    Foutz family, thank you for providing the area with a great tackle shop for 20+ years. Hopefully someone will carry on in his memory. We appreciate his business in our barber shop and just saw him last Monday. We have spent 14 yrs across the parking lot from the shop, and are deeply saddened by the loss.

    I worked for danny for short time. He was a great man,father,and teacher. We didnt part on good terms exactly believe do to stress. But i always respected him and regreted that parting. Working w and for him was one of best times of life. You couldnt help but feel drawn to danny as a friend. Hes just that way. Pleasant 99.9 % of time. Loved outdoors and nature. His great love and pride was in his family and friends. He lit up when Cannon was around…smiled at words of him. He was wo a doubt so proud of you. Remember that buddy. Psalms 33 promises joy cometh in morning i pray this to be true. Pain of loss will fade into happy memories…..farewell my friend till i see you agin
