You could always expect a cool wave of his hand while walking on the street in his color full jacket or vest that he had on.

He loved them dearly and would to anything for them. Upon Christmas time he loved decorating the yard with lights and other decorations. His love for life was strong. No matter what would come his way, he always over come it whole heartly. That was our Danny! He loved going for rides with family or friends. His favorite food was, you guessed it, Hamburgers. Boy did he love them! Danny will always be in our hearts, and his memory will always be cherished by us forever.
