Oct. 29, 1966 - June 1, 2013
Danny Eckard, 46, of Brawley, passed away on Saturday, June 1, 2013 surrounded by his loved ones.
Danny was born in Brawley, CA and lived all his life in the valley. He was a truck driver by trade. Danny enjoyed deep sea fishing and fishing in canals. He was always so happy when he out fished his dad and bragged to everybody that he caught the bigger fish. Danny also enjoyed spending time in the desert with family and friends, riding his 3 Wheeler, and dove hunting. He had an amazing sense of humor and when he would tell stories of his many adventures, you couldn't help but laugh at the vivid pictures he would describe. He was always willing to lend a hand when asked. He will be greatly missed.
Danny was preceded in death by his father, Larry W. Eckard; grandparents, Bert and Mary Gibson and Bea Stewart.
Danny is survived by his mother and stepdad, Judy and Jim Sancineto of Brawley; daughter, Andrea (Nick) Himes; sisters, Tricia (J.R. Hatfield) of El Centro and Deanne (Louis Curiel) Dotson of Arizona; aunts, Beverly (Bill) Senter, of Washington and Barbara (Dr. Jose Rocamora) of Imperial; grandchildren, Nash and Ivy Lynn Himes of Texas; niece and nephew, Alexandra and Darrick Dotson of Arizona; cousins, Matt (Allison) Malcomb, Josh (Sara) Malcomb of Brawley, Jeff Malcomb of San Diego, Dr. Shaun (Jennifer) Senter of Arkansas, Tami (Bill) Richardson of Bakersfield, Tiffany (Chris) Thorson of Washington and numerous cousins, loved ones and friends.
