Danny attended Wells School in the mid 60's and early 70's then attended Noble Center in Indianapolis Indiana where he was loved by everyone.
Danny was always making new friends and one of his latest was Tucker the beautiful K/9 German Shepherd Police Dog from Watseka Il. When he could not go visit Tucker the wonderful Police Officers brought Tucker to Danny to visit. Danny has requested any donations go to Watseka Police Department to take care of Tucker or to donor's choice.
Our hearts are broken but it was time to let go so our very special brother could be in peace. Danny was always the most special one in the family and loved and admired the most by all of us. I'm sure he will be enjoying those Cubs with Sally and Dad, and Mom will be making them snacks telling them to not yell so loud.
Special thank you to our sister Monna and husband Jim for taking such good care of Danny. God Bless!! Also, a very special thank you to the wonderful group at Uplifted Care and Reggie.
