Oh Danny Boy ! Dan was an excellent football & wrestling teammate of mine when I was a freshman at Fairview H.S., before I transferred to Northmont H.S., Class of '66. Dan always had a positive mental attitude; a clean competitive nature; and a great, Irish sense of humor. I'd lost track of Dan since mid-h.s., but I know that Dan was a good man; a good father; and a good American who lived a good, long life. The world is a better place for Dan O'Hara Hecker having been in it. R.I.P. dear, old friend; ERIN GO BRAGH! John DeMoss, Scottsdale, AZ.
