Daniel was the greatest human being; he had a vibrant mind and great attitude. He grew up behind a candy store on the west side of Chicago…came from humble means…and was the product of parents who immigrated from Russia to seek a better life in the United States. He remembered when seeing an airplane was a big event…he lived through the great depression and fought in the Pacific Theatre: Okinawa…he was thirty yards away from Ernie Pyle, the famous war correspondent when he was killed by a snipers bullet.
