I realized today that a great acquaintence and friend that I met through genealogy and our common ancestry has passed. His name is Ransom Deur Park and he was known by all as Dan. Apparently, it was a sudden passing, as he passed away in his sleep.His mother was Elvira Deur and father was Ransom Keith Park.
Here is his obituary:

A loving father, grandfather and brother, Dan is survived by his son, Robert "Bob" Park; grandchildren, Kelsey Park and Christopher Park; sisters, Lynda Nielsen and husband Torkild, Karen MacDermaid and husband Mike, Carmen Minard and husband Gary; and many other loving nieces, nephews and friends.
