Danny graduated from Longview High School. He was an amazing welder, supervisor, lead man, carpenter, and skill man. He loved the outdoors, his wrestling events and shows, and never missed a Nascar race! Family was his life, and he would have given the shirt off his back to any stranger. His passion was to bring smile to faces, joy, and belief to every heart. He did this by being as many know him, Santa Claus.
