  1. We were so saddened by Dane’s death. He was truly a great person. Butch has known Dane since grade school. I was fortunate enough to meet him in high school. We remember him fixing up cars, opening up The Lighthouse, and even buying and remodeling his first home which Butch shared with him for a while.
    Ellen, we remember the fun time we had with you and Dane when you came thru Mesa several years ago. We actually went back to the restaurant/bar and toasted Dane the day we found out about his death.
    Trevor, your dad was truly a smart, generous, funny, hard-working man. You should be so proud to have been his son. He loved you so.

  2. I was so saddened to hear of Dane’s passing.. Such an easy going guy and always a smile.. Always a friend .. Thoughts and Prayers of Healing for you all in this time of sorrow…

  3. I want to offer my condolences to all the many, many friends that have been so concerned for Dane. Also to the other family members that will miss him, his kind ways. He left nephews, George Kruse (Jilee), Patrick Kruse(Keri),Jeremy Clark, and Brandon Clark. A niece, Charyti Reiter(Steve), and Great nephew, Sam Perron. To Trevor, know that we are available to you 24/7. To Ellen, the same, and my heart goes out to you. Dane would never have left you, given the choice. He was the most satisfied and settled in his relationship with you. We will all miss the humor, the compassion, the caring man that he was.
