What can I say Jim and Dave. Danny was one of the great ones in Meadville. There are no words that can express the kindness and generosity that he gave to our family. There are some people that you never forget. I will always think of Danny and that wonderful smile he always had on his face every time I saw him. He was a great MAN.

I am sorry to read of his passing. My mother and father owned an Atlantic gas station during the 1940-1971.He frequented that store many times.Always checking that my mom was safe while he was on duty. My mother was always thankful for his caring heart and friendship. Thank you for sharing this great man with our family.
