(aka Danny Wells)
April 7, 1941 - November 28, 2013
On Thursday, November 28, 2013 in Toronto, Ontario. Son of the late Eunice and the late Eli Westelman. Loving and adored father and father-in-law of Matthew and Danna, and Adam.

Unlike so many of us, Danny followed his dreams; The Catskills, New York, nightclubs around the world, Los Angeles, movies and television. He made them laugh and wowed them with his natural gifts.
