Not only were Danny & Linda our weekend warriors, Danny was my partner in forming Buffalo River Marina. He was an unsurpassed talented collision man and exhilarating to be around. He will be sincerely missed and remembered fondly. It is our prayer that he and Linda are at peace together.

Carole and I want to express our heartfelt sympathies to Daniel and Dennis. Danny was my colleague, my partner and my friend. We worked together and had many laughs together. Danny had a heart of gold and was generous to a fault. His voice was gruff, but he was a kind soul. Carole and I became very close to Danny and Linda and will never forget the great times we spent together. When we heard of his passing we were filled with grief. We will never forget you Danny and Linda. We are glad you’re together again.

God bless, Dan and Carole Rojek

Danny and Linda greeted Bob and I on our way to our honeymoon in Niagara Falls way back in 1976, with our first bottle of champagne st their house in Hamburg, NY! Danny offered advice that inspired me years later... he said in his gruff voice, “ if you ever build a house , subcontract it yourself, you’ll save thousands of dollars!” And you know what, I did just that , years later and never forgot his words of wisdom.
years later we were in Hollywood studios Florida and I heard this distinct voice behind me, I turned around to see Danny and his sons in a Disney vacation. He was a great guy’
