Dan was a great old friend from UB Pharmacy school. I worked with Dan at EJ Meyer Hospital and had contact with him for many years after. I always looked to Dan for advice and loved his humor and his stories.
I drove Dan to the UB pharmacy school Golden Anniversary in Oct 2021 and spoke with him several times after. I was surprised to hear of his passing.
He will be missed.
RIP Colonel Goupil. You will be missed by all.
