Dave and family Billie and I want to express our deepest sympathy for the loss of Danny. He was very proud to work for the Village of Cridersville. He always enjoyed plowing snow in the big dump truck. Our prayers are with you in this very trying time.

Such a great guy - I don't think Danny had an enemy in the world. His love for go-kart racing was his trademark and he would go out of his way to help anybody. But all of this was only secondary to the love he had for his family. Danny was a rare breed in this crazy world and I, among many others, am thankful to have known Danny and spend quality time with him. May you R.I.P. Danny.
