Dan loved Star Wars since he was a kid and feared he couldn't make the Dec. 18th opening of the newest Star Wars epic, The Force Awakens.
Twitter lit up under the hashtag #ForceForDaniel. The tweets caught the attention of cast members. Director J.J. Abrams soon called Dan - his dying wish would be granted.
So last Thursday the near-death man was treated to unedited screening of the full film. Last night, just four days later Dan died in his sleep.
