He enjoyed creating things on his 3-D printer. He loved working on their golf cart and go-cart together. Danny loved shooting his guns, camping, the outdoors and traveling with his instant family, especially to Montana to visit his special friend, Janae, and her family.

He loved his lifted trucks and quads (with or without mud). He loved fishing, something his Grandpa T introduced him to. He had his Grandpa Green's love for trains. He also loved his many tattoos that signified the love for those that he had lost.
