    I have been honored to have known Danny for almost 40 years. For me, 3 things stood out about Danny. His Love for his family, his charity, and his work ethic. All 3 were intertwined to make Danny the person that he was.

    Danny was a true and valued friend to me and my family. For this I am grateful to have known Danny, and for him to call me his friend.

    Danny, my brother, you are missed and may The Lord bless you in eternal life.


    With Love,

    Lee Potacki and Family

    To my oldest brother:  what  I remember most was he did not know how to talk he just scream and in most pictures as kids he was always trying to hold me still.  The only one that still called me Barbie or Barbara Jean.  We were both Gemini.  He loved his family and his kids was very tough on them but expected the most from them and they all have done well.  I remember he ALWAYS threw one heck of a 4th of July party and the only thing my kids remember was the pool and him yelling. He scared the heck out of my son Nick when he picked him up at the airport the year I spent in the hospital because he was not use to yelling but they became good buddies in the weeks that follow.   He always like big cars and did everything possible to support his family.  I will miss him and every Christmas when I hear the dogs barking to jungle bells because he always bark when I called. Danny I will miss you and I know with all my heart you are in the spirit world and will except the ever living gospel and I look forward to seeing you in the next like.

    I would like to piggyback on all those things Lee Potacki said above. I met Danny when I went to work at Allied and we developed both a working relationship that then lead to a close friendship. In life you have friends but then you really have friends like Danny who would drop everything if you needed something. We would discuss work ethic but I have to say I don't know anyone else with a hard work ethic as Danny. I will miss our Saturday morning coffee and the clinging of the teaspoon as he mixes up his sugar. While he possess the proverbial "outside" voice some might misconstrue that as yelling. However, at least I never had to ask him to speak up because I couldn't hear him. There were very few things in life that Danny wouldn't attempt to fix. We all don't have every facet of our lives polished, but if you could cut a gem out of Danny, it would be priceless. He will be missed and his life goes on through his family which he loved. I will miss him dearly. 

    Jim Hus, Renee and family.
