Danny valued family above all in his life. He was most proud to be a father to his three children Aimee, Daniel and Tricia. He adored his three grandsons and loved taking them fishing on the bay. Being around them brought him much joy. Danny devoted his life to his family and was most happy when his house was full of his children and grandchildren. He would put on a big pot of his sauce with linguini and everyone would gather. Danny enjoyed the simple things in life. Whether it be good food, good music or sitting on the back of his boat “Sambuca.”
Danny lead by example. He was honest and true. His generosity knew no bounds. He was the kind of man that you could depend on no matter what. He was successful due to his sheer determination and work ethic. He showed us all the true meaning of unconditional love. He is someone to look up too and admire. He was truly a great man and will be missed by all.
