Danny was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and all things that involved a love of the outdoors. One of his greatest joys came from sharing those experiences with children, grandchildren and friends. A fierce competitor on the softball field, basketball court and golf course – Danny especially enjoyed the camaraderie of teamwork. Long after his days on the playing fields had ended, he passed on the competitive spirit and love of "the game" to his grandchildren as a steadfast fan and unofficial coach – regardless of their endeavors. PaPa was the number one fan of Adam, Noah, Lillie, Ann Elizabeth and Raelynn.
