Danny, rest in peace my friend. I enjoyed talking with you about Springfield and how's it's changed over the years. The Time-Out tokens, lunches together, and just shop talk. You were a real dude who always spoke his mind. You always had this way of talking to people like you knew them. You'll be missed. God bless and my condolences to the family.

Danny will be sorely missed. I could say lots of great things about him but I’ll miss his humor and penchant for unveiling the latest pop culture references most. Thanks for all the lessons you shared.

I was fortunate to work with Danny for several years. He had a rather sunny disposition about him, regardless of work issues or health concerns. Danny had so many stories to tell, and I don't really know if I heard the end of any of them. So many good stories. He was a brilliant technician who had a wealth of knowledge that he shared freely. I have missed Danny since we stopped working together and I am so sad to hear of his passing. He made the world a better place and I know our loss is Heaven's gain.

I found Danny to be a delight to work with, his pride in his work and dedication to his team was unmatched in all my professional years or work. He was a kind man, with bountiful stories on almost any subject you can think of. My heart and prayers go out to his family for what I know is a great loss of a good man. There are no words to easy the pain, but I hope God keeps his loving arms around his family and they are able to find some comfort there.
