Danny loved hunting, fishing, metal detecting, hiking, camping, but most above all, Danny loved his family. He loved the Black fork area and was known to many as the Mountain Man.
Through the long hours and hardest of tasks, his family held vigil in his final days and wake. It was truly a labor of love. He would be so very proud of his family.

Further reading: Psalm 24
1 Thess 4:13 "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are alseep, that ye sorrow not even as others which have no hope."
1 Thess 2:19 "For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?"
Rom 8:24-25 "For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it."
2 Cor 4:16-18
16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 Cor 5:6-8
6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight)
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
