  1. You will always be Danny to me. It’s what we grew up calling you. You were Mikes best friend for life. Even after he moved away if you asked him who his best friend was he would stick out his chest and say ” Danny ” and smile. RIP my friend.

  2. I loved Rowdy so much. Not only did he join the school to be closer to Beth he really built relationships with teachers and the kids. I will never forget the day he stood up for Beth during a evaluation of our classroom and told a kid off like “Hey that’s my daughter and you will treat her with respect!” You will be missed Rowdy.

  3. I’m very grateful to have met Rowdy and worked with him for a short period of time during which I got to enjoy his humor and laughter. He shared the gift of levity with a team who were often stressed and tired. His memory will be cherished by many.
