Danny loved first and foremost his family. He worked locally as a subcontractor installing flooring in all of the NRV for 20+ years until he was forced to stop due to his illness. He enjoyed Redskins football regardless of their performance, restoring old cars, and fishing. Danny was always there to help friends and family with projects or whatever else they needed.

Danny will be laid to rest beside his father at Roselawn Memorial Gardens, Christiansburg following the Funeral Service.
