  1. I met Danny on a “short stay” in Delaware county back on Thanksgiving 2014. He went out of his way to keep me from jumping off the deep end. He took me under his wing, kept it straight with me and it meant the world to me. I’m so sorry to his family and friends that he’s gone. I only spent a few days with him but i thought the world of him. Rest in peace Danny, I’ll see you on the other side..

  2. My heart broke to hear this, I always thought the world of Danny. He was one of the first to reach out and make me feel welcome when I started a new school. Running into him over the years was always a pleasure, he was so genuine. May the Lord be with his family at this difficult time.

  7. On e again another good person taken way too soon. Danny was a good person and if you were his friend I truly believe there was nothing he wouldn’t do for you if he could. I could go on and on about stories about Danny and I. Danny I would sometimes call you just to hear your fast talking voice and it made me laugh every time cause I would say Danny slow down man what did you say. Anyway my prayers are with you with all his friends and family. This is another tough loss for everyone who knew him. RIP Danny I love and miss you bro
