CandleWe are so sorry to hear about the loss of Danny! He was a great man and thought the world of his daughter, he was always excited to tell us about her accomplishments. Many of the members enjoyed getting a laugh in with Danny. He will be missed!

CandleHard to believe Danny is gone at such a young age. Danny sat across from me in History class and would always be telling some joke or story. He was such a great guy. My thoughts and prayers in this difficult time to Danny's family. RIP

Rick and I have known Danny for most of our years living in Hampton...from selling Christmas trees to being the kind and considerate Senior Bus Driver to being one of the best SANTAS, he wore a smile for everyone. We will miss his charm and larger than life personality. Our deep condolances to all his family!
