. He had the ability to see the best of people no matter who they were or where they came from. Dan changed our lives forever. He assisted in putting my husband on a road we never thought we would travel. We now are looking towards the future in a whole new way. We have always considered Federal as family and share in the terrible feeling of loss. I know Dan has went on to be with our Lord and that gives me a since of peace, however he will be greatly missed very day. Our hearts go out to the Loeffler family.

    Dan is my oldest son’s age. Though I do not know him, my son, Joe, is also an attorney. Please accept my sincere and deepest condolences. Larry Banyash
