I had the privilege of getting to know Danny back in 2002-2003 while working at PGT. Danny was a true professional but more importantly become a good friend. Danny was older than me, so I looked up to him not only in the business world but personally as well. Many times sitting down by the lake or out on the boat, I dreamed of enjoying life they way Danny and Kay did. Their joy of entertaining and living life was very inspirational to Jody and I. It is with deepest sorrow that Danny is no longer with us. Heaven is a better place with him. Jody, Corbin and I will miss him greatly.

I worked with Danny at GE years ago and later he would come to our sign shop to get signs for Gildan. He was always in a good mood and will be missed by all. I am terribly sorry for your loss.
