Danny was a survivor, a strong and determined man who refused to give up. He was a forgiving man. He loved his neighbors and was always looking for ways to help when he saw a need. Danny loved the Lord and loved his church family. He enjoyed fellowship and singing bass in occasional church group specials. Danny enjoyed people, visiting and being a part of his community. He loved spending time on the lake during the summer, just hanging out with “No Drama” (his boat’s name). He was a jack of all trades and there was nothing he couldn’t do or figure out how to do on You-Tube, even if he had to rig it up with duct tape, it would get fixed. He was a recreational pilot who loved the thrill and fulfilment he got from flying. Danny loved to hunt especially with his daughters and dog Panther. His favorite season was fall, when he could stay @ the Longbell Hunting Cabin and hunt to his heart’s content. Danny said he loved the feeling he got in the woods of being so close to God’s creations. Danny always kept his spirits high. He was left in a state of constant and daily pain after his plane crash in June 2006. The cancer he endured since at least December 2019 was the most challenging for him, but he was always looking to enjoy life and find happiness. He never gave up even after he relized treatment weren’t working, he still chose to believe he know his Lord and would go to be with Him, and either way was alright with Danny. He never stopped smiling and until the end he was always giving encouraging advice and positivity to all those around him. What a wonderful example he was to us all!
While we all know and love Danny we can rest in knowing that he has gone on before us to be with his Heavenly Father & Savior Jesus Christ forever more. If you have accepted Jesus as your savior you will see Danny again in the Kingdom of God. Oh what a day of rejoicing that will be!
