Sad to see Danny pass so young. He was the neighbor behind my house. Had many adventures in the 1960s and then he disappeared. Saw him off and on since. He always had a beard as an adult And rode a bike. May he enter heaven and be rewarded up there Jacob M Kaplan Formerly 1027 mirror st.

Growing up on Flemington Street, we grew up with Bobby and his late brother Fred. Danny was much younger so I really did not know him. My parents were friends with his parents. Yes, I remember and cherish those summer days and nights. Hanging out in “the woods” or “the Alamo” and preparing for a crab apple war with Mirror Street!

Always with a smile and a great story. We would walk and talk for an hour without a let up and didn't even realize and hour had past. We had so much more to say! I am at a loss to think that we will not walk and talk again in this world. Will always be grateful to have a friend like Danny! my deepest sympathies to Danny's family

Bob, Linda, Shana and families, I am so sorry to hear of Danny\'s passing. I\'m sure you all have lots of good memories of Danny. I can remember all of the years while growing up on Flemington Street that include things like playing Release the Den, volleyball and badmitton games, dodge ball and tar baby in the middle of the street to name a few. There were also neighborhood get togethers on porches, (kids or parents) playing in backyards, a bunch of us going to the park in your dad\'s station wagon, going to Freddies for penny candy, playing in the snow on the street. Those were such fun times. It may be difficult right now but try to focus on the good times had by all.
