What a man, Dan! Holding the utmost admiration and respect for him. I always enjoyed being in his presence and engaging in thought-provoking conversation. What I will always cherish is Dan's character, his generosity, his authenticity, and his bold and audacious manner of speaking and defending his truth. He was a tower of inner spiritual power. Well done, faithful servant!

Dan, your love for this country was as strong as all the action you took to make sure our country, city and state was preserved in Constitutional Dignity! You didn't just talk the talk, you WALKED the WALK! Your belief in me and my work meant so much. When you and Ida came to the school to support me and my program, I was soo incredibly touched!

I met Dan on the 4th of July 2012 in PV. My wife and I were introduced to Dan & Ida by Al Han. I have the greatest respect and admiration for those who served in WW II, the Greatest generation for saving the world. Not long after that I was invited to be part of Dans dream to help form an organization that would bring Hispanics into the Republican party. Hispanics are by nature conservative minded and Dan felt

My Father, Cliff McQueen, has deep and fond memories of his Boy Scout days with Dan. Dan was a strong role model for my Dad and helped lay the foundation for his values, patriotism, dedication to self-reliance and a strong work ethic. He held Dan in the greatest regard and tried to visit every time he came to California. Dan attended Cliff's 80th Birthday celebration in Las Vegas and Dad was thrilled that he was able to make the trip!

Dan Carasso and I were founding members of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly in California and Dan was active in my campaign to become Vice Chair of the CA RNHA in our founding year. His untireless work to bring Hispanics into the Republican mainstream was one of his lifetime goals. I worked on his Assembly races and we were roommates at the RNC National Convention in 1976 in Kansas City, as representatives of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of California

Your kind and loving voice and laughter will forever be missed by Ida, and all of your friends. America is better because of your steadfast and unapologetic fervor and pride in its exceptionalism. You were a true Eagle Scout Master. Honesty, integrity, and goodness were what came from you at all times. Your life has touched many and today we remember you and ask the Lord to welcome your in his presence with the heavenly hosts. Your memory is

Actions speak louder than words. And Dan always acted on his beliefs, was always involved in the Republican party, was always making a difference.
May he find peace and justice in God's heavenly kingdom.

Dear Dan, thanks for for the many memories and exciting experiences. There never was a dull moment. You taught me the value of kindness. You were one special, intelligent and honest man.
