I just talked to him on the phone last week, I didnt know him personally but he was a really knowledgeable guy to talk to and knew his stuff when it came to airboats. I was going to order some parts in the future from him to beef up my 320..
Prayers go out to his family for their loss I knew him over the phone for an hour he seemed like a nice guy it was good talking with him.

RIP Bucketman. I still can't believe you're gone. My heart goes out to Dane, his mom and anyone that ever got to know him. Slide on Danny and see you in the swamp upstairs one day.

R.I.P. Danny, sorry we never got to slide.

Like others, I knew Danny from a distance buying parts etc. He was an invaluable resource for sure. Always took the time
to help and if he didn't have something he would find it. Seemed like the nicest guy you could ever want to meet. What a tragedy.

Prayers sent for Dane, his mom and family. May the Lord Bless you all and give you strength through this trying time.

Just got home and read this. So sorry for your loss dane. I only met your father once at Kissimmee. One of the nicest people youll ever meet, offered me a brat with peppers and onion that he was cooking in the back of his boat and had only met me just that day. Prayers sent.

Met danny only once in person, but spent hrs on the phone with him. He was a great guy that would always stop whatever he was doing, no matter how busy he was to try and help me with parts or answers. When no other mechanic had time for me, you took the time to get me back on the river. I really appreciate it danny, i'll miss chattin' and laughing with you buddy.
My prayers go out to the oliver family for God's strength to get ya'll through your loss.

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
