    Our hearts go out to all of Danny’s family.
    When I told Amanda of his passing she said the first thing that came to her mind was Danny taking her and Harley in to see his snakes and spider.
    Danny was a sweet and caring young man.
    He’s out of pain now. Someday we will all be with our loved ones.

    Brenda No Words can describe how you feel right now but always know Danny was a fantastic young man . He was always lending a big grin to someone and his heart was always ready to jump in and help someone out . I’m sure he is fishing with someone upstairs and laughing and having a good time. Send you deepest sympathies to you Brenda and family .

    Brenda, John, brothers, aunts and uncles:

    I am so sorry for your loss. Danny was such a special young man. He judged no one and was a friend if someone needed a friend.
    Bryce and Danny enjoyed each others company while fishing and hunting.

    My little great grand-daughter called me with the news as both of the girls knew Danny from hunting, fishing and haircuts.

    My thoughts and prayers will be all of you!

    Brenda, I’m so very sorry to hear of Danny’s passing. Prayers for comfort at this difficult time. It’s difficult to do, but remember he is no longer suffering and is at peace in a beautiful place. Hugs to you my friend.

  • Butch and Delice Hill

    Danny was a great friend, and I enjoyed his company. He always played tricks on me with fake skunks’, snakes, and spiders. We shared so many stories together on the fish bank and hunting and even two trips to Las Vegas together. He always teased me about falling asleep while I was supposed to be hunting. You will be totally missed by me. Take care my friend and don’t catch all the fish save some for me.

  • Kathy Best

    Words cannot express how deeply sorry I am for your loss. Danny was a very special young man in mine and Rollins life. I have so many wonderful memories of Danny, talking coin collecting to fishing and hunting and everything in between. He got me a little dish with baby elephants on it and it says “ Friendship is not a big thing. It’s a million little things”. I will always remember him and smile.
