While in Tuscaloosa he was a member of Salem Baptist Church in Berry, Alabama. He had been living in Pagosa Springs, Colorado for the past decade and attending Pagosa Springs Baptist Church. People who met Danny knew he was a good and loyal man who loved the Lord.

He is survived by his siblings, Lynn LaFoy (Mike), Chris Avery (Gin), Mary Avery Strong (Earl) as well as his nephews Chris Avery, Caleb Toshcoff, and his niece Camille Avery.

He was known as Danny to his family but also Daniel and Danno to his friends. He was a loyal son, brother and friend who took care of his ailing father for many years before his father's death and was an important male figure for his nephew Caleb. He loved his Mom's southern cooking and talked about missing it frequently. He loved following the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. He grew to love the beauty of Pagosa Springs, and his community of friends there but also talked of returning home to Alabama.
