Several things that really make you think! How special people are like Danny!! All the examples of a guy with a wealth of knowledge that would help or respond to anyone. People really remember people like this!!! There are so many people that won’t respond or want to give information to a individual by a call or personal message. Pretty special tree Southside! Custom really makes you think of how important safety is even if there is something your doing that maybe you shouldn’t.

I met Danny at my first Sawmill get together at Jakes about 6 years ago.  He was one of those people that you instantly feel at ease with, like an old friend.  I so enjoyed talking with him at later sawmill get togethers about trees and sawing.  I texted him before I bought a Grizzly planer, like his, for advice and he was always quick to help out.  He was a good friend to many and such a wealth of knowledge.  He will be missed by all.  RIP WDH.

I had heard a legend form the FF has passed. I just found out and am deeply sorrowed. I Met Danny at my 1st Pig Roast a few years ago a gentleman to talk with.

I am at a complete loss for words. Danny will be sorely missed by us and other places as well. Danny's former employer has extensive holdings in north Louisiana and south arkansas where he had a lot of friends. I have been honored by a visit during one of his trips to this area. YH, you just solved a problem for me. There is a big persimon log in my pile that I was saving for Danny. Rolling it out in the woods to go back to nature sounds like a fitting idea.

Folks, I am stepping in as an admin here. We all have questions about what happened, nobody will ever know for certain, we now know Danny suffered a freak accident doing what he truly loved to do. That's all we need to know. There is nothing that can change what happened. We all know the dangers of our chosen profession and hobbies and have to always remain vigilant, sometimes however that isn't enough, it appears this was one of those times, and there is nothing you can do about it. All one can really do is live life the way Danny did by giving of himself to all of us and many more. 

Please don't send PM messages to members who you think may have more information asking for details. I am posting this as I was asked politely to do so. Everyone is hurting, let's be respectful of his friends, family, and most of all Danny himself, together we need to find the path forward. 

Last night I was able to email photos of Danny to his email address and received a response from the family today thanking me for it. They do appreciate sharing your memories.

I see this couple of days ago, but am at a loss as I am sure are everybody who knew Danny, even if only through the Foresty Forum.   I have never met him in person, but I greatly appreciated his postings of FF and his kind humor. :'(

At Jake's last gathering, after I had said my good byes to everyone around the bon fire, I was walking away to head back to my motel, and Danny came up to me to say good bye.
I don't remember much of the conversation other that he wanted to say good bye.
To his family and his forestry forum family, I say sorry for your loss.

My heart is truly saddened. Danny was a man like no other. I met him on my first visit to Jake’s in 2019. I had a lot of questions and he answered all of them. He even suggested some books I could read to help with tree identification. This year when I saw him at Jake’s it was like seeing and old friend of a lifetime. Danny had some great stories too. Sitting around the bonfire and listening to Danny and Jake was the highlight of my trip. My heart goes out to his family.  I know this is a hard time for all. Danny will be remembered and missed by us all!!

Was just going back through some old PMs that Danny and I had sent back over the years. Yes I still go back and read some I received from Tom too. They are both giants among men. Their ability to share knowledge and keep it light and funny at the same time was priceless.

I do the same thing, but with their posts.  I think WDH had 1505 pages that he had posted on the FF.  On days when I have been laid up sick, I'd go back and read Tom's posts from the beginning.  Those are treasures.  I was reading some of Danny's the night before last from the beginning, 10/1/2006. His dendrology explanations have helped me train some really good forestry teams over the years.  Coincidently, Danny joined the FF on my youngest daughter's 2nd birthday.  She is on the team going to Indy for National FFA Forestry this year.
We had a several hours long practice this afternoon with the team that was scheduled to stop by Danny's on 10/22.  He was always in teaching mode.  I recall the first time I showed up to his place.  After the greetings, he started quizzing me on tree names, both common and Latin.  I was relieved to have passed the first test.
