Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Ronnie and family: so sorry to learn of Dan’s passing. He was a good husband, father, attorney and good friend. And a very loyal ND fan. I remember his retirement party at Jeremiah’s. Good time as always. My condolences to all of you. In friendship, Debbie Indivino

  2. Danny sure knew how to enjoy life. His many talents included cooking a wonderful dinner to coaching soccer. He made sure we all knew about the great feats of his Notre Dame football team. He could remember plays from years ago. We are going to miss him. Rest well, my friend.

  3. So sorry on hearing of Dan’s passing. I knew him very well in our younger years playing Pop Warner football. He played for my uncle Tony Golino’s team and he was the scappiest running back ever! Also went 4yrs with him at AQ. He was the best!! Prayers go out to his family!!
