He served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam war. Danny was united in marriage to the former Jo Brenner on July 7, 1975, in Marion. He worked for over 30 years as a rural mail carrier. Dan was friendly and outgoing, which is why so many friends enjoyed casual time with him in his garage.
