A very admired Oklahoman--3 D Danny
Thank you Danny Williams for the wonderful memories of talk,music,good times and laughter you provided me growing up.
Danny Williams has been a part of the lives of Oklahomans for decades. He brought much enjoyment to my family each Saturday night hosting Championship Wrestling with Leroy McGuirk. My siblings and I were at those matches vicariously watching the likes of Bolo, Oni Wiki Wiki, Cowboy Bill Watts, Irish Mike Clancy and Haystacks Calhoun.
Then in the 60's, Mr. Williams was the voice associated with the best music ever - reaching out to bring some diversion to the war around us. Later, his humor greeted commuters and made our mornings a little brighter as we traveled to work each weekday. Thank you Mr. Williams for touching the lives of your fellow Oklahomans in so many ways for so many years. You live on in our memories.
I will never forget 3D Danny--my favorite after school hero. We always rushed home just to watch him and Bazark on Channel 4. Everyone loved him, I miss him just thinking about it. He made growing up easier. Won't ever forget you!
Thanks to Dr. Jim Little for being at my side during the service and a major longtime friend, significant beloved brother Rudy & Lori Jimenez, Paris Limo, Ralph Tyler, Tyler Media, the very excellent Trochta's, awesome, big-hearted Marc Heitz, forever favorite longtime friend, Joan Gilmore, talented, loyal longtime friend, Johnny Shannon, thoughtful, knowledgeable, dear friend, David Stell, wise & witty, long-longtime friend, Duffy Martin, generous & talented Bill & Billie Thrash, major caring and oh so capable friends Dr. Jim & Linda Lowe and again, deep gratitude to more than space or time allows.
May try to get these in one more memorial for Monday. Peace and blessings to each & all, Maureen
Just a few more names to add please...one for now - Sheriff John Whetzel was absolutely major that Sunday of Danny's service! He was my first phone call when the news came out - then he and is fellow officers took excellent professional care of traffic and all-encompassing activities for the procession to maneuver securely and proudly from beginning to end.
THANK YOU Sheriff John!!and you know your friend, Danny is eternally grateful, as well! He had a lot of love & respect for you! Blessings to you & Mitzi, Maureen
i met danny on foreman scotty as a child.
he was a true oklahoman
Will never forget when Danny Williams, with a team of his associates came to Covington, OK Gym to play basketball against a team of moms. Needless to say Danny was quite a clown and the audience was hysterical. Everyone knew Danny and his abiity to entertain.
I used to wake up to Danny playing "Lay Down Sally". He was great. Always maked me feel good. And his TV show was always wonderful. Barbara Quigley
Remembering Danny Loved to Entertain You!
Always enjoyed stopping by KOMA to see Danny & everyone. He enjoyed it whenever I brought by Keebler Cookies & Crackers and was like a kid in a candy store. I enjoyed sitting in on his show and drinking coffee with him. He always said "Today is my Birthday. I love you...pass it on!"
The world of music is sadder without you.
Dear Williams Familly,
My deepest sympathy to you and your loved ones for his passing. I was born in Oklahoma City in 1959. I lived there for 8 years until my father was transferred to Dallas by Ford motor Co. in 1968. I allways loved Satuday Night Wrestling on Ch. 4 and the way he ended it with "Look out for flying chairs". My mother passed away this passed April. She was born in Chickasha and my father passed away in 1992. He was born in Mustang. I will allways have a fondness in my heart for my fellow Oklahomans who entertained me as a child and will forever remain a beautiful memory in my heart.
Thank you for stopping by. Just two more days of anniversary memorials.
Blessings to you and yours,
Fond memories as a youngster growing up in OKC of 3 D Danny. He leaves a lot of fans with the best of memories of him and his entertaining personalities. RIP
Daddy, Lots of people will remember you for all your exceptional work in radio and television. Which is quite a legacy. But I remember you as a dad who seemed to draw people to him, (like moths drawn to flame.) And that was fun. I'll always remember that high wattage smile and outgoing personality. Love you dad and miss you!
EVERONE MISSDANNY SOMUCH.PATSY EVINS
RIP Danny , You have come into my home since I was a child . I got to meet you in person when I was 10 and that was the highlight of my life .
Heaven just received another Angel
The online message should have read:
When you remember Danny, remember he loves you – wants you to love one another…to pass it on! He said everybody is doing the best they can – you cannot control what people think or say – just do the best you can & give it to God.
