On Sunday, January 30, 2022, Danny Christopher Boovey moved peacefully to his heavenly home with his Lord and Savior and with his family by his side at Iredell Memorial Hospital.

After retiring from Statesville Fire Department, he then served in the Iredell County School System for ten years. Danny was a devoted member of Fairview Baptist Church. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and sitting on the beach with family.

Boovey; his daughter, Ashley Boovey Deal; Matthew Deal, his son through love; and his grandson, Parker Deal; along with his fur babies, Pepper and Odie. Also surviving are his stepson, Shane Allen Bates, and granddaughters, Alexis and Autumn Bates.
