I was so shocked to hear about Danny. I always remember him at Dubsdread handing out candy at the First Tuesday get togethers and he was always upbeat and friendly. We need more Danny Grants in our life. Cathy, having lost my husband 6 months ago I know how hard this is on you and I am so, so sorry.

It was with great sadness to learn of Danny´s passing. Danny was always a genuinely "good guy" to everyone he encountered. He will be missed by all who knew and worked with him. My prayers are with the family that God may bring you comfort and peace during this time of sorrow and grief.

We will miss our old friend, Danny. I first met Danny when he was a mailboy at Southern Bell in the 60's. John went to line school with him and ended up in the 'underground' and shared some adventurous times together. After our retirement, he joined us to promote childhood cancer awareness through The Ella Reese Foundation as our Volunteer Coordinator. He was so valuable to us. He'll be missed as a co-worker, volunteer, and most of all, a friend. Our deepest condolences to Cathy and his family.

What heartbreaking news to hear of Danny's passing. The world has lost such a kind and happy soul, and I'll always remember the enthusiasm and the fun he brought wherever he went... and especially on the 4th of July. Sending my love and condolences to the entire Grant family.

My dear friend and buddy for decades, I count those years as a blessing. From our youthful years in the Reserves, throughout our working careers and into our `golden´ years of retirement, Dan´s friendship was there. In our later years, meeting up for a breakfast chat always included some reminiscing over the experiences we had lived. Those mornings were special and helped guide my mindset toward the day ahead. True friend, thank you and good bye for now.

Danny was one of the most generous, polite people that I have ever had the pleasure to have known. He was like a member of the Farrell family. I worked with Danny at BellSouth/AT&T for many years. Outside of my five brothers, he was one of my closest friends. Nobody ever had an unkind word to say about this man. He enjoyed nothing more than making people happy. Every Friday night, for years, he would bring bags of candy to our Friday night get togethers, for the kids, the servers and anyone that wanted an after dinner treat, whether it was at Pipers, Friendly Confines or Gators Dockside. Many knew Danny as the Candyman. He was an avid golfer, who unlike most of our golfing group, was a golf purist. Unfortunately, that probably cost him about 4-6 strokes every round. He was also an excellent poker player, as we played every other week for many years. I also had the honor of knowing his wife Cathy, his sons Todd and Phil and their families. I loved this man like a brother and will miss him dearly.
