Mr. Danielson spent many, many hours coaching a church-related girl’s softball team that I played on. He knew I was a huge Cubs fan, and took me along with his family to see my first game at Wrigley field. I will always have very fond memories of him.

I will never forget David’s warm smile and the best hugs ever! He had such a kind and gentle spirit. His love for his Lord and his family was such a testimony to all who knew him. Ann, may the Lord be your comfort and strength during this time of loss. My prayers are with you and the entire family.

I grew up across the street from the Danielson family in Rockford. In those days there were a lot of kids in the neighborhood riding bikes up and down the street every day. I remember Dave as always smiling and friendly to everyone. If he was outside when one of us came out, he would come over and chat for a few minutes. And he always had a joke about Norwegians, but you knew he was proud of his heritage. Condolences to the Danielson family.

We’ve known Dave for many years – what a godly and gentle man. We especially enjoyed his stories of Norway. Our condolences to Ann and his family.

Bob and I met Ann and Dave when we joined a small group at church. Treasured their friendship through the years! Will always remember Dave entertaining us at church with His Ollie jokes and his beautiful duets with Darlene Sparks! Will miss his smiling face and wonderful hugs! I know Bob was waiting to welcome Dave at the heavenly gates!
