I checked the Del.Co Obits sand saw that Danny had passed. We extend our sympathies to his family and friends. Tommy we would have attended his services had we known. Sadly Terry and Gus Krause

    I’ve known Danny for a long time. He was a great friend and was always up and happy even though he suffered quite a bit. Heaven has gained another good person. May he Rest In Peace.
