Danny possessed  a charismatic and highly adventurous spirit.  He loved the great outdoors:  camping, mountain climbing, hunting and most of all traveling

Danny was extremely gifted in history, being able to recite which significant American Historical Events had transpired on almost any given day.  He was also patriotic.  He was an animal lover often feeding the poor strays.

Danny also enjoyed Western music, film and TV series Gunsmoke and Matt Dillon for sure.  Danny’s favorite holiday was Thanksgiving.  He was also partial to Christmas shows.

Danny also had a way with words, giving creative authorship in his unique and uncanny humerous commentary on or of any subject matter he chose.

Danny came to the Ogden Valley in the 80s and later made Ogden his home.

Danny met Sherri Rothey in 2008 and they were later married.  Danny was baptized a member of t he Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on August 11, 2012.

Danny enjoyed a special bond and was a loving father to all of his inherited family, particularly his sons.

He is survived by his wife, Sherri (Rothey); step-son, Benjamin Lee Holmes; grandsons, Benny and Mathew, Eric Mordaunt Holmes of Utah;  step-daughter, Shannon (Jared)  Rice  of TX; granddaughters, Jaylynn and Jaynell;  and  son, James Stuart Knight and granddaughter, Kamia Knight of Payson; his sister, Debbie (Chuck) Wortz  of OH & FL;  two nephews and numerous great-nieces and nephews.
