Danny had a good heart and he loved helping others. He shared his passion for music as a drummer in the band the Hernandez siblings had in New York. Throughout his life he mentored many children through ministry and as a martial arts teacher. Danny had a wonderful sense of humor and was able to make everyone laugh, which he loved to do, but most of all he loved his family.

Memorials may be made to building fund for the Full Gospel Evangelistic Center and will be accepted at the funeral home.
