I took at lesson with him in Summer, 2016 (I think we later figured out Philly was there) and if was one or the best experiences. We spent the afternoon and into the evening just hanging out and talking. His parents have to be heartbroken.
I corresponded with him and then his father for a while. I bought a big trophy from Danny and his father sent me gratis a home made video of Danny beating Earl Strickland. And the book about Danny was great. I know Danny had his struggles but he was another great character in the pool world. Rest in peace Pool Brother.
