Danny enjoyed working for the Virginia Department of Transportation as an inspector in the Rocky Mount district for 42 years. He loved his work, as well as the people he would meet and work with along the way. In retirement, he enjoyed driving the many roads he helped create, spending time with family, his dog, painting mountains surrounding his home from the front porch, and reading the many books he collected.
