Danny was united in marriage to the love of his life Barbara Giller on June 3, 1956 in Pearsall, Texas. Danny worked in the oil field after getting out of the Navy, he traveled all over Texas working. Danny enjoyed different types of restaurants to where he knew almost every little hole in the wall diner throughout Texas from his traveling with work. Outside of his traveling all over Texas his favorite place to go was in Platoro, Colorado. Danny had many past times but the main ones were his football teams and supporting them through and through, the Dallas Cowboys, TCU Horned Frogs and the University of Texas. Whenever it wasn’t game day though he was watching his westerns. The thing that meant the most to him though was his family, any chance he was able to he surrounded himself by his family and loved them dearly. He will be greatly missed and forever in his family and friends hearts.
