Following his retirement, he accepted the position as a car sales consultant with his longtime friend and mentor, the late Marty Gibbons. He spent many years working for Gibbons and Toyota Scion of Scranton. His honest, winning personality and infectious smile served to ensure him a long and successful fulfilling career.
Danny treasured his home and dressed it with his many talents of carpentry and building skills to create the setting for a social haven-one that he and his wife shared in entertaining their many friends and family members.
