Born April 27, 1949 in Clayhatchee, Alabama, Danny grew up in the local area, spending childhood years playing with beloved brothers and cousins who have many stories to share. Danny always loved being outdoors. Best times were spent playing in fields and rivers, hunting and fishing. Danny proudly served the United States Navy aboard the carrier USS Independence. After serving his country, Danny was hired in the telecommunications industry and worked for 40 years before retiring in 2016. In his spare time, Danny was always ingeniously working on projects whether it was for the home or making a gift for someone. He loved being resourceful, you could always find him in his shop. Danny had an uplifting spirit, full of laughter and smiles. Danny's children, Matthew and Allison, were welcomed into the world in the early 1980's. He was a devoted father. Since their childhood, whether it was cutting an apple after school, or sharing the recliner to watch the race, he cherished every moment with them. Danny found his soulmate, Kim Elizabeth Curry, 19 years ago. They began a journey of peace, love and laughter that centered on family. He was dedicated to raising and supporting five children, whether it was at the ball field, golf course, dance, cheer or church. Proudly watching graduations, weddings and grandchildren was his fulfillment. Danny's legacy was giving of himself.
