Danny began a 35-year career with G.E. Canada in Trenton, Ontario where he and Susie lived for ten years forming many wonderful friendships that created lasting memories. His career then took them to Peterborough for 27 years where he retired in 2004. Following his retirement, he and Susie returned “home” to Welland to be closer to their families.
Danny loved cars and had a great passion for collecting Hot Wheels. He will be best remembered for his wit, sense of humour and that unforgettable laugh. He always remained positive and hopeful and faced his illness with great courage and a radiant smile that never left him even on the darkest days. Above all else, Danny loved his “Susie” with a deep and everlasting love. He will be greatly missed by family and all who knew him, and many happy and cherished memories will never be forgotten.
The family will receive friends at the H.L. Cudney Funeral Home, Welland on Friday, October 14th from 6 – 9 p.m. A service to celebrate and honour Danny’s life will be held in the chapel on Saturday, October 15th at 11 a.m. Interment will follow at Doan’s Ridge Cemetery.
