Danny loved performing. (You might say he was a ham!) He had an amazing sense of humor. He loved playing practical jokes but often gave himself away with his
"Scooby Doo" snicker! He just couldn't contain that snicker! He was always the 1st one on a dance floor! Whether it be the dance floor at a wedding reception, an isle in a grocery store or at home..
Dan loved to dance! He was gifted with a huge heart for others and Dan loved to dance! He was gifted with a huge heart for others and often volunteered for various charities.
