My memories of Danny, from the day he was born up to his 20's, great smile, very outgoing, always joking with me, into the latest hair style, loved ridng his bike with his buddies in Lawton. He will always be in our hearts.

I can't believe you are gone Danny. Lots of childhood memories of Easter & holidays with the family.
All the times and laughs we shared as kids. I wish I had reached out to you as I thought of you often over the past years.
RIP Danny, rest easy now.

Your cousin

My wife and I are neighbors of Dan's. We quickly became great friends and spent many fun hours together. ( golfing or just hanging out shooting the breeze) We will miss him terribly. All our sympathy goes out to Erica, Zoe and Shelby. He loved and was so proud of his girls. May he rest in heavenly peace.

I am heartbroken and devastated for Erica and his girls. Last time I spoke to him I was so impressed with how much pride and love he spoke of his family. I will cherish the memories I have of him. He was a very important influence on my life and I will miss him terribly. My heart is with his family.

Danny the last time I saw you was 11 years ago in Lawton at Applebeeโ€™s with Laura. My family was having a going away party for me because I was moving to Los Angeles. I told Laura make sure you bring your brother with you. You were so full of life and had so much to live for. Iโ€™ll always remember you. You were super cute and my older sister was trying to flirt with you. . So now youโ€™ve crossed over to Eternity and with your loved ones. What a celebration in Heaven. Say hi to Kathy and Stella for me. You will never be forgotten , also say hi to my daughter TRINITY for me! RIP๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐ŸŽ‰God bless you

Danny was a customer of mine for several years. He was a great guy! The last time I saw him he was in the store with his 2 girls. He always spoke highly of his wife and kids. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Rip Dan

Sweet Erica...๐Ÿ’ž
It's impossible to believe, that Danny has left this Earth...I have this sweet memory, of him, at TheToddlerClub, picking the Girl's up, at the end of his day....

He would never use the code, to get in...said he couldn't remember ๐Ÿ˜....
I'd look up, and he would be standing there, smiling at me, through the

I'd open the door, and give him my usual....DANNY!!!!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—
....we'd chat about his day and then the Girl's would appear, with squeals and hugs....and off they would go!!!๐Ÿ’ž

....He was ALWAYS happy...a special man, with a wonderful family, that he adored...

...I am SOOO sorry for your terrible loss....๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Much love,
