Danny attended Stanton Community School, excelled in baseball at a young age and was quite a pitcher. Danny graduated from high school with the class of 1951. Upon graduation, he was recruited by the Pittsburg Pirates baseball organization including playing for the Batavia, New York Pirates. During this time, Danny met Iola Brumsted and they were married February 25, 1954 in Batavia, New York. Danny played with the Pirates for three years and then served in the United States Army where he also played baseball. Danny and Iola lived in New York for a short time and then returned to Stanton where Danny started playing ball with the Stanton Town Team, playing for many years. Danny worked for Farner-Bocken for seven years. He then started working in Red Oak in the car business and expanded with a new Chrysler dealership in Villisca, Iowa. In 1977, he established a franchised Chrysler, Plymouth, and Dodge Dealership in Red Oak in its current location on North Broadway. Danny was a true entrepreneur. He developed many spec homes in Stanton, built a motel and steakhouse, which is now the Stanton Child Resource Center daycare.
