Danny graduated from South Gwinnett High School in 1972. During his high school days, he was known as “Duke.” After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Navy and served for eight years. Following his military service, Danny supervised bridge building projects for Sunbelt Structures for nearly two decades. He then operated a successful home building business with his loving wife, Daphine, for many years.
Danny and Daphine were married for nearly thirty years until she passed away in August 2017. He leaves behind many loved ones and will be remembered as a kind, loving, and supportive father, son, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. He was fiercely loyal to those he cared about, and he will truly be missed by all. Danny is preceded in death by his wife, Daphine, and his sister, Wanda. He is survived by his children, Tangel, Buck (Leah), Danny, and Lisa (Wayman); his grandchildren, William, Marie, Kyle, Dakota, and Dalton (Morgan); his great grandchildren, Payton, Chloe, Jace, and Oliver; his mother, Virginia; and his siblings, Deborah, Michael, and Joey.
