    My sincere condolences to Danny’s family. Danny and I grew up together on the Northside of Michigantown. My brother Jerry and I were planning on coming back to Michigantown this summer and I said I hoped we could connect with Danny as well as others we had not seen for years. I have fond memories of escapades with Danny growing up as Ganders. God Bless and RIP my friend and school mate.
