They were married for 16 very happy years.  He worked the City of Dickson and later taught electronics at the Dickson Vocational School He ended his career as a pawn broker where he was surrounded by guitars and guns. Two of his favorite hobbies.  Danny loved the outdoors and to deer hunt. He usually hunted with a recurve bow or muzzleloader. He always felt it was more sportsmanlike. He would always be sure to use the meat or donate it. Mostly he came home empty handed or with a few arrowheads he loved to collect. We suspect he liked the quiet of the woods where he most loved to be. Danny was a people person. He loved to share music and taught many people how to play the guitar and played until he broke his arm early this year. It was one of the things he loved the most. He was also a gun enthusiast and enjoyed the thrill of a new and unusual find and the subsequent bargaining.
