Danny was everything all have said above. He never let anyone go hungry, he would chase people down and walk the entire line of boats on a Thursday night to make sure everyone had ate. It wont be the same without you brother. RIP

I don't know what we are going to do without you good friend. I had great times talking with you about any and everything at the Bluff on almost every Sunday for over 16 years. RIP...Bucketman.

I had the oppertunity to meet Danny on a few occaisions.... I have only been living in Brevard county for about a year and a half and when I needed help with my boat everyone told me to talk to him.... From the first time I talked to him I could tell he was a true airboater... The man had to make a dime but he would do everything he could to help you and he would do it right..... My thoughts and prayers go to his family

I never got the chance to meet him in person but talked to him on the phone a couple of times and he was very helpful guy that sounded like he would do anything to help out a fellow airboater. RIP Danny. Prayers sent to the family :old_glory:

"Ey Boy" That's always the first thing he'd say to me when he saw me, probably the same for most of you other guys who knew him personally like myself. He guided me through my very first Lycoming rebuild. Gonna miss them "LONG" ;) conversations over beers in your shop!! Prayers out for the rest of the family. See you on the river Dayne. RIP-CYL Danny!!!

Thats's funny you say that every time I think of Danny I think about all the funny we had shit talking on the the race forums. Me and jessejames would mess with Dane and Danny would get all up in the mix of it. We couldn't wait to see what he would write back. We would know if he was drinking the good soft because his spelling would go down hill as it got late. But at the end of every day he would help anyone. He was a good man. R.I.P. Danny

Bucketman meant the world to Maria and I. Took till now to stop crying. The river will not be the same without you. Crazy true story, I've only Known Danny for three years and Maria and I have been more impacted by his death than some of our own family members deaths. Just the kinda of guy he was. I could call him and talk to him about anything. He never once hid his trade secrets. Always willing to help. R.I. P. Bucketman There won't be a trip to the river that I won't keep thinking about you!!! Dane, if you or your mom need anything during these difficult times do not hesitate to call brother.

Saturday night I was talking to Danny and we were laughing about the dance music the young boaters were playing on the swamp...I said "the swamp is not what it use to be, we must be the ole timers out here now...but, we are still here". We both laughed and did a hi five....I didn't know he would be gone from us a few hours later. I've known Danny most of my life, remember when he married Debbie, when Dane was born. When we use to drive from Cocoa to Lake Harney to have airboat races in the 80's...have been a member with him in the St. Johns River Airboat Association. He loved everything associated with airboating and the swamp. He always greeted you with a smile. Rest In Peace my friend. You will be missed by so many on this earth....we will all be together to ride again one day.
