Danny fought a courageous two year battle after an accident that left him quadriplegic. Throughout these past two years Danny remained positive and he often spoke about making every moment count and taking nothing for granted. Through it all he never lost hope or his great sense of humour. We’d like to extend a huge thank you for the endless thoughts and prayers sent since the accident from family, friends near and far, acquaintances, and strangers alike. The outpouring of love and support was greatly appreciated by both Danny and his whole family.
As a young boy growing up in Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada, Danny loved sports, swimming at the international train bridge and running the streets with his best friends Mark Noganosh, Al and Jay Doxtator, Troy Siena, Mike Kenny and Aaron Jones.
Over the years, from Canada to California, Danny made countless friends who became like family to him and whom he cared for deeply. He will always be remembered for having a huge heart, and everyone who met him loved him. He had a smile that could light up a room and a laugh so contagious you couldn’t help but be happy around him.
As an adult Danny moved back to California where he enjoyed being an avid golfer. His happiest times were surrounded by family and friends either on a golf course or at one of his favorite watering holes. He loved music and going to concerts, he was always ready to have fun, make great memories and bring along as many friends as he could.
Danny was a special man and will forever be missed by all his family, aunts, uncles, cousins and closest friends, especially Mark Noganosh, Darren Moses and Jimmy Lopez.
