Danny was born in Newville, AL and then moved to Headland where he spent most of his life. It was at Headland High School that he met the love of his life, Lynne Phillips. They married soon after high school graduation and were married for 48 years. They were rarely not by one another’s side and raised two daughters together. Danny worked in trucking for over 25 years, including time as owner operator of L & D trucking. Danny enjoyed hunting, grilling and Alabama football. Above all, he was a devoted husband, walking faithfully with his wife through her battle with cancer even while fighting his own. Danny took great pride in his children and grandchildren and loved them dearly. After the recent passing of his wife, Lynne, Danny was looking forward to being reunited with her in the presence of the Lord.
He will be missed immensely by his children Jenny McNeill (Ken) and Kim Dobson (Derek) and by his grandchildren Hannah, Grace, Claire, Jacob, Nathan, Levi and Mary McNeill and Aidan and Parker Dobson. He also leaves behind a loving sister Renae Farley (Steve) and an aunt, Treta Lee. Also, sisters-in-law, Kate Bush (Mike), Anne Taylor (Harvey) and Brenda Phillips and step-father Jerome Massey. He was preceded in death by his wife, Lynne Phillips Parker, his mother, Mable Massey and his grandparents Clarence and Gladys Mixon.
The family would like to express sincere gratitude to Dr. Basarakudo and his staff at Southeast Health Oncology, the nurses and staff of SouthernCare Hospice and especially to Mrs. Ruby Reaves and her team of sitters who cared for Danny with true kindness and compassion.
