Dan will be missed by so many. Professionally, he was very much respected in the housing community.
Dan was a great promoter of homeowners' rights, and was an articulate spokesperson for the housing industry.

Dear Twin Cities.com ,
My wife and I had the greatest but briefest pleasure in meeting, for the one and only time, Daniel Hardy and Mary and their kids, Simon and Elspeth, in London and Oxford last July. Fellow panelists at the Fitzgerald Society, Dan and I were in England to champion our respective role models for its hitherto unrecognized part in the Jay Gatsby legend. Yet both of us instinctively felt that the otherâs candidate had helped to make Fitzgeraldâs hero great.
Our afternoonâs conversation beneath the majestic dome of the British Library, when Mary went off with Jane to look at Egyptian mummies and Lord Elginâs Marbles, ranks among the golden moments of my literary life.
Just last week I did some sleuthing for Dan at the Diplomatic Record Office of Japanâs Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It turned out to be a wild goose chase, but I never minded the time I spent hunting down Dan the Manâs Tokyo hunches because he was my pal in St. Paul, who shared my passion for all things Fitzgerald.
Instead of e-mailing Dan this weekend about my visit to the Diplomatic Record Office, Iâll be writing a heartfelt letter of condolence to the Hardy family.
Dan is going to be more than missed out here. Jane and I mourn his passing and send our prayers to family members and friendsâall those many, many folks whom he had to so prematurely leave behind as he sailed off for a new port of call.
With all sincere wishes,
Michael and Jane Workman
