Danny was always so nice to me. I truly enjoyed our talks and his stories about the Navy. Danny was always so proud of his family and never missed a chance to tell me the latest about everyone. I will always remember Danny's kindness and big laugh. Fair winds and following seas, shipmate.

Condolences to Danny's family. A great person who served on the City's Veterans Advisory Board with me and always a great visitor and contributor to the military museum when I volunteered to run and curate that museum. Always great conversations and often dove in to give a hand when we were in the midst of a project. Often he would stay and assist in guiding visitors around and was very proud to contribute information on his and of many of his family who served in our armed forces.

Danny -- fair winds and following seas!
