As a boy, Danny often helped his dad with various projects by “shining the light”. This is where his knowledge base for fixing things came from...his dad. Although he was a carpenter by trade, and had excellent skills in working with wood; he could fix anything. He often helped his beloved family and many friends in what their needs might be, and this attribute started at an early age from helping his parents with tasks such as surprising his mom by cleaning the kitchen for her. Danny was also a lover of music, and his family describes him as an excellent cook. Outside of cooking and fixing things, Danny was also an animal lover, and was referred to as the "Dog Whisperer" by family and friends for his ability to train any dog. He had many beloved pets over the years, but a few of them were extra special. These included, Zach, Sheba, Youngun, & old dog.
