In 2012, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and lost his courageous battle on Saturday, January 27th at the age of 65. Danny attended Japanese Martyrs School in Leavenworth and graduated from Sleepy Eye High School in 1970. He worked for Halter Trucking for the last 35 years as a truck driver, dispatcher and most recently, head mechanic. He was united in marriage on September 12th, 1986 to Linda Hale.

He enjoyed playing cards, playing softball, coffee talk, driving around, spending time with Battle Lake friends, fishing, campfires, collecting coins, deer hunting, sports (especially the Vikings), and spending time in his “man cave.” He loved spending time with his family and friends; especially, his grandchildren and their birthday parties in the garage, sharing treats and ice cream. The grandchildren always looked forward to golf cart and boat rides with Grandpa, “Papa” Danny.
