    Danny we are going to miss you so much it is very hard for me to go upstairs and have to walk pass your door to go to my room and not start to cry. W love you very much and you will always be with us. We are thinking of you all the time and asking why. Love Mom and Phil.

  9. Josh on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Danny, saying thank you does not seem like enough for everything you did for my family. I cannot express what it meant to me having you as a 2nd father and as a friend. You taught me more than you’ll ever know. I’ve always promised you that I will take care of your little girl and rest assured I will not let you down. You will always be here with us.

  11. Donna McChesney on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    I didn’t know Danny but I’m very good friends to Mary and Phil and my deepest sympathy’s go out to them with much love. It is so hard losing a child. I love you very much Mary and Phil.

  12. Patti on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    I met Danny at 15 and then spent over twenty-five years of my life with a man who had a heart made of gold. At first we were friends and we had the gift of growing-up together. From Learners Permits to Drivers License, to first cars, first jobs, first apartment, and first house. He gave me three wonderful children that we raised together. He was a great father and dearly loved his family. He was a hard working man who at times worked sun-up to sun-down to give us everything he could. There are so many memories of all the years we spent together and the happy times with family and friends. I can not fill your shoes, but I will look over Chrissy, Rick, and Mike and be there for them. They are saddened by your early departure. Your work here was not done…everyone still needed you to use ‘your hammer’ and skill to complete all the projects you had planned. And.. thanks for teaching me how to fix cars, fix the plumbing, the furnace, how to put a roof on, and side a house. I just couldn’t fix a broken heart. You are going to be missed by all those whose lives you touched.

    I will always remember Dan and his love for his children, he was a devoted hard working man that loved all his family and friends. I am sorry for you loss of such a good person. love to all, Kory Farmer

    I will always remember the time spent growing up with Danny and his family. It was always going to be a fun weekend when Danny, Patti and the kids were coming over or we were going over to their house. Dad and Danny would get together and do projects around the house. These usally turned into all day events. Remeber the light switch in the stairwell. I remember his black truck and the engines he put in because he didn’t change the oil. Danny is a great father. I know my sister and I were always treated like one of his kids. Rest in Peace Danny. You will always be with us. I look forward to hearing that laugh again someday. Patti, Chrissy, Rick, and Mike with much love I am very sorry for your loss.

    I will remember Danny as a tall skinny guy with cut off jean shorts and a smile on his face. He always had time to play flag football with us or watch the magic show or plays all us kids thought up. I will always remember his laughter during the late night card games played with my parents. My favorite ‘family’ holiday get togethers were with the Masons from Halloween to News Years. Danny, the big kid always made the party. You will be missed!

  16. Genny Johnson (McAfee) on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    I’ve known Danny since I was 16 yrs. old. There are many, many years of memories that I will always treasure. To this day, when ever I hear the song Benny and the Jets. I immediately think of Danny because he always called me Benny and the jets instead of Genny. Now when I hear that song it will bring tears to my eyes, It will also remind me of the good times with Danny, always smiling and laughing. Danny will be forever in my heart. Danny has 3 wonderful children that he adored and was very proud of. Danny will be sorely missed. Our prayers and thoughts go out to all his family. With Sincere love, Genny & John I wrote this today while I was at work thinking about Danny. If only I could If only I could have one more look at your face, one more time to see your smile, one more time to hear your laughter. If only I could

  20. Tina on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Uncle Danny, I am so glad that I got to see you in August at Brandi’s wedding. I was proud to say that you were my uncle and still am! I love you, and R.I.P. Mike, Tina, Rena and Krysta

  21. Sharon Belli on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Uncle Phil and Aunt Mary and Family, I must say this was a shock! There are never enough words comfort when something like this happens to any of us and our family and friends. I will never forget when his Aunt Dorothy expired how great and loving my cousin and was right there for me.Even though I am still so far away and have lost touch with all of you I never forgot any of you. My prayer is that you cosin Danny are in a better place shinning and looking over all of us. God bless you and rst in peace. I wish you could have visited Alaska.

  22. Sue Curtice on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    We started out as neighbors and soon became family. I remember those days as some of the happiest of my life. If you ‘kids’ were not at one house, you were at the other. I can picture Danny up on our roof and the kids being so happy to watch ‘Daddy at work.’ No matter the time nor distance you will always be in my heart and I will always be there for you. I love you all. My deepest sympathy to all of the family. Danny was with us for far too short a time, but his memory will live in our hearts forever.
