I got to know Danny back in the 80s when I worked with his wonderful parents at Ron’s Auto Supply. I was always treated like family around all of the Heintz family. That’s how I will remember Danny as well. Loved his smile and laugh. Thinking of you all during this sad time. Much love and prayers to you. Gina

Dan,
I will miss you my brother. Our families have shared many good memories. You’ve always been there for me since we met when I was 9 years old. You have always opened your home up to me; a place where I could escape to in my difficult teenage years. Not only did we spend holidays and special occasions together but when I was young and on my own, anytime I needed help you were there. Your children learned how to be a caring, selfless and giving as you always were. I will miss you calling me “Jack”
Forever in our hearts ♥️

Brother Dan,

I still remember all the times we were up hunting and talking around the campfire. Jim and I sure have missed your presence around the campfire these last few years. When we are up there we talked about you all the time and how much we wished you were there.

I have so many memories of you and the good times we had. Bowling together with dad, Randy and Noel. We won 2 championships in a row.

We will continue thinking of you when we are out hunting and fishing and wish you were here to enjoy the outdoors with us like you did.

You were one tough ass man and I learned a lot from you.

We loved the outdoors so much it was almost sickening, but we loved our families more.

I will miss you Dan, my brother and friend I loved you man.

Until we meet again you will be in my thoughts...

Your brother Brad.
