Danny was a great brother in law. He loved my kids to the moon and back. He was always lending us a hand. He rebuilt our deck and put lights in the attic. He also helped finish insulating my attic ....until he fell through the ceiling a year and a day after I fell through it the year before. He taught my son how to shoot and me too. There are so many things to list. He will be truly missed❤️

Dearest Dan,
We’ve shared many happy times and memories throughout the years. You were more of a little brother than a Nephew. Happy memories and quality times together will always be remembered and definitely cherished forever. Whether hunting together, hanging out, visiting us, and you sleeping over were all happy and enjoyable memories. You even printed up the “My cousin Vinny” breakfast, lunch, dinner menu and brought it over for us. We were hysterical and so appreciative. That’s who you were, always respectful, funny and awesome company, a loving and compassionate person. Thank you for such happy memories. Now you are resting in God’s peace with Dad and all loved ones who have left “this” world. One day we will meet again and look forward for you to make us laugh once again. We love you Dan, God bless you for eternity.
Uncle Rocco, Aunt Jo and Kris 😘🙏🏼

Danny,
Deb & I will always remember the times when we would hang out & watch movies together! But the 2 most memorable times is when the two of us (You & I)would roll play the Skits from the Honeymooners lol & the next is when we sang the song & imitated the guy who sings “IT’S A WONDERFUL WORLD!!” It truly was a WONDERFUL WORLD with you in it!!😢We will always remember your way of making us feel like family! We now have to live our lives with that feeling of emptiness in not being able to See, Hear, or Talk to you!😢💔You are & will be forever in both our Hearts & although you might be gone, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN! We will always be there for Michelle as I know you will be there too! RIP DANNY for you will always be our (RALPHIE BOY)! Until we See You Again!!💔🙏😢

From "It's Better in the Bahama...Breeze" to being at our wedding and taking the most beautiful videos and pictures of our day, (that will always be in a folder with your name on my computer) we will miss your smile, your laugh and your very similar to Ilyssa's sense of sarcastic humor.

Danny - we know you will rest in eternal peace and watch over Michelle. If she thought she had ghosts in her house before... we're sure you will be watching over her for eternity.

Until we see you again...
