Danny was an amazing person and whenever you were down, he'd come over with a smile on his face and pick you right up

I will not be in town Sunday for the services for Danny. If I were in town I would be there. He was a special young man that on occasion would stop at our house after a school event and I would enjoy talking to him as I would give him a ride home. He was always too shy to ask but I enjoyed volunteering because he was a breath of fresh air. The last time I saw Danny was last year at the fundraising golf event at Rooster Run. He came by in his motor scooter and gave me a word of encouragement regarding the Mayor;s race. He was a special young man. I am truly sorry for the pain he and has family have endured for the past year. I will miss his smile and kind words. Sincerely, David Glass
