“Many of you know him for his musical talents, dedication to the teaching profession, or loving husband, father, and grandfather, but I know him as Uncle Dan, my Godfather. The Uncle who inspired me to become a teacher and see life as a gift filled with daily blessings. He was always positive and his calming demeanor was always a source of comfort among the chaos of our vibrant family gatherings. He was kind, never passing judgement,and always seeking out the simple luxuries of the day. I know he joins our many family members who are eager to see him home. For those he leaves behind, you can rest assure he will always be looking out for you. Much love and sympathy to my aunt and cousins. ”

Sorrow and Joy
“To those of us who loved Danny, we will miss him. The good news is we know where he has gone. We will one day meet again. As a member of "The Del Rays", he was a great bandmate. He left his mark in this world: Husband, father, grandfather, musician friend to many. We have good memories to cherish. May God bless and keep his family and loved ones comforted at this time of grief. ”
