He attended Curry College majoring in Communications where he played soccer and was the kicker for the football team. Upon graduation he enlisted in the United States Coast Guard where he served in Boston, MA, was honorably discharged, then enlisted in the US Army Reserves. Danny worked for the City of Manchester Wastewater Treatment Division achieving additional credentialing, and enjoyed many years as a volunteer firefighter with the town of Deering, NH.
