Danny loved people and loved to converse; he never met a stranger. He had a love for low rider model cars, NASCAR and football, his favorite team, of course, being the Dallas Cowboys. Danny loved working at IHG hotels and helping his customers out in any way he could and his customers in return, loved him and how he made each one of them feel like family when they walked into the hotel. Danny had a big heart and was always willing to give you the shirt off his back if he could.
Pallbearers will be Nicky Ortiz, Jacob Ortiz, Jordan Parker, Nicholas Ortiz, Leonel Fragoso, Benjamin Garcia, and honorary pallbearer, Matthew Saenz.
