My heart is filled with happy memories of Uncle Danny, here in Mahanoy City sitting at my mom and dads home with "his brother Sterling" sitting at the kitchen table Uncle Danny telling funny stories about baseball and dad telling jokes. I was a young girl at that time,I remember the room being filled with warm joyful times. It was an honer to have a Uncle with so much talent and knowlege to invent so many great things for baseball. Im sure your now with your mother and father and all you brothers and sister playing baseball again like it was back a lifetime ago in Ringtown, Pa. God bless you Uncle Danny and Aunt Pat and family. You will never be forgotten

Danny enriched all the lives of us here at the Hampton with his generous sharing of baseball stories. I followed his career all the way from 1941, he was and still is my baseball hero. I am delighted and honored that Pat has asked me to participate in his Memorial. Danny has now gone to the real "biggies" and I am sure the Great Skipper welcomed him. We will truly miss him---our love, to you Pat, Dan, and all the family. Harry and Shirley.

I had the good fortune to be the sports editor of the FSU student newspaper, "The Flambeau from 1958-60 and also to work in the sports information office under the legendary SID Pat Hogan. During that time I covered the FSU baseball team and traveled with it on those long bus rides. Danny Litwhiler took me under his wing providing me with information while teaching me baseball. They toss around terms like "Good Guy", but Danny really personified that term. He was not only a teacher of baseball, but a teacher of men. At FSU he led great players like Dick Howser, Frank Slusser and Ron Fraser. I always remember him talking getting the field ready after some rain with his "Diamond Grit". If I remember correctly, he made the all-time college baseball team at one time. He was truly one of a kind. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to Pat and to the family.

Frank Ramos, FSU class of 1960
