Danny grew up on a small mountainside farm near Pikeville, Kentucky. He helped his dad raise chickens, goats, etc. and helped with all the work along with his siblings. As a boy, his passion grew for baseball. He played baseball until he graduated high school. After graduation, he moved out into the world. He worked in steel mills, coal mines, and security jobs until his retirement in 2014. He stayed retired for less than a year and then went back to work as a security guard again. He was a hard-working man. He enjoyed working out, riding motorcycles, hiking, camping, hunting, and so much more. He loved his kids, grandkids, family, and friends and would do anything for them. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
