I worked with Dan many a year back in the golden days of Anco/Basic. We definitely shared a laugh or two. Deepest condolences to the family.

Jo and family, so sorry for your loss. In all the time we worked together at Anco, Dan was very nice to me and always had a smile on his face. He is in our Father's hands now.

Rest in Peace Dan Johnson! I will miss our long office chats, your witty sense of humor and of course our discussions on LSU football! The world lost a good one and the Lord gained a gem! It was my pleasure to call you a friend. I pray for strength and comfort in the coming days, for your family. RIP
