He loved the great outdoors, along with all things hunting and fishing, spending time with his family, traveling, including his first cruise with family this past May. Danny was a great cook and especially enjoyed sharing this gift with family and friends.
Daniel, as he was called lovingly, by only his wife and mother, was a member of the Body of Christ and First Assembly of God in Minden, where he faithfully attended. He was an excellent husband that loved and spoiled his wife. He always worked hard and provided for his family. Not only was he a friend, son, husband and dad…. his greatest joy in life was being called “Papa” by the grandchildren that he loved dearly. He took them on hunting and fishing trips, where quality time was spent He played games with them, rode them around on his back when they were youngsters, taught them to cook, and shared a lot of laughter.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to First Assembly of God, NEW BUILDING FUND, 407 Fort Street, Minden, LA 71055.
