Danny had a passion for music and loved to sing and play guitar. He also loved bowling, gardening, cooking, and Las Vegas. He dedicated 20 years to the United States Army, working in Pharmaceutical Units at Tripler Army Medical Center (AMC), Ft Shafter, Schofield Barracks, and Walter Reed AMC in Washington, DC. Danny did two tours in Korea and served in the Korean and Vietnam wars. Following his active duty career, Danny worked in Civil Service for 28 years. Tending to his garden on the weekends and cooking for his family was a great joy. He also spent many years in various bowling leagues. Danny was always there to help friends and family by giving them gardening tips and fruits and vegetables from his abundant garden. He loved to sit and talk story and his home was always open to friends and family.
A special thank you to the Oncology and Radiology Units, and PCU and 6B2 staffs at Tripler AMC and St. Francis Hospice for the generous care and considerate support that they provided to Danny these past months.
