    God bless you and your family Danny.
    You were a good friend, a loyal classmate
    and a great American. Your devotion to your
    country during the Vietnam war never went
    unnoticed, I considered you a hero, and as I
    told you we were proud that you served for
    those of us who were note accepted to go.
    Be in peace with the lord and get the eternal
    rest you so much deserve.

    Thank you my friend, we’ll miss you.

    My best friend for 40 years, hero, protector, big brother…..Danny is intertwined in so many memories of my life. He is Godfather to my son, Jay. He was the bravest, most loyal, kindest man I have ever known. Sandy, you gave him the “center” he needed to keep him grounded and he loved you dearly. Rest in Peace, my dear Friend. Thank you for “rescuing” me…. See you in heaven!

    It’s been great to know you as a good riend and a comrade-in-arms. You were a great member of Vietnam Veterans of America chapter 9 5 3 and supported us so much. You were always trying to do things to help everyone especially your fellow brothers in arms. You have suffered so poorly this last year I know you’re in a better place and may you always rest in peace.

    Danny,
    I was deeply saddened to learn of your passing. When I last saw you at our 50th anniversary class reunion you were so full of life, telling stories, so funny and jovial – just having a great time with your classmates. I’ll remember your smile and laugh! Thank you for your service to our country and the sacrifices you made. You will be missed, my friend.

    A good friend and fellow rail roader who spared nothing to help any one in need. An honor to know and work with him and cherish the memories that he left all of us. A true servant for God, Country and Fellow Man that will be missed. To his wife Sandy who never wavered in caring for him we pray for God’s Eternal Blessings during this time and take comfort in his word. Our prayers and thoughts to the family, Jimmy and Gerty Adcock.