Now Danny is with the Highest Love – he will always love you. Thanks for passing it on Danny!
He was one heck of an entertainer and disk jockey. He provided so much enjoyment just to listen to him. Guys like him come along once in a lifetime. He definitely is missed by more people than you can imagine.
We will ALWAYS miss Danny. I still think of him often - actually, every time I turn on the radio....... Blessings to you Maurine.
look out for flying chairs.danny the best
I went to grade school with you at Linwood. My name then was Barbara Joyce. I knew that you and Danny had married some years ago and then read of his passing last year. So sorry for your loss. I have been there, but please know that time is a great healer. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Hope you are well. Love,
Today is my Birthday. I love you...pass it on!
Danny is and will always be part of my childhood memories....coming home from school and watching Forman Scotty and seeing Willie the Prospector in the cave....and all the years on listening to him on the radio!!!...Rest in peace dear Danny!!! My sympathies are with you Mrs. Williams....
Live long and prosper, Danny.
Today, and every day is Danny's Day.
Danny Williams: "Watch out for flying chairs". over 50 years old and still good advice. Thank You for the memories Danny and concolences to his family.
I never heard Danny say a bad word, then one day he was talking about Oklahoma city public schools never closing, the next day he said well people hell has froze over Oklahoma city public schools has closed because of snow. I will always remember that I love ya pass it on
Whoever it was that once said "Good and great are seldom the same man" never met Danny Williams. Anyone fortunate enough to have met him used his personality as a mental touchstone for decency and humility forever after.
About fifty years ago Danny had Roger Miller on his show as a live guest. Roger left to go to the airport, but returned to Danny's show about an hour later. Danny asked him, "Miss your plane?" Roger replied, "I sure do." Danny laughed so hard he had to play a record to regain his composure.
Always a joy to listen to you,
Love you bunches...RIP
Your faithful fan...
I met Danny in 1979, at the Arts Festival. (Danny's Day) You are a fun guy and I am proud that you kept your faith the whole life. Love Ceci
I had the great pleasure of first meeting Danny in 1992, when I asked if my 8 year-old daughter could watch him work. Danny was very kind and welcoming. I got to know him over the years. He loved life, and I know he especially loved Maureen. He loved people and wanted them to have fun along with him.
I grew up with Danny in the 50's. Loved him as DDD. Met him at the Buster Brown Shoe Store in Midwest City when he was all dressed up as DDD. My mother encouraged me to go say hi to him. When he put me on his lap and talked to me I was so thrilled.
He's traveling East, toward the light. Loved him always.
Danny read advertisments for our Dealerships for many many years....he was a very special friend and he will be missed dearly. When Danny believed in you or your products/services, he had an ability to tell people in a way that they could feel the love and appreciation over the airwaves....I hope wherever he is now, he can still feel mine through those same airwaves!!
Love you Danny and Maureen and Boo
Danny was one of my favorite news broadcasters. May he rest in peace. My prayers go out to his family, friends and fans.
Danny was part of our lives for many years. He will be missed. God bless his family during this time.
We loved him always love him. what you saw is what he was a kind loving man who loved everyone. no words can articulate our feelings of respect and admirarion for him and what he meant to the world. Thanks for sharing your dad with us.
Your parents lived nearby when we were teenagers and we became the baby sitters for Suzanne and Shelley. When the twins were born, Marilyn called and invited us to the hospital to see the babies. It was after visiting hours so Danny told the nurse we were his sisters and we were allowed to see them. Marilyn and Danny were wonderful friends and we have many happy memories of them and their little girls. Our thoughts are with you at this sad time.
Was just thinking of Danny Williams and telling a friend about him and when I googled him found he had died. I went to school with Suzanne, his twin daughters were my younger sisters age, also Wilson Hursts kids, back in the 60's at John Marshall. We used to go to WKY television and see them. I remember waking up to Danny Williams on the radio, coming home from school to Danny Williams on t.v. My sister,Jeanie, sang on his daytime "Danny's Day" talk show. A harder working and more dedicated man could not be found. He brought lots of laughs and humor to every thing he did., I think of what they said every morning back in the early 2000's. "Mr. William's has left the building." I am sure he is busy on the other side. God bless his family....he is fine!
