To Danny's family,

I just recently found out about Danny's passing, and wanted to send condolences to his family. I had the great privilege to work with Danny at Wal-Mart in the International department. We opened many a Wal-Marts and Sam's Clubs and he was a joy to work with everyday. He was like a big brother that looked over us and made sure we had our daily dosage of laughs, which included ELVIS references. He was always very kind, considerate, and just an overall great person that thought of others before himself. He will be sorely missed, but I know that he is with God and looking over everybody that he loved and cared about.

From my family to yours, may he rest in peace. - Aguilar Family

To Danny's Family....I wanted to share as a fellow Walmart Associate my experiences of meeting Danny.

He and I met as we both shopped at the Walmart Associate Store, and I got to know him as we frequented there at about the same time each trip, (and I thought I went there a lot but soon found out that Danny had me beat on the # of trips we'd take ).

I knew him as "Danny" and everyday we'd say hello and exchange stories about the bargains we found while there.

Beyond sharing stories about our shopping, he would always be talking to others in the Store with his big smile; and usually laughing about something along the way.

It was always a treat to see him, and he will be missed by myself and I suspect so many others.

In retrospect and thankfully, I think the best deal I found at the store was Danny's friendship.

Regret, I wasn't able to be at his Services due to being out of town this past week.

With Condolences,
Greg Davis

I have known Danny for 43 years. We worked together at HEB in San Antonio and with him at Walmart International. Danny was the kind of person that would give you Faith, Caring and a true Loving Friendship, that's what we were to each other. I loved him like a brother and will dearly miss him. I know God will take care of him and he will be looking down on us with that awesome smile. We both will miss Danny so much. God be with all of you and praying He gives you the strength and the love of His power! May Danny "Rejoice in Paradise!"
