    I met Danny when I moved to the neighborhood and started 3rd grade at Cedar Crest school. We were good friends from then on through High School. After-á he got married and I was about to ,( I also did my time in the Military) we just lost track of each other for many years. Maybe 5 years ago we met at a yard sale up at Lakeview .We and our wives had lunch and talked forever. I stopped at his house a couple of times and we would catch up. I hadn’t seen him now for a while. As kids we were in trouble all the time. YOU WILL BE SADLY MISSED BUDDY!!!!!

    IGÇÖll alway remember what an amazingly awesome guy he was. We use to go back and fourth at the king family reunion and I of course would tease him a bit unfairly knowing as he would say that four letter F word that he didnGÇÖt like FROG. I enjoyed knowing dan and am so very sorry for the loss of such a great man.

    I remember Dan from working with him at Electrolux, and he truly was a great guy to be around. Always had something humorous to say, and could put a smile on your face. Was he a cut up; sure he was, but always in a decent way. Condolences to his family, and God be with you.
