Danny was a man of indomitable spirit. He lived a big life, with a big heart and he had big fun. Much of that heart was reserved for his children and grandchildren -who he spoiled rotten. He loved his wife Robin and his family, and he loved the water. Whether he was using it to put out fires during his tenure as Captain of the Deep Run Fire Department, or while out on his boat trying to hook some trout or flounder, water was an ever-important throughline in the story of his life.
He was taken too early, but fortunately he didn’t let his illness slow him down too much, as he was still drag-racing cars until a few months ago.
He was loved and he will be missed.
Joseph B. Paul Jr. Funeral Service is honored to assist the Goff family.
