Danny was such a kind, funny man and will be missed greatly. I have heard so many wonderful and fun stories of Danny and my Dad, (his cousin Ron). They got in to quite a lot of trouble together when young! And they remained close friends into adulthood. It was always so nice having Danny and Pam around the corner from my Grandparents, Bill and Doris, and getting to visit with them when I was with Grandma and Grandpa. When my daughter Ellie was little and we were visiting my Grandparents, down the road would come Danny with Alisa in a little push car and Ellie and Alisa would play. Danny was such a loving father and grandpa. All my love to Pam, Angie, Lisa and Candi and their families. Hold your memories close.
Love,
Julie

Danny and I worked together for 10yrs at GTE. He was truly one of a kind, he was always fun to be around and it was tough to keep up with him at work. Had to call Danny one time when I was living in California, my dad lived just around the corner from Danny. He'd fallen down and couldn't get up, I called Danny and he was there in a heart beat. That's the kind of Man he was. He will truly be missed. Prayers to the family. Will miss ya Danny.

My thoughts go out to the family.
I worked with Danny in Security at the GM plant. Everyone in security liked him. Danny and I chatted often especially when he found out I was with Southwest Fire District (Wayne Twp) and I was working at the Waynedale station. He would stop by periodically in the morning looking for a free breakfast. He spoke a lot about his family, everyone! Danny said he's a lucky man to have such a good family.
He will be missed.

Danny and I worked together in the 70's.
I can still remember his
keeping his sense of humor with a positive attitude even when the job was challenging. He was an inspiration to work with.
Danny will be missed and always remembered.

I too was sorry to hear of Danny's passing. I was a neighbor with Danny as he lived back the lane from my house. We often played together in our childhood years and road the same bus to school. I remember him as a good friend and a fun person to be around.

May God be with each of you as you mourn his death.
