Danny "Dan" Grey
August 4, 2018
Uncle Danny inspired me by the ways he shared in others times of joy, success, achievements and even pain and sadness. Like no one else, he was always present with high class, dignity and the right words. When he offered to help - he meant it and did so many times. I would compliment him on how "sharp" he looked with his fine suites and shinny shoes, and he always managed to reverse those compliments back to you. He was the example of a caring man and the sound of reason for me. He never took the limelight from someone else, he always made it brighter for other people who could use some positive words of encouragement or help. I will never forget him. He was there for our family when my father died. He came to visit during military assignments in Hawaii, Washington, and attended my battalion change of command at the 101st Airborne Division. I will sorely miss him! Heaven will be better place with him.
