Goodbye Danny! You have enriched the world through your life. Loving husband, dedicated father, caring grandfather, caring ex-husband, uncle and friend. Veteran and construction worker. He loved the Cubs, golf, camping and especially fishing and anything outdoors. He was a hard worker and a hard player. He loved life and he lived life to the fullest. He had a hard life and a hard death. He found peace with himself in Alcoholics Anonymous. Sober for 32 years. Danny D … always the jokester and a fun-loving guy. Always willing to help out and was not afraid to get his hands dirty. Dan, we love you so much. We will always have a soft spot in our hearts for you.
