    With many smiles I will remember the Friday and Saturday nights dancing to the Tunes spun by DJ’s “Uncle” Danny & Gary. Then the Sunday’s at Gary’s , with yard games and music or if rainy or cold ,inside for cards,dice and music. Was a great way to spend my early adulthood. Many good times together creating lifelong friends.

    Our Uncle our friend! So he loved to come into the bars and Clubs and maybe he was kind of demanding when it came to buying tickets. LOL but he meant no one any harm. He enjoyed the fun and interaction with everyone, He had a heart of gold and would have done anything for anyone. We had a lot of fun and will miss him for sure.
    love you Uncle Danny! RIP

  6. Your big sister (Mare) Marianne says:

    We will always remember Dan as our baby brother. We shared holidays, birthdays, weddings and many other occasions together. W e go our separate ways then are brought together again for a number of reasons. In Dan’s case it was his illness that confined him to a nursing home. we visited him daily until it was closed visitors. Then talked on the phone. Our biggest regret was that we could not be with him when he needed us the most. God bless you Dan may you rest in peace.

    • Your second sister (Care) Carolyn says:

      I always referred to Dan as my baby brother to, it was fun he didn’t seem to mind. We had fun as kids!!! Those are the days we were always together. The days I cherish most of us all!! Dan went into the hospital Oct 23 from their to nursing home right before Thanksgiving. My sister and I visited him daily until no visitors because of Virus. These last weeks when he needed us most to hold is hand and tell him we loved him, we were not able to comfort him. Love God Bless you Rest in peace.
