    Dan is my cousin. I loved going to Uncle Herb’s and Aunt Esther’s house to play games with Danny when we were kids. He was a great guy who seemed to always be happy. We lost close contact as I moved from Indiana with my family and as the years passed, but, we talked on the phone from time to time… mostly laughing about the fun times we had growing up as cousins. I, along with anyone who knew him, will miss him. RIP, Cous!! Greg Spray

    I grew up with Danny although I was a few years older than him. We lived in the same neighborhood in Woodside district. His mother and my mother were good friends and was in a Euchre club together for years. Our name was Meneely and Danny was a very good neighbor. We had a lot of fun in that neighborhood. I am so sorry for your loss. I knew all of his sisters also. It was a close neighborhood back in the days. I know he will be missed by many, my best wishes to all the family. Nancy Meneely Corwin

    Some of the best memories from my childhood were visiting my nextdoor neighbors, Dan and Pat. Trish was often my babysitter and I spent many hours enjoying the company of the Sprays. I am sadden to hear of Dan’s passing. He was a kind giant to the little person I was. My heart goes out to Pat, Trish, and Jeff – I am sorry for your loss.
