To Sue and family- Please accept our sincere sympathy and message of sorrow upon the passing of our dear friend and classmate Daniel. It truly tears at the heart (now knowing after our recent conversation on the phone) that Daniel was not feeling well at our class reunion in October. What a warrior to carry the burden so secretly. We will always remember his uplifting disposition, his positive attitude and his never ending "smile." We were so fortunate to have had Daniel as a class member and an awesome friend. He will be missed tremendously by all of us. Peace and understanding to you and your family at this difficult time. God Bless.

Fellow Classmates -1956 Middletown High School

I am so sorry to hear of Danny''s passing. My thoughts, prayers and sympathy''s go out to all of his family. I had the good fortune of working for Danny at Sichert Engraving for some 10 plus years and they are some of my fondest of memories. Danny was one of the most honest and fair minded people I have ever worked for.
It had been quite some time since I last talked to Danny, but he was telling me about his grandchildren at the time, he was a happy man. RIP
