Danny, always thought world of you, always will! They don't make them like you anymore! Heaven celebrates you coming home and we WILL see you one day, never to part again. You left a legacy of love and service, that will keep you with us. Thank you for all you taught me, for always having my "6". After all, I wouldn't have baked just anybody a German Chocolate cake, slip on ice, sliding under a car, and not drop the cake! Will NEVER forget you rescuing the cake, then helping me out from under the car. Your hearty laugh and dynamite sense of humor, made you easy to love brother. Prayers and love to your beautiful family.

He gave his unit friendship and brotherhood and his soldiers became that reflection. Still taking care of soldiers even in death what a tribute to the man he had become

Danny was one of the good guys - a true friend one could count on in good times and bad. He is gone too soon and will be sorely missed. Rest in sweet peace, friend.
