Danny was the owner and operator of D & S Siding Pro for nearly twenty years before retiring a few years ago. He had served as an alderman for the city of Bourbon and since 2014 Danny has been the Mayor of Bourbon. A title that he took very seriously.
Danny was an avid collector of Dale Earnhardt memorabilia and he was an avid fan of NASCAR. He knew all the driver's names and their sponsors. He was a fan of St. Louis Cardinal Baseball, North Carolina Basketball and Mizzou Football. In his younger years, Danny loved to play basketball.
He enjoyed many Novembers at deer camp and sometimes he would go deer hunting. His fish tank, with lots of fish, is where he was most evenings. What he truly treasured most in life was spending time with his friends, family and eating good chocolate.
