Danny was a Construction Engineer and the family lived in many locations during his career. He loved baseball and most other sports. At one time, he was the youngest umpire in the state of Florida at the age of 18 for little league.
He liked conversation and had some interesting stories to tell. He was always willing to sacrifice to meet the needs of his loved ones. Most of all he was the love of Judy’s life, a loving father and grandfather and an all-around good person.
