This post is dedicated to Dan aka DanNY who passed away on February 18th, 2023 after a long battle with cancer.  It was very heartbreaking to receive the sad news from Harjit (a long time close friend of Dan’s). If you’ve ever visited MAXIMA.ORG, then of course you know of Dan. He was an active moderator who was truly passionate about the Maxima community and genuinely helping out others.

Dan was also very active on NYCMAXIMAS.ORG (bright and early every day). A true pioneer and legend in the Maxima game. We had the opportunity to meet him a few times in person ( he was very low key). Very nice guy and super knowledgeable. He was a 3rdgenner 4 life and had a beautiful 3rdgen! He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

We send our deepest condolences to his friends and family. 

Hug your kids and families, reconnect with friends you lost touch with because tomorrow is never promised. Don’t sweat the small stuff in life….bc it’s just not worth it sometimes. – Dan aka DanNY
