Those who knew Danny might describe him as funny, witty, and loving. While those adjectives would certainly be correct, they would not even scratch the surface of effectively delineating his character. Danny had an unrelenting devotion to his family.

Following his time in the service, Danny worked as a carpenter, building many of the homes and buildings that the Beaufort County community uses every day.
Danny was a member of Graceway Pentecostal Holiness Church. He loved his church family and always looked forward to attending. His life was as admirable as it was influential.
