Danny was born February 20, 1962 in Minden, Louisiana and entered into rest July 6, 2018 at Minden Medical Center after a brief illness. Danny served his country with the U.S. Army and was fortunate to be able to travel and see the world with his job as a heavy equipment operator. His hobbies included hunting and fishing with his father, and in his younger years racing #3D with his family and friends at Webster Speedway.
Danny was preceded in death by his step-mother, Gloria Mangrum, grandparents, John & Susie Mangrum and Frank & Evelyn Stevenson.
He is survived by his loving wife of 21 years, Cheryl Mangrum, the light of his life; daughter, Sara Mangrum; father, J.L. Mangrum; mother, Doris Crow; brother, Michael Crow; sister, Donna Hall & husband Dan; step-brother Phillip LaBorde & wife Alice; stepsisters, Debra Valentine & husband Rob, Teresa Davis & husband Bobby; the mother of his daughter, Karen Mangrum and his special pup, Dixie, who brought him joy daily. Danny was also survived by a host of loving aunts, uncles, nieces & nephews.
A casual memorial service will be held July 21, 2018 from 1:00-4:00 at Mangrum’s Blue Pond Estates, 120 Blue Pond Road, Ringgold, Louisiana. Family and friends are invited to come and share memories, photos, adventures and fun times had with Danny.
