I always wondered who the Shapell Exec was who lived at the tip of the street. This is a very nice tribute. We all have complaints about the homes we bought in this area, but the truth is, Shapell built them as perfect as anyone should expect. It's nice to put a face and name behind the leadership behind this high quality home building. My best wishes for his wife and family.

I was lucky to serve on The Bridges Tree Committee with Daniel last fall even though it was clear he wasn't feeling well. I took it as evidence of his love of the community he helped to create. We all will miss his influence in our community and in San Ramon.