Best DJ ever. I am 66 years old and grew up watching and listening to Danny. Danny was funny, sensitive, soft hearted. You were proud to be an Oklahoman, American and proud of your Native American, Yachi, heritage. In recent years, always listened to your morning show going to work. Then we both retired. Love you Danny. You will be missed.
Danny will be missed tremendously by all who knew him and had him in their lives over the many years of radio and tv. I grew up listening to him on radio for hours on end and loved him very much. Rest in peace Danny, we all love you. Cathy
My Heart thoughts and prayers are with the Williams Family..Danny K Is a shinning star
I remember watching Dannysday right before the noon news on 4 and listening to Danny on KOMA and I can say that the radio and television world here locally will not be the same without ya, 3D!! God bless and my condolences to you, Maureen and family
I as many Oklahomans, I grew up watching Danny with Forman Scotty, Wrestling, Dannys day and listing to KOMA/WKY. Truly a man everyone could love and he will be missed. My condolence to the family. Connie Russell
Thanks for letting me on Dannys Day to tell about my Pea sheller...You were the best.Your were a hero to my children and My Dad thought the best of you....Good Bye
My heart goes out to the Williams family.
Danny was one of a kind and will be missed by everyone who grew up seeing him on TV and hearing his unmistakable voice on the radio.
Rest in Peace, Danny. Job well done.
What an icon for Oklahoma. We will miss this man tremendously. He was such a part of Oklahoma and our lives for many years.
I was Danny's golf caddy in Chickasha one summer. I had a great time and looked forward to him coming each week. He is a radio and tv legend but most of all, a great person.
God bless his family
I was a fan of yours growing up. Watched you every chance I could. RIP Danny.
I remember Danny and all the WKY radio disc jockey's when they came to Norman High School in 1959 along with James Garner great memories Danny was one of a kind RIP Danny.
RIP Danny Williams. You were a part of life from the get-go. Because of you the world is a better place. Condolences to all.
DANNY I want to say thanks for the good memories, I grew up watching you on TV and hearing your happy voice on radio, as did many. RIP you have earned it. To his family, THANK YOU for sharing such an outstanding person. We all loved him.
I salute you Danny. May God rest your soul.
3 D Danny was a huge part of my childhood and as the years rolled on, he continued to be a part of my life through radio. They don't make em' like Danny Williams these days. I was most fortunate that he influenced my life for the better. May God bless and pass it on.
Over the years Danny always gave me the best interviews, I ever had on his show. (UFO interviews) It was my pleasure to have worked with such a visionary icon. My prayers are with you, Maureen, May God Be With You always. Looking forward to reading his biography of his many years on TV and Radio. RIP 3D Danny.
My little girl was on his show as baby of the day 40 years ago,He was a very nice man,I also watched him on tv when I was small, We oklahomans will miss him.
What a true Oklahoma treasure Danny Williams was and always will be. May his family find peace knowing that all Oklahomans that grew up with Danny Williams loved him dearly. He made us smile! Hugs and Blessings! <3
there is an old verse in a song where have all the flowers gone. My question is where have all the good DJ's gone. Well we know where one has gone to be with the Lord. Danny was a class act in Radio and Tv anything they threw at him he could do and enjoyed it. From Kids shows day time shows or sports he could do. A man of many talents and a real entertainer I use to listen to Danny on radio and watched him on 3d Danny in the early fiftys. A true Gentleman and great person of everone Rip Mr williams you will not be forgotten. My condolences to Marueen and the girls we love this family of OKLa
It was a pleasure growing up watching and listening to Danny. I had the pleasure of appearing on his show "Dannysday" twice in the winter of 1979. I was a member of the OKC Junior Dance Team and Danny was always pleasant, kind and cheerful to be around. It was truly a bright time in my day every morning listening to him on the radio on all stations he was heard WKY, KEBC and of course KOMA. He was truly an Oklahoma treasure that will be missed and can never be replaced. Rest In Peace Danny and know that we will always remember that you were traveling east and "We love you" pass it on
Sorry Danny is gone. He was such an uplifting person. My husband enjoyed hunting with him and helping he and Maureen with their trail riding horses. He apparantly inspired a lot of people.
