    For those of you that have been on this forum for a long time, I found out that he passed away today. He had retired from UPS a long time ago and started a fish pond business in Tennessee. He hasn't been on here for a while and I don't know the cause.

    RIP Danny.
    We sort of got to be friends.
    I helped him get a claim processed that UPS was balking on and he bought me lunch on one of his trips through Atlanta.

    MC4YOU2 Yep, not wearing brown anymore

    Very sorry to hear! I learned quite a lot from dear old Dannyboy. He was quite knowledgeable and seemed to me to be a fair and level headed guy. I wondered why he didn't pop in more often and share some of his sage union wisdom. He will be missed here on bc, and I'm sure in many hearts of friends, family and coworkers.

    I was just thinking of him 2 days ago. Sorry to hear that he passed. I enjoyed his fish pond talk.
    He was on my Xmas cookie list one year. RIP.
     
  8. He was before my time on BC. I do remember seeing a few of his posts but never had any interaction with him.

    May he rest in peace.

    So sorry. Read his posts whenever he spoke. Whatever the cause (and I don't have to know), R.I.P.

    it's rough when you lose a former co-worker when you feel that they are part of your family. a lot of retirees pass within the first 5 years( don't know how long dannyboy was retired ) for some reason. you have to stay busy .

    "...Oh oh, Daniel my brother you are older than me
    Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal
    Your eyes have died, but you see more than I
    Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky."

    Oh danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
    From glen to glen and down the mountain side
    The summer's gone, and all the roses falling
    It's you, it's you must go and I must bide
    But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
    Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
    It's I'll be here in sunshine, or in shadow
    Oh danny boy, oh danny boy, I love you so
    But when ye come and all the flowers are dying
    If I am dead, and dead I well may be
    You'll come and find the place where I am lying
    And…
