Play Tribute Movie

He loved his Giants and Yankees. The love for the Giants was probably strongest since he tried out for them in his 20’s. The neighbors always knew when the games were not going his way. He had a great passion for his family and no one ever doubted his heart. He was an avid collector of stamps from his days at the post office, lover of all types of music including The Doors, Beatles, Zeppelin, Hendrix, Joplin, Bob Dillion, and the Stones. Between music and his trivia days, he always knew the latest music, but also kept us all educated in the classic music of do op. He could tell you the song’s name and the artist’s name without having to think twice about it. Trivia was the highlight of his week. He loved singing Red Solo Cup just to get Penny going and ZZ Top La Grange.

He loved taking Penny on cruises and that one trip to Germany he took Penny on, he truly loved their trip to the opera in Hamburg.

We can’t forget his love of movies and his ability to recite lines from Godfather, Blue Brothers, Animal House, and the best and funniest was Gone with the Wind when he would say, “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.” He didn’t like the movie, but he loved that line!

Lord forgive the person that called while he was watching Jeopardy or Tombstone. Lol You knew to call before 7:30 or wait till the next day. Add in his love of Honeymooners, 3 Stooges, and Laurel and Hardy and you knew he was always laughing.

Danny took great delight is dressing up for Halloween. Remember that time he was the Hulk? He also loved spooking the kids with his Halloween mask.

Danny was passionate about just about everything that involved his daughter, Jessica, his wife, Penny, his parents, Fran and Dan, and sister Adrian. He loved all his “Eggies” and they loved him! The original Eggie, Jessica, remembers when he would pretend to be a surf board and a bicycle when she was little. He loved making his famous boobalooba soup, watching the honeymooners together with her, and listening to his records.

We want to remember his sense of humor and his quiet love. He was that friend that would laugh with you and at you and we all loved him for it. He enjoyed entertaining friends and the boys poker nights were always a great night for him. One of his most loved and proudest moments was when he got to meet Joan Rivers at QVC. She called him “Studly” and that was it. His head became a balloon. lol

Even though he was very ill at the end, he couldn’t stop talking about Jessica’s visit and he loved the smoothies she brought him. His wife, Penny, would bring lunch for him and that was a tender moment for both of them. They would go to the luncheonette and I was told they would just look in each other’s eyes. No words were needed. Their love story is one for the ages.

I met "Dan The Man" at QVC and we became friends immediately. We shared many lunches together talking and laughing about everything. He would give me trivia questions everyday and when I learned of a good one I shared it with him to use for when he DJ'd. He looked out for every one of us keeping us safe like a guardian angel. Now he truly is that angel and will continue watching over his family whom he loved so much and all of us. His friend list is endless. I have many years of memories and was blessed to have Dan cross my path. He left quite the footprint wherever he walked. God Bless him and his family. May his memories be a blessing to all. Love you Dan

I am so sorry to hear this news. He was an amazing gentleman. I worked with him at QVC for 14 years. The care and concern he showed when I was pregnant with my son was incredible. My favorite memory was when he met my husband who happens to be a Dallas Cowboys fan...I need to say no more!!
He is at peace now without any pain. My love goes out to his family. I was very lucky to have met Dan and to have worked with him for so many years as part of the QVC family. ❤

My deepest sympathy to Danny's family. Such a special person gone too soon. I knew Danny from QVC, we were all pretty much a family during their stay in Pt. St. Lucie. Danny was the first one you saw entering the building at the Security desk, always a big smile and a nice greeting. I was saddened to read of his passing on Facebook, he fought a hard battle after having a kidney replacement, he was always optimistic and all of us cheered him on.
He had a great personality and was always there to help in any way he could. Even though the center closed I always remember with fondness all of the great people who entered those doors, Know he will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Be comforted knowing he's at peace and in God's House. He will be in my prayers

A life well-lived doesn't end anymore than music ends....
it echoes through time with whispers of beauty and grace

If we listen, we can hear the encore with our hearts,
for the song plays on, just as love lives on

God Bless his family and friends - Reta Andrus

Dan was always there at the QVC door for security when I worked there for almost 10 years. Fun loving, devoted family man, so sad to learn of your passing. May you rest in eternal peace, my thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Dan and I would talk about music at QVC so much that he told me I should start djing with him and so I became his protege and thanks to him I’ve been djing and doing trivia as well for the last 13 years! He was a NY’er after my own heart as we would insult each other over Mets and Yankees, with our joint love of the Giants to bond over. He was liked by all who k ew him and his absence leave a void in this world. Dan you were one of a kind my friend . Rest in peaceful eternity buddy!