I moved to Oklahoma City in 1957, went to Millwood Elementary School. That fall I joined the "Happy Bluebirds" and we were on the Foreman Scotty Show with 3D Danny. I tried real hard to win the lucky horsshoe, but Carol won it. In my teens, I also listened to Danny on WKY and watched Dannny's Dad. Danny, along with Mary Hart, had so many interesting guests and book reviews. I can remember him saying one time on the radio, ladies, it's time to hitch up your hose and powder your nose, when I was getting ready for work. He brightened my life for many years. My deepest sympathy to Maureen and all the Williams Famly.
stared watching him on the old Forman Scott show and every since. RIP Danny
My goodness, I honestly thought this day would never happen. What a hard working man he was. He worked wky 930 'til 9, Danny's day at noon, the kids shows in the afternoon and mc'ed everything from supermarket openings to boat shows on the weekends. Met him twice once at early morning auto accident. He simply told the other person involved in the week. "If you know who I am, then you know where I must be in 15 minutes. Even with the highten emotions of a car wreck he never lost his composure or manners. The other person envolved simply said, we meet later at wky and settle up. The other time at his daughter's (forget which twin it was)house when I was a carpenter. He was very nice. He was a good man, loved his family and the Lord. Can do better than that.
Danny, God bless and watch out for flying chairs!
thank you for being such a great friend to my dad...we will miss your laugh and charm...
DANNY WAS AND STILL IS A SUPERFANTASTIC

You made the world a better place.
Danny provided me with some of the very best memories from my childhood - from growing up to listening to him on WKY radio with my Mother, to the time that my Mom drove us to the 'big city' from our small hometown for my brother to appear on 'Danny's Day'. Thanks for the memories Danny! May you rest in peace.
I remember watching Danny's day with my mother when I was around 6 years old. RIP Danny.
Mo, you're in our hearts and prayers, Gene and Jo McFadden
I grew up watching and listening to Danny Williams who was a great showman, entertainer and broadcaster. Certainly he was a media giant in Oklahoma City and much of the state. I watched him on our little black and white TV play 3-D Danny and all the rest of his many clever characters. I watched him MC Saturday night wrestling and laughed as he was threatened by all the mean nasty wrestlers. His facial expressions were masterful as he cowered behind his microphone. He always closed the broadcast with “watch out for flying chairs”. I attended dances in high school when he was the MC and DJ. My favorite Danny story is when he came south of the river to CHHS for some school program. He told us that if kids from North West Classen stole hubcaps they slapped them on the hands and if kids from Putnam City stole hubcaps they bought them cars to match. On the other hand if kids from Capitol Hill stole hubcaps they gave them three years in the electric chair. Needless to say he brought down the house. I bet he would remember my story and laugh with me if he could. Thanks for the memories Danny and rest in peace.
Danny, you are a legacy "never to be forgotten. I have been a fan of your from the time of my childhood years. Your laughter and joy you brought to us all throughout the years from your Danny's Day television show on Channel 4, and your radio show at WKY and much more, brought soooooo much joy and laughter to our hearts. We always looked soooooo very forward to hearing your jokes from that distintive voice of yours. You are an entertainer who will be remembered as a tremendous legendary legacy who will definetly live on from here there after and "forever. You will "never be forgotten. You brought laughter, joy, to us "all from your Blessed God gifted talents. Thank you for sharing your jokes and stories with all of us. Now you can share it with "all those in Heaven. There is "always room from a smiling face such as yours to pass a smile to another face. You with that personality of yours connected with everyone around you like a maginet. I always looked forward to hearing you close your show with your special words of ..."God Bless You...I Love You...Pass it on. All of us in your audience applauds you for sharing your god gifted personality with us. My sincere condolences go out to the Williams family.
I knew Danny ever since I can remember, it seems like I have known him for a very long time!First time I meet Danny we went on a school trip,went to the TV sation, he was out side getting ready to go in to do his show! listen to him every morning on the radio until he retired! Miss you already love you! God Bess your Family
Condolences and best wishes to Maureen and all who knew him far better than I.

I met Danny when my late husband, Jackson Kane, worked weekends at KOMA. Quite a gentleman. Blessings. Gini Kane
I grew up in Midwest City OK. Watching Danny Williams on the tv everyday then always listening to KOMA. He is a great icon and greatly repected. Truly missed by all! RIP
THANK YOU for the wonderful memories. Oklahoma will never forget your kindness, big heart and wonderful voice! Rest in Peace and my thought are with your family.
