Danny attended the Verdun country school and later went to Ste. Rose School. In 1969, he attended Red River Community College and obtained his meat cutting certificate. He was employed as a meat cutter at various stores throughout Manitoba.
In 1973, Danny married Angele Houle. Together they had three children; Dawn, Michelle and Deano. They also raised a chosen daughter, Crystal Mancheese. The family spent many years together in Ebb & Flow, creating many friends there. Danny & Angele’s marriage did not last, and they divorced.
On May 1st, 2004 Danny then married; Joan Luke (Slimmon). Danny’s family grew, as Joan had three sons, Terry, Darryl and Bryan Luke. Danny & Joan resided in Ste. Rose and enjoyed visits with family & friends. One thing you knew though was you didn’t visit when wrestling was on.
Danny drove the Ste. Rose Handi-van for several years, and really enjoyed the interaction with the clients he chauffeured around. He also had a few lawns in town he would take care of including his own. He could often be seen mowing his lawn with his little furry friend, Buddy on his lap.
Danny was well known for his great musical ability and loved to entertain for everyone around. He would call up anyone to join him, whether it was to play or sing. He would take the stage and perform all night. He was in his element doing what he loved.
