Tomorrow at Coach Daniel's Celebration of Life service, many swimmers are planning to pay tribute to his love of life on the pool deck by wearing DCST team shirts, flips flops and tie dyed bandanas.  However, your family is encouraged to dress in the manner that you see fitting.  There will also be an opportunity to share your memories at the service. Parents, in order to help you prepare your swimmers, you should know that there will be no casket.

A slide show will be shown at the service.  If you have photos of Dan that you would like to be included, please send to Coach Jen Brown at


A light meal will be served after the service.  If you would like to contribute a dish or provide a meal to the Ave family at another time, please contact Eleanor Bently at 614-348-9494.


In Lieu of flowers consider a donation, card or gift card for the family.  The following links have been established for that purpose. l-ave-memorial-fund 9-the-daniel-ave-family-fund
