I went to Jr High and High school with Danny. I consider him one of my best friends from that time. Like others we lost touch over the years. I did get to see him a couple of years ago and was glad we got to catch up. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you
I was lucky enough to meet Danny at Topeka High. We fell into a small group of friends and started camping, water sking and just having fun. The years pasted and We really didn’t see each other much – enough. I went over to the house on Veterans day. We had a great conversation. I just wish we had become closer later in life. I miss the Chief
May God Bless you at this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. God Bless you.
George, Betty and Penny: I am so sorry for your loss. It is my loss too for Dan was a dear cousin. I am sorry that I can’t attend the funeral because of a doctor’s appointment.
George & Betty – I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Danny from the cabin at the ranch in Maple Hill. He was always such a nice guy. I still think of Mike so I can’t imagine what you’re going through. My thoughts are with you.
I worked with Danny in 1977 at the VA Hospital in Topeka. He had just gotten out of the service and he drove a jeep. I just remember he loved that jeep. He was always so fun to work with and so full of life. I had wondered what happened to him. I was so sorry to read about his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Although there are no words to ease the sorrow that is yours, thoughts and loving memories last as long as time endures. May your treasured memories grow more precious as time passes by and help to bring you comfort in the loss of one so dear. Please accept our condolenses and our heart felt prayers.
