May God’s loving presence be with his family and close friends comforting them and giving them peace during this most difficult time. I know Danny has been received into his eternal home!

  6. Danny and I were good friends from our Cub Scout days and thru high school at Searcy. Danny was always very kind and gentle hearted.
    And I agree with our classmate and friend Jim Dalton, who said no doubt that Danny was an awesome husband, father and grandfather.
    Rest assured that Danny is now in the presence of our Heavenly Father and sees Jesus face-to-face!

    Amen & Hallelujah!
