Daniel touched many lives because he was a caring, generous, fun loving man always willing to lend a hand to help someone in need. Daniel could light up a room with his funny, comedic nature and beautiful smile.

Danny May you Rest In Peace and I ask that our Heavenly Father comfort the Esparza family for their loss of Husband, Father, grandfather. 💗
