My deepest sympathies to you and your family in your time of grief. I work for the City of Lafayette as Redevelopment Director and have the privilege of serving as staff to the Redevelopment Commission in which Daniel&s brother, Jim, is a commission member. You have a large close family here in Lafayette which I am sure is a comfort but I am sure Daniel will be missed.

I am so sorry for your loss, I had not seen Danny in years, we were classmates, I am sure he grew into a very loving and FUNNY man, as he was a clown in class. I read about the cancer here, and thought it would be Danny the fighter, Danny the one who didnt give in till nothing was left. Thats the Danny we knew in school. I hope he passed that on in his gene pool! My thoughts and prayers are with you all now, Rest In Peace Danny!

It has been many years since I have seen Danny, but he a good loyal
employee for me many years ago..It saddens me that Cancer has taken
away another young life..after a four year fight..he showed he had courage.
I say this knowing the pain that the family feels and my heart and prayers goes out
to each and everyone you, as Cancer just took my beloved away from me in October at the young age of 54. Know that you did the right thing in having home with you till the end, he is now lovingly forever at peace.

To the family and friends of Danny Terry,
We are very sadened to hear of Danny&s passing and we offer our condolences to his family. Danny was such a very good person to all who knew him and who was a genuine friend to all who he befriended. I am thankful that I can say that I knew Danny and I treasure the time that I spent with him while I enjoyed working for him. Danny was so good to work for and with. He was more than a boss to his employees; he was more like a friend or a brother. He had a sincere concern for the welfare of those that he knew; even for others that he didn&t know.
Although it has been quite a while since I have seen him, and his passing sadens me beyond words and leaves a void in my heart, but I can&t help but smile when I think of him. He loved life and he loved his family and friends. I have so many good memories of time spent with Danny. He was the type of person that you just love to be around and spend time with. His good nature and light-hearted personality couldn&t help but rub off on anyone who he crossed paths with.
The world will truely be a colder place without the warmth of Danny&s personality to warm it. But we can have peace in our hearts with the hope that we will be with him again when God chooses to take us to be with Him and Danny in paradise.
May God richly bless the family of Danny Terry and ease your dispare in this time of your loss.

I can not begin to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. Danny has fought the fight long enough and now he is at peace. He is finally Home. We always ask...why do I have to lose my loved one, why do they suffer so long, why him? Beth, God picked him and you because He knew you both would be strong enough to endure whatever you went through. He knows you are a very strong woman and will overcome the pain and grief. Someday we will all know why things happen and for what reason, but for now take comfort in knowing he is without pain and suffering and in a much better place that we can&t even imagine that&s waiting for us all. Beth, you know how much Danny meant to me. Keith, Paul (Yak), and I use to have so much fun with Danny. They were the three musketeers. The "shy" cutie pie with those blonde curls and gorgeous eyes. He never said a whole lot, just always went along for the ride. Keith and I will always have special memories of Danny in those earlier years. Danny was (and is) an inspiration to us all. You were blessed with a courageous human being that I am sure cherished you with all his heart and he was blessed with a devoted loving wife that remained by his side. What better choice could he have made for his wife then my childhood neighbor! You have beautiful daughters and grandchildren that will carry on his spirit to remind you that he will be with you everyday. He will be deeply missed and please know that you (and your family) will be in my prayers. Love you and God Bless. Mary

I went to school with Danny, and what I remember the most about him is he always smiled. We ran into each other over the past few years and still often spoke. God be with his family in this time of need, and take comfort in the fact that he will suffer no more. Beth I remember when you guys started dating, you were his world and he loved you so much. Your love story will continue, when God reunites you with each other. God comfort and Bless your family. Rest in peace Danny you are whole in Gods hands once more. With love. Leann Turner Thornton

I remember Danny from high school. He dated my sister for awhile. I knew about his past and losing his older brother. He seemed liked such a sweet kid. I was happy to hear he had done so well with his life and family. My sincere condolences to his wife, children, and all of those who loved him.
It sounds like he was a strong warrior in his battle with cancer.
May he rest in peace.
