Danny was a great friend to both of us for many years. We had many great times together and will always hold those memories close to our hearts. We will surely miss his laugh and wit. We extend our deepest sympathy to the family. Danny thanks for the memories.

Danny was a good friend and we had many good times many years ago. Even though we lost touch due to the distance between us, I fondly remembered his vibrant personality and caring attitude. RIP Danny.

I met Danny when I was 14 years old. He was a friend of my nephew Tom Myers. I was immediately in love with his engaging smile and his curly blonde hair. I haven't seen him in years. RIP Danny.