RIP Thank you for the memories
I cannot believe Danny is gone. But, certainly not ever forgotten. When I was about 4 or 5 years old (I am now 64) my parents took me to WKY on Britton Road late one night because I had begged them for so long to let me meet Three D Danny. I'll never forget Danny sitting me on his lap and talking to me. And I have so many fond memories of listening to Danny when he was a DJ on KOMA. He was always so funny. Danny, you will be SO missed by so many folks. I love you - pass it on.
thanks for making are lifes brighter! Remembering Danny.
I enjoyed performing on your television show 2 times in my youth. You were great to talk to and you kept the details of one small girl from one meeting one year until another meeting 2 years later. Amazing. You were a great radio host too and your jokes and stories really made my day. I've missed you since you retired and am grateful you are at peace. Thanks for all you did.
Thank you for providing joy throughout the years!
Listened and loved your show from my teens thru my 20's, 30's and 40's. Prayers to the Williams family. Love Ya Pass it ON :)
Thanks for the good memories & all the laughter you gave us all. A job well done Danny! We love you, pass it on...
It always made my day when he would sign off the radio and say, "God bless you.....I love you....pass it on".
We loved you Danny.
Danny you will be greatly missed.I think these were your words, "Love ya pass it on" !
As a young boy I remember hanging out at the Williams home in Stonegate to visit with “Willie” as he came home from work. He was just a friendly with the neighborhood kids as he was with his Foreman Scotty kids.
My condolences to the Williams girls.
''I REMEMBER DANNY.LOTS OF GOOD MEMORIES. A CLASS ACT WITH MARY HART.'' HE WAS FRIENDS WITH MY DAD ''BIG JIM RAGLAND.'' JAMES.....
Many prayers for the family, relatives, friends and fans. I was saddened to hear the news but I am also happy that you are with the Lord and entertaining everyone in Heaven. I will miss your unmistakable voice...
I grew up listening to Danny from the time I started school. I am now 59 and we were all blessed with Danny. I also won the golden horseshoe when I was a kid on the Forman Scotty Show. This world was a better place with you in it. God bless You.
My Very Best To Mr. Danny Williams' Family At This Time. And To Mr. Williams Up Above,We All Love Ya,Please Pass It On Up Above To Our Other Legendary Friends Ho-Ho & Foreman Scotty! God Bless You!
Now you can make God and the Angels smile and laugh just like you did here on earth.Rest in Peace.
When I was a child growing up in Shawnee I was obsessed with the Foreman Scotty show. I had a huge crush on Danny. When I was a teen I had a transistor radio glued to my ear whenever possible to listen to Danny. Then Danny's Day. He was a terrific entertainer with a tremendous personality. What a great representative of Oklahoma. I just adored him. Goodnight, sweet prince. May angels sing thee to thy rest.
Thanks for all the great memories Danny. You'll be greatly missed.
I am at a loss for words to say how sad I am that our great Danny Williams has left us in his human form. But he will always be in our hearts. Please go with God, Danny. May you always bring laughter and joy to everyone around you. My childhood was certainly impacted by the smile you brought into my living room every weekday afternoon. Rest in peace now. You have so earned it.
DANNY MY FRIEND & FELLOW D.J. WE WILL VERY MUCH MISS YOU AND YOUR HUMOR, LAUGH AND GREAT PERSONALITY. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES. YOU ARE NOW GONE BUT YOU WILL NOT FORGOTTEN. REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND. JOHN YORK KIOO F.M.
Danny was the first Captain Kirk.....What a life and what an great actor and person. You made Oklahoma proud.
Some of my greatest childhood memories are when my uncle would take me and my cousins to WKY-Channel 4 and we all would be on the Foreman Scotty Show with the "Magic Lasso." He would also take us to Channel 4 to be in the audience of "Championship Wrestling" and we would all cheer so enthusiastically when the Awesome Danny Hodge would wrestle. How we loved listening to Danny Williams speak the famous phase,"and watch out for flying chairs" at the end of every wrestling show. Rest in Peace "3-D Danny" and Thanks for all of the Happiness and Joy you brought to everyone who watched your TV, listened to you on the radio or met you in person. You will be Greatly Missed!
Although we never met in person, I feel like we are old friends. You were a inspiration to everyone who saw or heard you. Thanks for the memories, you will be missed by all.
My condolences and prayers to the Williams family. If you lived in OKC you knew Danny Williams. He provided so much laughter and comfort to all.
