    There really are no words that make this better. My heart is with you all. I am heart broken. Prayers and hugs.

  5. I’ve known Dan ever since he came to work at APD. Though we never worked in the same units or on the same shift, we seemed to connect- both of us quiet, laid back, doing our jobs as best as we knew how, and not doing them half-fast. He volunteered to help Troy Medina and I when Johnnie High asked us to be at his Christmas shows to collect money for Santa Cops. Dan was there at almost every show and did that until I retired in 2006. The ladies there loved Dan and liked to flirt with him and see his face turn red. You could also tell that he had a desire to help kids and did so every year with Santa Cops and in the schools and on patrol. It is still a shock to think of him being gone but I know that when we get to heaven, he’ll be there with a big handshake and hug and a “Hi again” in that deep distinctive voice. I am sure that you, his family, are proud of this guy.

  6. My heart breaks for you Carran and your family. I will miss Dan’s friendly waves to me each morning and evening when we crossed paths in The Canyons. He was a great neighbor to have always stopping to chat with a smile on his face. I always felt a little safer knowing he was just a short walk away from our house. Dave and I will miss him greatly. May he rest in peace.
    Our deepest sympathies.
    Sherry Miller & David Pulling

  7. Aunt Mary Ann & Uncle Ed

    Carran, Johnathon, Timothy, & Nathaniel, You are all in our prayers during this trying time. The states between us did not keep Daniel out of our thoughts. He was one of those special people that we were very proud of. I was his first babysitter. I will admit he could be a “little stinker” which comes with the Armstrong name. I have to smile as all those memories come flooding back. We will miss him and the stories I would hear from Arnold & Louise. Love always.

  8. I am so very sorry for your loss. I loved working with Dan, he always made us laugh!

    Dear Armstrong Family. I am so very sorry for the loss of your Son, Brother, Uncle Father and Husband. I knew Daniel growing up in Port Huron and at Griswold St Bapt Church. I am so very sorry for your loss.

  16. I had the pleasure of working with Dan from his beginnings with APD. He was very good with people, lending a sympathetic ear when needed and using that deep voice when necessary. Dan was a steady hand, he will be missed.

  17. John & Emily Bailey

    We are so sorry to hear this, and our hearts go out to the family and friends. As a lifelong Arlington resident, I appreciate greatly the service and sacrifices our officers give, and Dan was a member of that great group. Clint and Cheri are in our prayers, as are all the family. John and Emily Bailey

  18. A good heart has stopped beating, but a good soul has ascended to heaven. Dan, I will sorely miss you, your professionalism and that dry sense of humor. May you rest in peace and my condolences to your family.

  19. Lots of great memories of uncle dan but one I can’t help but laugh at is when mom, Dad, carran, dan Hannah and Carson were coming back home from dinner in Whitney. Dan was driving behind me in the canyons and he decided to take a different road to cut through and bet me back to the house. I noticed and took off flying down the road passing him, blowing my horn. He just shook his head and laughed at me. Love and miss you uncle Dan.

  20. Terry & Julia Oliver

    Our prayers and thoughts are with you. We enjoyed working with Dan at White Bluff.
    We always enjoyed his stories. What a Great Man.

  21. I knew Dan as a teenager at Griswold Street Baptist Church Youthgroup. He was a tall, lanky kid then. Quiet at times, with an underlying humor that couldn’t help but break through on occasion…but, even then I could tell he was a man of honor, integrity and strength. I enjoyed hearing stories about him and his family and work from his Mom and Dad when I ran into them, their pride beaming through their eyes and smiles.

    To Louise, Arnie, Carran, and family…my deepest condolences to you, and prayers for comfort and peace knowing his place is with Our Heavenly Father. He is safely Home.

  22. To the family, I just learned of Dan’s passing and I am very sorry for your loss. The last years of my service at APD I worked very close with Dan. He was a very GOOD cop and always there for me. Again I’m so so sorry for your loss and ours.

  23. Pearl & Laurene Swanson

    We knew Dan growing up in Griswold St. Baptist. His family were always a faithful example of a model Christian home. My sister Darla was closest his age in the youth group.
    We were saddened to hear of his sudden passing. May God bring comfort and peace to Carran, his children, grandchildren and parents Louise and Arnie and all who loved him. We will meet Dan again in heaven soon.
