His love of boats and mechanics led him to work for a Mercury Outboard dealership after his retirement.

Danny’s love of history led him to join a military unit of reenactors. For 35 years, he marched, stood guard, reenacted battles, and increased his knowledge of the Revolutionary War. Danny was an encyclopedia of historical events. He was an avid hunter an enjoyed hunting and shooting with his sons and grandsons in his spare time. As a proud pop pop, he loved watching his grandsons play baseball and football.

Danny is survived by his wife of 51 years, Terry; son, Jared (Kathy) of Bishopville, MD; three grandsons, Cole, Bryce, and Brooks; and his sister. Danelle (Anthony) of Amsterdam, NY.

He is at peace now with the Lord. A new beginning, pain free.