Gary White and Family
I wouldn't have gotten up and ready for high school without Donny's morning radio show I listened every day. My oldest daughter, Tammy was the child a Dannysday from the State Fair. I have nothing but wonderful memories of Danny. He will truly be missed, but I know he is making all the Angels smile in Heaven.
Danny was part of all our childhoods from the 50's. He was a character.
Watched 3D Danny and listening to him on the radio. He came to Hinton and Geary to the "soc hops" when I was a teenager.
Danny, You gave happiness to others and you brought laughter to us all. I grew up listening to you on the radio. I met you on Danny's Day when I was a guest entertainer,and you made me feel comfortable and ready to play my song for the viewers . My prayers go out to your family and friends. "Goodnight and watch out for flying chairs"!!!
Danny, my mother watched you on TV and loved you and your program. This was in the early '50's.
I never met Danny, but I feel as if I've known him all my life.
He entertained us(me)from very early, and into my 50's.
Awarded us with many great memories.
God Bless the family and friends.
We had the pleasure of visiting with Danny just a few years ago. He provided great entertainment during our teen years. In my opinion, he was a fine ambassador for the state of Oklahoma. Once you met Danny, you were a friend for life. He was a solid professional and serves as a great role model for all entering the industry. Thank you to his family for sharing this great individual.
I remember being in the 1st grade at Moore, and we lived right by KOMA and when we tried to play our record player you could hear Danny Williams on the radio. I followed him my whole life always listening to the Breakfast Flakes and I so remember him doing his show at Sherlocks with Mary Hart and he actually got on the dance floor and did the Gator it was too funny. RIP Danny you made me laugh for 54 years.
Such a great man. Thank you "3 D Danny" for the many years of laughs you provided us. You are now a bright star up there with God.
Shevaun, you have my warmest thoughts.
My twin sister and I were on the Forman Scotty show with Danny Williams on our birthday, very exciting for that age. 3D Danny wow. The radio here in Oklahoma will never be the same. RIP Danny and thoughts and prayers for all his family and friends.
I liked listening to Danny all those years from the late 60's until his years when I got the chance on KOMA in the morning. A wonderful man and great broadcaster. I still look out for "Flying Chairs" God bless him and those who knew him.
Thanks, Danny, for entertaining us through the years. You were the voice that we knew as a "familiar friend" even though we never met. Thanks for being a part of our past that we fondly remember. I would bet you are already set up in the studio announcing the arrivals & events on the other side. Godspeed old friend and God be with your family.
Danny has a special place in my heart. He entertained me from my radio from the time I was a child until late into my adult years. I had the honor of dealing with him my workplace. Danny always made me laugh. Thank you for playing "Sarah, Smile" for me on the radio, Danny. I'll miss you.
I first met Danny on the Foreman Scotty Show when I was 4, and he has been a part of my life in one way or another ever since. I watched him on t.v. and listened to him on the radio. I won a prize from KOMA a few years back, and when I went to pick it up at the station he was in the lobby. He greeted me like I was family. Such a kind man with a sparkling personality. Danny, you will be sorely missed by many. Godspeed to you.
Growing up in the 60s in Pauls Valley, there was one constant source of news and entertainment...Danny Williams on WKY. As a child Danny entertained me and my friends as Xavier T. Willard on the Forman Scotty Show. When WKY brought the mobile studio to Pauls Valley the whole town turned out and Danny charmed them all. When I got my first radio job at the local station I had one goal...to work at WKY. In the late 70s I did just that and encountered Danny several times. Again he never failed to make you feel like you were the most important person in the room. Thanks Danny for a lifetime of entertainment and laughs.
As a young broadcasting student, I, along with my classmates, had the pleasure of touring WKY with Danny as our tour guide. At that time, one of his catch phrases was, "Today's my birthday." Even though I was a little shy, I asked him when his REAL birthday was. He jokingly responded, "I'll tell you for a kiss." I'm sure he never thought, in a million years, this shy little girl would kiss him, because, when I did, he seemed speechless. RIP, Danny.
I spent my teen years listening to Danny on WKY radio. Loved his school lunch menus. Always funny, always entertaining. He left a legacy which will endure for many years to come, especially with Oklahomans. All these years later, I remember Danny, BC Clark's Anniversary sale jingle, and Jude and Jody on television. Rest in peace, Danny!
