Danny joined the army during WWII, served in the Allied Occupation of Japan and turned 18 on the ship on his way home. Danny began learning the plumbing trade after his army service, developed his company George Plumbing, went on to become a plumbing inspector in Licking County, then the City of Columbus. Danny's version of retirement was to develop CODES which provided certification instructions for plumbers. Danny was a good man who loved selflessly, worked hard, with strong character and integrity, continued learning and teaching throughout his life. He could build or fix anything, even broken hearts. He not only took care of his family he was always willing to help anyone. Danny had a positive attitude his entire life which served him well especially in the last few months.
