    Lots of memories of Danny – Rich worked for the City of Revere with Dan and Dan and I were members of the RHS Class of 64. We met him and Marge often at the 466 in Danvers and it was always good to see them. He was a loyal classmate and Revere Firefighter. He will be missed in many ways. A good man…

    A truly nice guy and he will be missed.
    God bless the family during these difficult times.
