  1. Danny and Lea helped to raise me and my sister. They were our parents’ best friends! Danny could find the best in the worst person, bring it out and have them living a happy life thereafter. He could catch the biggest bass and tell the best fishing tales too. His son Johnathon and I grew up together. He was my first best friend. Danny and Lea were second parents to me, and I will always love them both. The world has lost two great men, Danny and Johnathon!!
