    Danny and his loved ones left behind, will be forever in our thoughts and prayers. Danny had so many friends who loved what he loved. Watching KU basketball, going to the St Patty’s Day parade in down town Lawrence, and just being around family and friends are only a few of the things that truly made him smile, and that smile will remain in our hearts and memories forever. RIP my friend until we meet again.

    One of the good ones, our Danny boy. Took my cousin Tina by the hand one day and, well – the rest is a fine history. Gracious and welcoming, you always felt included around him. I truly am struck by his passing.
    We all are.

    My heart is broken. Danny was one of my oldest friends. Met in grade school. I will always remember spending time with Danny and Tina before and after Chuck’s passing. May Danny and Chuck meet up in HEAVEN. Tina keep in touch. May GOD bless you and your WHOLE family. May He give you strength.

    Our time spent with Dan was when he was a young man but he was still much to young to go. Our hearts and prayers are with all the family. His Mother is a long time, very dear friend and we are sending her special prayers and all our love.

    Eddie, Judy, Tonya and Travis.

    Danny was one of the best people I’ve ever known. With Tina by his side, there was nothing they couldn’t do. I had the privilege of working with them both while I was the Administrative Assistant at the Facilities and Operations department for USD 497 from 2012 until 2015. In my 15 year career in public education, I’ve never loved a job more than that one; it had everything to do with the amazing people I worked with and Danny held one of the top spots on that list. Memories of our F&O barbecues or department gatherings down on Mass. St. after wok remain precious to me and, now more than ever, bring a smile to my face and comfort my heart. I will always remember Danny coming in after a long day to wait for Tina. It wouldn’t be long before the two of them would be drifting thru the door, usually heading to the VFW (especially if the Jayhawks were playing!). Danny was a man of few words; mostly because they were unnecessary… If he liked you, you knew it; likewise, if he didn’t, you knew it. I count myself fortunate to be among those he would share a smile and a laugh with. Knowing he has been called Home brings me more sadness than I can convey. Still, knowing I will see him again allows me to find joy within my grief. To Tina and his family, you’re in my thoughts and remain in my prayers. I can only imagine the void this has left in your lives. I know you each knew him in a way that many of us didn’t and there are special parts of his legacy that live on through you. My request to God is that He allows you to see glimmers of Danny each day, and that in those moments when you miss him the most, you feel the warmth of our Saviors love. Danny is not gone, only away. His love for each of you remains; no amount of time or distance will ever change that. Tina, you will ALWAYS be my friend. I love you more than you’ll ever know and I’m so thankful for the place you hold in my heart. Lawrence will always be my home and our crew from F&O will forever remain my family. My thoughts and love are with you, not just today, but always.

    With heart felt condolences and unwavering love, your friend,
