Danny’s dear wife called me this morning to inform the leadhead community that Danny passed away last night. He had fought a long hard fight against numerous ailments, most recently stage four lung cancer he was diagnosed with a week and a half ago.
He will be cremated, but funeral arrangements are incomplete and rather than force Peg to rummage around for a phone number for the Funeral Home, I suggest we all Google this tomorrow and find the service details.
I told Peg we will raise a toast to Danny at Franklin. A few years ago we had a big bullet collector get together there and Danny’s eyesight was so poor that he started to drink from a bottle of Tobasco sauce instead of his beer. We stopped him, but maybe that Louisiana transplanted from Georgia many years ago knew what he was doing. I like to think he did.
Danny, we will miss you.
