Born June 21, 1949, at West Hamlin, he was a son of the late Bill and Faye Ramey Williams.
Danny graduated from Harts High School in 1967 and married his high school sweetheart in 1969. He followed the northern migration to find work in the trailer factories in Indiana. After the arrival of his sons, he packed up the family and returned to his home in the hills of West Virginia. Danny was an avid outdoors man who enjoyed camping, relaxing on his pontoon boat, fishing and four wheel riding. He was a member of the UMWA and retired from Hobet after 20 years of service in mining. He was the owner and operator of K-Joe Trucking where he had much success. Danny touched many lives during his 59 years upon this earth and will be sadly missed by all those who knew him.
