No "h" in his last name Dan, but yes, cancer finally claimed my good buddy. May he RIP and may his family be comforted at this time of need.

Thanks Pimpi. Adjustment made.
Great football player, but a far better man. God bless him and his family.
My sympathies to Mirko's family.
I no longer have a colon due to illness and the potential for colon cancer in the future. It's a terrible disease that no one should have to suffer through.
May he rest in peace. I enjoyed watching him play very much. God Bless his family
