  1. Though I moved to Florida at the tender age of 20 and still here today, I have vivid memories of my cousins, Danny, Ted, Jerry, and parents, Eulah and Gerald(aka, Gerly). I so enjoyed visiting their 2-story home with the big concrete porch. We used to dance to the latest hits of Dick Clark’s Bandstand, and walk down to the big field where there was an occasional equestrian show. Danny was always the perfect host and gentleman. It is no wonder to me that he lived a righteous and impressive life. Deepest condolences to all his immediate family. I wish we had stayed closer as time went on so I would know Rebecca and watch his children grow up.
    I feel honored to have grown up with him. Sarah (Frazier-Caldwell) Banks and family

  5. Becky and Family, sorry to here of your loss. Dan was a great spiritual man and a great friend and brother in Christ. I always loved to here his stories of his father and his life growing up. I also enjoyed so much going to the Greenbrier and other courses playing golf with him. I will always remember him on one hole at the Greenbrier hitting several sand bunkers and me telling him to empty the sand out of his pockets after the round. We laughed all the way home. Dan believed one day he would be in Heaven and he was right. Love Ralph
