    jdandy R.I.P.

    I have just learned that Dan (jdandy) has passed away due to complications from his surgery.

    This is very sad news. I spoke to Dan many times by phone. He was always calm cool and helpful.

    Re: jdandy R.I.P.

    This is the last thing I wanted to hear about during these times of doom and gloom with the corona virus epidemic upon us. Incredibly sad news. I did not know him personally but always appreciated his courteous, balanced and insightful comments.
    I believe his wife passed away not too long ago. He has now joined her in heaven.

    jdandy R.I.P.

    I am devastated to learn of Dan’s passing. What a kick in the gut. A nicer person I’ve never known, always giving of his time and knowledge for his fellow music loving brethren. What a gem you are Dan. RIP my friend. Your old 601s have been up and running nearly non stop this week in my system. Later tonight, I will listen with heavy heart to your amps. Maybe I’ll queue up some Liz Story as a tribute. So sad.

    Re: jdandy R.I.P.

    I came to the forum with a problem, and he was the first to help me, I never have forgotten that.

    He also convinced me to buy an Aurender N10.

    He was a friend, I’ll miss him, he will now be with his wife - May they both be reunited. RIP!

    Re: jdandy R.I.P.

    This set of news is a real surprise. I’ve known Dan (online only) for at least 8 years. Always a gentleman with terrific insights and very willing to help.

    Recently, 2 years?, he lost his wife Marlene. I could tell the loss hit him hard. I invited Dan to come down to Sarasota and he said he would sometime. Sadly, we didn’t follow up on that.

    Rest In Peace Dan. You are missed.

    Re: jdandy R.I.P.

    Oh... my... God!

    Dear Dan, you were far too young to go.
    In my feeling you were still a boy who so much liked to play with boy's toys.
    Top hifi gear, a nice car.
    And you could so well transfer your love of those toys to us, and teach us about them.

    Your reviews were/are the best of the forums. Basta!

    In your communication - and we got a bit closer after the death of your beloved wife - you were always most attentive and a top gentleman.

    I will cherish the cables I bought from you.
    Once, there was one blocked at customs, and you wrote me I don't remember how many mails to find out whether it had finally arrived.

    I will miss you sorely Dan.

    My condolences to your family, and to all your friends.

    So very sad to read this news as this really hurts.
    Dan's contribution to this community has been an immense positive influence for many years.

    He will be missed in a big way as no one can replace what he contributed on a daily basis. Not only did he have a deep love of this hobby, but also shared his love for his animals and many other adventures over the years.

    Rest in peace Dan ...... you will always be fondly remembered.

    So sorry to hear this, while I never had the pleasure of personally meeting Dan he had a way of making everyone feel like they were a longtime friend. He always handled things as a true gentleman and treated us all with respect, a real mensch. May he rest in peace with his beloved wife and may his memory be a blessing for all who knew him.

    What horrible, sad news. What a shame. I've known Dan (via forums only) for several years, back on the Audioaficionado forum. I know he lived here in Florida, so kind of like a neighbor to me.

    RIP Dan. You will be missed.

    Re: jdandy R.I.P.

    This very sad news. He has been a constant on the sites I visit from day one. A very knowledgeable contributor who was always ready to search out solutions and answers to out questions. Sad that both he and his long time partner passed within a relatively short period. I think she passed just over a year ago.

    RIP My Friend.

    Contributions the likes of which Dan made are why I hang out here at AudioShark. I’ll miss his presence.

    I am very sad to read this thread. I have exchanged messages with Dan several times. He was always open and friendly and accepting of others. I am so sad today. RIP my friend and enjoy your reunion with your love, your wife...

    I was thinking about Dan not long ago as I didn't see his regular posting, always friendly, helpful, best guy around, and now I just see this thread ...
    It is very sad, RIP Dan. I was already missing your posts, you'll be greatly miss going further ...

    We lost a great shining star, a man of high respect and dignity and humanity.
