Sending condolences to Danny's family and many friends in McDowell County. I'm late posting this because I hadn't heard until yesterday that we'd lost Danny. He and I met at Wingate College in 1977, and we remained friends all these years. He was kind and gentle, smart, funny, and thoughtful, and he had a no-nonsense personal philosophy and approach to life. Though he suffered in recent years, his determination to keep pushing on and working out at the Y should be an inspiration to us all. He was a talented athlete and a big sports fan, especially of baseball and his beloved Los Angeles Dodgers. We lost our friend Joey Hawkins many years ago, and now Danny. I'll think of them as finally together again, back on the same team. Play extra innings, boys. Play on.

The photo is from the spring of 1977. That's Danny on the right, and Joey goofing around (as always) on top of the drink machine.

Tammy & family, Very sorry for your loss. Danny was a nice gentle man. He always had a smile. He helped me a lot when I was working with abused animal rescue. You will be in my thoughts & prayers.

My heart is breaking. But I know, if given the choice, he would have chosen this way to leave this world. I cherish our friendship and will always remember you. RIP, buddy.

In remembrance to Danny. One of his favorite songs was Pink Floyd's "The Great Gig in the Sky".
Love to you, special friend.
