It was a privilege to get to know Danny. All this time though I never knew about his roller skating prowess. From a guy who can barely stand up on a pair of
skates, I would have had even more respect for him—if that was possible.

In our office he will always be remembered as the “Blueberry Man.” Ask Dorothy. She will explain it.

Godspeed Danny! You are missed.

I am so sorry for your loss. I was a classmate with Dan in Elwood. I remember riding in his 55/56 Chevy out on County Line Road during lunch period in High School. I am sorry I lost track of Dan.

I will miss that laugh of his. He always cracked me up when he got tickled about something. Loved that unique laugh of his!

Praying for all of you. Love you.
