Daniel served 8 years in the Army and retired from HAFB after 25 years of civil service. He then worked at WSU driving shuttle buses until his health began to fail.
Daniel loved a good road trip and was passionate about his flashy red Monte Carlo. He enjoyed the outdoors riding motorcycles to Sturgis, Piute trail rides on ATV’s, camping, body work, mechanics, stereo electronics and bowling.
Military services will be held later this summer at Camp Williams.
Condolences may be left on the tribute wall for Daniel’s family.
Danny’s truly pure spirit could be measured in how he treated others.
What wisdom can be found that is greater than kindness?
