Danny’s hobbies included hunting, fishing, gardening, and playing dominos. He also loved watching Drew Central Pirates Basketball, the Razorbacks, and the St. Louis Cardinals. He loved his family and if you had a minute or two or three or four, he loved to share his hunting stories with you, especially one of his many squirrel hunting stories. Danny seemed to always have a smile on his face and was known to some as “the fun Uncle” because he could make you laugh.
