The Guest Book is expired.
Danny was preceded in death by both parents. He is survived by his only sister, Margaret Doherty Stevens and her husband, Keith of Sulphur; his daughter, Amy Cobb of Decatur, Alabama; three grandchildren, Haley Danielle Sparkman, Sierra Jade Cobb, and Johnathan Douglas Cobb, all of Decatur; and one daughter of the heart, McKenzie Caswell of Sulphur; two nieces, Stephanie Ann Stevens and Kimberly Stevens Brantley and husband, David; one great niece, Margaret Grace Brantley; and one great nephew, Sebastian Keith Brantley.
Danny was a U.S. Army veteran and served in Korea. He was an accomplished welder for many years and then went into commercial shrimping. He hunted and fished all of his life with many of the best friends anyone could ask for. Over the years we heard many stories about these friends of his. During his days in the hospital while they visited, we got to hear just as many stories about Danny. When told, he would just smile that crooked grin as if to say "that's only part of the story!"
While Danny had only one sibling, his family of friends was large. Life was an enjoyment to him from the time he first started to walk to the time he took wings to heaven. He lived every day his way and regretted nothing. As Danny would say, "we should all be so lucky!"
Many thanks to Heart of Hospice and the Memorial oncology floor staff for all the support and caring with dignity given to Danny.
Please join Danny's family and friends in a celebration of his life to be held in Holy Trinity Episcopal Church's parish hall on Saturday, September 14, 2013 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Jeans and t-shirts are the recommended attire to honor the outdoors man that Danny was. Danny was cremated by Johnson Funeral Home in Lake Charles.
