I've had the pleasure to work with Danny's wife for over 8 years, and I had met Danny a handful of times. I didn't know Danny well, but I knew he would do anything for anyone. Danny once fixed my lawnmower. It seems trivial, but I was a single parent at the time and so frustrated with not having a working mower. Danny took it apart, cleaned it out, and fixed the issue within a matter of days. I was so appreciative of him for helping me out. Danny was a good, kind soul. He will be missed dearly.

Danny was a rare individual in that he always put the needs of others before his own. In the 20 years I was privileged to know him, I was constantly impressed with his ability to make everyone around him better .He could figure out and fix anything you put in front of him, and if you knew him for any amount of time, he probably fixed something for you. He was patriotic and proud of his service to his country.He will be sorely missed by all lucky enough to have been in his circle, and I am proud to have known him. Doug Morrow
