    It has been years since I saw Danny, but the memory of him and all the years we shared together with our group of friends will be in my heart always. He was smart, dedicated, athletic and most of all… a kind, genuine person. Rest in peace dear friend Danny.
    Love, Dot and friends

    Just heart-breaking. I will always miss that big smile and laughter that could light up a room. He was my brother-in-law, Godfather to my son Ryan and Uncle to my kids. He was just “Danny” to me. So many amazing memories we shared together over the years before and during kids. Just wish we were able to make many more. I will miss you more than you could ever imagine. Until we meet again Danny. May you rest in heavenly and eternal peace.

    We just learned of Danny’s passing and are in shock. I haven’t seen him in years, but we had occasional email exchanges catching up in that time. I remember laughing as hard as I ever had with him…he was a fun guy! Terry and I send our deepest condolences to all the family. God bless you all.

    Despite not seeing him since the early 2000’s, I instantly felt shocked upon hearing the news. Even back in high school,”Bo” was a smart, focused, talented, warm-hearted gentleman. As the saying goes, he was the guy the girls wanted to date and the guys wanted to emulate. A wonderful guy. Sending positivity and healing thoughts to family and loved ones—Tom Page

    Dan (Bo)….. Oh my gosh.. We lived an idyllic, “Leave it to Beaver”, childhood together. The Maryvale Lane/Surrey Lane gang has lost one of its best. I will forever remember those wonderful times and hold them close in my heart. Rest in peace, old friend. My most sincere prayers for all your loved ones you leave behind.

    We are so glad to have known Danny. We will remember his way of making everyone laugh, of his karaoke singing and of welcoming all his friends into his home. He will be missed.

    Danny, you were so much a part of our family life on Peabody. We remember how proud your folks and our family were of your hockey accomplishments. And what fun we all had Chrostmas Eves at the Bowman house. You and your buddies would burst through the front door laughing and celebrating. Our boys Scott and Doug really looked up to you and competed with you arm wrestling. Now you, Mark and Scott and Doug are together again playing hockey on heaven.
    Dan did have a way to make us laugh and was ready to help out anyone. You will be missed Nephew—Tears and Love to all your.Family and Friends especially Mo, Hannah, Kevin and Kyle. And Deb and Jake.

    May you rest in peace and fly high with the angels. I have so many great memories of you and all the laughs, especially your laugh. One memory which stands out is when I brought over your favorite cookies (Oreo’s)since mo didn’t let you have the “real”ones. You always wanted the best for everyone. You are and always will be loved and missed. My first brother in-law.

      So sad to hear this news. I met Bo the first week we were on the hill at Holy Cross. Truly one of the nicest people I’ve ever known. Caring, generous, fun-loving and thoughtful are but a few of the words that I’d use describe him. Enjoyed many a night at the Hart Center following the HC hockey team and Bo. Spent many a weekend releasing the stress of the week with him and our Cross friends. Gone too soon. Godspeed my friend.

    I second John Herzog’s words above about Dan Bowman. Dan was a very friendly, kind and engaging gentleman and we are saddened by his passing. He was a great classmate at Holy Cross College. Terry Walsh HC ’79

    These notices seem to come too often but Bo’s passing is exceptionally hard in that nothing seemed to be able to stop him. We must try harder to stay connected, stay in touch and remember what it felt to be at Holy Cross and have so much ahead of us to experience and enjoy. God bless Bo and all of you and your families.

    Saddened by this news of Bo’s passing. While we knew one another from growing up in Peabody, we became good friends when entering Holy Cross together as freshmen. Bo was a Class A person, a dependable friend, while remembering his laugh and the many fun times we shared, especially being his fan club at Holy Cross hockey games! Sincere sympathies to his family.

    Everyone who knew Bo at HC would echo the words of my classmates. Hard to think of anyone who was more universally liked and enjoyed. The Alumni I gang freshman year was a special group, and Bo was a big part of it. My condolences to his family and all his Peabody friends. We all are missing him.
    Godspeed, No. 16. You did that number proud.
