Fr. Dan May you rest in peace. You were always a gentle soul, with a great smile and soft encouraging voice. You deserve to be with all the saints in heaven Lisa Haenn Curtis '82

Fr. Dan- what a pleasure to have known him! The Mountain has lost a great treasure.

I don't think I ever eat ice cream without thinking of Hurles giving it up for Lent. He taught me more about God than anyone else. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and the Mountain Family.

Much love,
Jessica Kawski (Hornbeck) SBU `00 & `01.

Br. Joe, you and the other Mt. Friars are in my prayers. Hurls gave his faithful services to the Mountain and University. Thank you Hurls for being at Bonas and God for allowing me to know such a special person. May you rest in peace, Fr. Daniel Hurley.

Heh. Hurls and Jesus are sitting down over a bowl of ice cream tonight. And tomorrow night. And again on Monday.... An eternity of evening ice cream and pie.

My love and condolences to the whole Mountain community, especially the friars who live at Mt. I. and the student and community members who are local. Dan's leaving is a loss to us all, but most especially to you. Peace, joy and comfort to you.

pax et bonum,

A sequel stands beyond,
Invisible as music

I feel blessed to have been touched by Hurls faith, wisdom, insight, love and laughter. His life spoke of gentleness and trust and faith and embraced all. even when his sight was waning I swaer he could still "see" better than most of us. He was real and true and could make a mean blueberry pie.

I love you Hurls and I know that your prayers are still with all of us as ours are with you and the friars and the whole mountain family.

I can still feel you, I can still hear you and I will always be grateful our paths crossed.

PEACE!!

Fr. Dan will be greatly missed! We are so grateful for his Franciscan example of humble service and gentle humor! We are praying for all the mountain folk and all of Hurls' loved ones.

Love,

I am reminded of my wise, long deceased, Grandmother who while lamenting the loss of a loved one, would always remind me that we now have someone close to God to pray for us.If there was ever a person that I believed would be so received by our heavenly Father, it was Hurls. We miss you Hurls but we will be in contact & frequently.
May your spirit find the peace that you so deserve.

Fr. Dan's spirit will walk the mountain trails forever. He will be part of all the great conversations at the big table and the small chats in the corners. All will smile when they think for him.

Personally I will always remember him as a link to my past.

We will remember always the twinkle in your eye, your inimitable sense of humor, and your ever-welcoming spirit. We will miss you, Father Dan! Our deepest sympathies to all the friars at the Mountain and Father Dan's family.

He reflected Francis is the way he lived his life. May he continued to have a "good journey."

I will never forget the stories Fr. Dan told, the pies he baked, the laughs we shared, and the joy he was to be with. The world will not be the same without our Hurls, but his spirit will always be with us.

Peace and Love to all of the extended Mountain community,

Fr. Dan was one of a kind. Seeing him always around campus was daily part of my Bonaventure experience. He was funny. Easy-going. A bit of a pixie in truth. And a good man and a good priest.

My time at the Mountain confirmed what I knew of him from campus. Hard to believe someone who was so Bonaventure through and through is gone.

God speed Fr. Dan.

Rest in peace, Fr. Dan. I'll always remember your smile and your gentle way. No doubt you will be celebrating with the angels this St. Patty's Day!

I am saddened to hear about the passing of Father Dan. I will always remember his kindness, laughter, and of course, bowls and bowls of ice cream. My Bonaventure experience was made all the more richer by knowing Father Dan. May he rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with the Mountain community.
