He was born August 4, 1945, to William H. and Mary Madalyn (Whitacre) Shirey. Danny grew up in Columbus, but moved to Hocking County in 1970. He owned and operated a successful flooring business in Lancaster throughout the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

After his retirement he moved to Texas, and eventually made his way to Costa Rica where he loved to fish on his boat in the Pacific Ocean. Danny lived a very full life and will be greatly missed.
