Kaye, Ellie and I were greatly saddened to learn that Danny had passed. When we talked about our memories of Grand Beach his name always brought a smile. Whether working on the hall, playing golf or just enjoying an evening with friends are just a few of the moments we shared. May God have mercy on his soul and my he be in Heaven before the devil knows he's gone. My condolences to Kaye and the children and grandchildren. I'm having a Mass said for him asap. May God bless you all.

Kaye-Truly saddened for your loss and may you be assured he remains in good hands. Admittedly, although the few times we spent, we feel a true loss as well. His warm personality, giving nature & memorable times "on the deck", remains in our hearts...

Sorry to hear about the passing of this great Irishman. Danny brought the party with him wherever he went. He was one of my brother Willie's best pals, and by extension a great friend and mentor to me. God rest his lovely soul.
