After a long, but courageous fight with Friedreich’s Ataxia, Danny Galentine passed away at Seasons Hospice in the Christiana Hospital on January 18, 2014. His mother was at his side. He was 49 and definitely had “fought the good fight.”

He was very proud of his Human Services degree which he received from Del Tech at the Terry Campus in May, 1994. Danny also enjoyed part-time tutoring at Del Tech to help those who needed his services.

Danny was preceded in death by his loving father, Austin Ned Galentine in 2012.

He was a fan of the Green Bay Packers, and enjoyed watching wildlife. He took great pride in his tattoos, especially the ones done by his good friend and accomplished artist, John Minka.
