Rest in peace my beautiful cousin Daniel.

Thank you for the bear hugs, the guitar lessons, the "waves" and the love. You were the most real human being I've ever known, a lesson to us all to feel what we need to feel, to say what we need to say and to love through thick and thin.

Holy shit. So sorry to hear this. Such an epic being. Not only a person has passed - an era. Give BR my love.

April 17 at 6:28pm

Timothy R. Flynn

a week ago yesterday my Dad died. Now I find out today Brynna's uncle Daniel - a truly epic being (and a young man) died. Why are all the giants leaving?

April 17 at 6:46pm

Elisabeth Labis Mac Mahon

so sorry to read such sad news. it is always hard to loose your loved ones, but when they are young, it is even worse as there is a feeling of injustice, that they weren't given the opportunity to do it all...

April 17 at 8:34pm

Lisa Huala Clark

We are all epic, though many don't know it yet. Maybe the great ones are leaving to push/inspire the rest of us into manifesting our own greatness?

April 17 at 10:05pm

Krysta Hopper

aw... many hugs and lots of love to you hun. I feel for you.

David A Wilson

Daniel had suffered the last several years from Hemochromatosis - a rare disorder that causes excess iron to accumulate in the body. He had seemed to be on the mend, but the disease had stressed his internal organs, and Friday morning his heart burst.

I am imagining that there was too much love in his heart, and now it has spilled out as light and is everywhere. I am grateful that he is no longer in pain.

April 19 at 4:24am

Diedra Atkins

David –

Our brothers were brothers.

I have so many memories of Danny - his silliness, his beautiful smile, the mischief in his eyes.

My arms are around you in a heartfelt embrace as my heart breaks for you and your family.

Please let us know if you plan a get together to honor his memory....

April 19 at 10:14am

Elizabeth Wilson

so will I....well said

April 19 at 5:50pm

Kimberly Kenney Martinez

When I think of Danny the first thing I see is his smile. Heaven shine much brighter this day because of Danny’s presents. My prayers are with you and your family

April 19 at 9:18pm

David A Wilson

In accordance with his wishes, Daniel will be buried in the cemetery in Juliaetta, Idaho, dressed in his leathers, and in a plain pine box. The burial will occur on Thursday, April 22 at Noon. There will be two memorial gatherings for Daniel in the near future, first in the Port Townsend, Washington area, and then later in the San Francisco Bay Area. I will announce exact details of the memorials as soon as they are decided on.

Nicole Hills

thinking of Daniel with so much love as he is buried today...I feel his joyful spirit and energy everywhere...remembering times backpacking and camping in the sierras, feeling really connected to the earth, the trees, the rocks, the rivers, the animals...feeling the truth of life

April 22 at 10:08am

David A Wilson

With love, laughter, and tears, we returned Daniel’s body to the earth on Earth Day. It was raining hard all morning, and raining still when we began. The cemetery was muddy, but the rain ended before the service concluded, and then the sun came out and it was a brilliant, sunny afternoon. In addition to myself, Chris, and my mom and dad, some of Chris’ relatives from the town turned out in the rain, including her nephew “Little” Ed, who is a guy as big as Daniel was! (And I sure felt Daniel’s weight when we carried his pine-box casket to the grave.) Then who should show up, but our dear friend of 30 years, Tom Phipps, who had driven 6 hours from Helena, Montana, to be present. At noon, the Juliaetta town whistle, normally blown at that time for 20 seconds, was let to wail for a full 2 minutes in honor of Dan – For me that was the moment of greatest emotion. We played a recording of Jerry Garcia singing “The Teddy Bear’s Picnic” and then remembered Daniel with stories. It was left to me to read the lines “On Death” from Kahlil Gibran’s “The Prophet.” – A passage that Daniel always read at the funerals of those that he loved. After he was buried, we stopped in town at the Bottoms Up for a drink, and then back to Lewiston where my family and Phipps had many drinks in Daniel’s honor. Today is a new day, and we proceed in light and life.

April 23 at 6:55am

David A Wilson

Forgot to include this important Daniel detail... At the service conclusion, we lit off bottle rockets, and those who wished fired off Dan's shotgun. His wife Chris - who he had never been able to get to fire a gun - fired the last shot.

SO incredibly beautiful, David. I so wish we had been there, but THANK YOU for sharing this

David A Wilson

On Death

You would know the secret of death.

But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?

The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.... See More

If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.

For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;

And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.

Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.

Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.

Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king?

Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?

And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.

And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.

And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

-- Kahlil Gibran
