I didnt know Danny real well but met him thru friends at Gladstone Bowl. The times I did interact with Danny on the golf course, at the bowling alley or eating breakfast left me with nothing but a good impression. He was down to earth and was very friendly. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

Spent a lot of time with Danny at Crown Center and playing golf. Really enjoyed my time with him. But I never could beat him at ping pong.
