Dana also used his computer to research computer software, how to make repairs or building them from scratch. He made sure to have the best software to play his favorite games such as, Far Cry and Doom.

Dana found peace listening to music such as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Metallica, John Mellencamp, Jimmy Buffett, U2 and more. Dana even self taught himself to play the guitar.


When Dana wasn't busy with all his extra circular activities he would pop a giant bowl or popcorn, relax on the couch watching documentaries about his favorite bands, animals, nature as well as the latest movies or TV shows.


Dana will be missed by his family and friends deeply. His wish was to be cremated and have a private service.