I grew up with Danny on Foreman Scott and my family regularly watched Dannysday, almost daily, in fact. Went to an in studio broadcast once and always to live broadcasts at the state fair. He truly feels like family, and was very close in age to my late dad. Be well on the other side, Danny Williams! You were so funny, too!
I can't hardly remember a time when Danny wasn't part of Oklahoma City TV, and Radio. As a kid, I watched 3-D Danny, and was even on The Knot Hole Gang. He will be missed by all of us who grew up here.
our prayer's are with your family.
A great Oklahoma Icon is gone. "We love you. Pass it on."
Danny was a true Oklahoma broadcast legend and I have had the privilege to have known him for most of my life. My father Chris Daniels (Alec Greaves), himself another local broadcast pioneer legend, worked with him at both WKY Radio and TV from 1952-1983. There will never be a more colorful and interesting local celebrity than Danny. So "head east on your birthday", "I love you, pass it on" and" watch out for flying chairs!"
Danny had a soothing voice and an easy to like personality. He was a source of happiness to many people he never met.
What a larger than life personality!!
He was an important part of my childhood.
There will never be another like him!!!
Condolences to the family.
You taught me a lot and for that, many thanks.
I met Danny the first time at the Oklahoma Historical Museum at a Rock and Roll function. Have always loved him. Grew up watching him on T.V. May he rest in Peace. God Bless the family.
Danny Williams was so much a part of growing up in Oklahoma City. I spent many an afternoon watching 3 D Danny...the Circle 4 ranch with all the characters he played...There were the Saturday mornings with hot chocolate and the replay of the week's episodes...As a teen, I listened to Danny on the radio...and years later, when Entertainment Tonight came on and I'd see Mary Hart, I'd always think, she got her start with Danny Williams.
Danny would always sign off with "I Love You. Pass It On." There are generations of Oklahomans who feel the same way about him.
I am so sad to hear of Danny's passing. He was a great man and number one on the radio. I'll always remember having a teenage crush on him! He may be gone but will never be forgotten. I loved growing up with him. God bless you Danny.
WI;; MISS YOU DANNY WILLIAMS. LISTEN TO YOU FOR YEARS ON THE RADIO.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Williams on the Foreman Scotty show. Where I won the "Golden Horseshoe". Then, when Mr. Williams worked for K.O.M.A. down in Moore, Oklahoma, I had a chance to talk with him again. He was a very nice individual. RIP...Mr. Williams a.k.a. 3D-Danny. You will be grately missed.
I grew up listening to Danny. I had the pleasure to meet him. He was a wonderful person and a fantastic DJ. My husband started listening to Danny in 1997 while driving a truck through Oklahoma. Danny will always have a place i my heart. Danny God Bless You Always. I Love You!!!!! Pass it on.
RIP 3D you was the best TV could have you will be missed
Danny holds a special place in all Oklahomans hearts. We all have great memories of him, he is part of our history. God Bless
Danny used to end his broadcast with "...Im traveling east...Pass it on!" He can rest now knowing that he influenced so many lives with his daily wit and positive messages...God bless you, Dan D Dynamo, and may your family find that same comfort knowing what a great positive model you have been in the lives of your fans...
Without Danny, my kids, now 20 and 23, would not know what corny humor is!
Danny, as a kid growing up in a small town in Oklahoma. You were a shining star in my day. Now you are a shining star in heaven. RIP
Xavier T. Willard on Foreman Scotty and Saturday Night Wrestling are my favorite memories.

Rest in peace Danny, you will be missed.May your family find peace and comfort knowing you touched millions of lives.
Danny Williams on WKY radio and as 3D Danny and Xavier T. Willard on the "Foreman Scotty" show on WKY TV are some of my earliest memories. He introduced me to The Beatles and Led Zeppelin and I grew up on his morning radio show and watching Dannysday in the summer. Years later when I had the pleasure of getting to know him and his wife Mareen at events and parties all over town. He was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word and the definition of a legend. I miss him already but am smiling knowing he's with family and friends in a much, much better place. My prayers to his family.
RIP Danny, you certainly were a huge part of my childhood, Not only as Three D Danny and a fine radio host but also as a emcee for the wrestling matches at the stockyard coliseum. I'll always remember and miss you.
I have lost some of my childhood and life, rest in peace Dan D Dynamo and yes I saw him at the wrestling matches too and heard him on the radio. God Bless his family.
Rest in Peace Dan D Dynamo
