Previous Announcement:

In the early overnight hours of Sunday morning, Dan Hanczar passed away. Dan is my wife, Connie’s brother. Dan was a musician and songwriter. I have had the privilege of mixing and publishing Dan’s multiple albums. His music celebrates his legacy as a man who loved God and family. His music reflects Dan’s heart… earthy and yet full of faith and celebrating his faith tradition. His music will speak and remind us of the treasure of his life and legacy.

Dan will be missed, and held in loving memory.
