Danny Frederick was born April 23, 1982 in Redondo Beach, California. As the son of Larry and Debbie Frederick and younger brother to Jeff, Danny spent the early part of his childhood doing the typical California activities such as dirt bike riding, jet skiing, going to the beach, and Disneyland.
Early on, Danny showed a bit of a rebellious spirit. After getting kisses and being sent off to his first day of kindergarten, he quickly decided this was just not for him and fled the classroom to chase down his momma.
Danny got his first taste of dirt bike riding at the age of 3 years old when most kids are just learning to pedal their tricycle! He enjoyed riding and never gave it up. Dirt bike riding was a bond that he, his brother Jeff, and his father Larry always shared.
When Danny was 8 years old, he and his family moved to Kansas City where he continued to enjoy the activities that he loved with his brother, his mom and dad, and the many close friends that he made over the years.
Danny was Jeff’s baby brother. They spent 18 years growing up together and moved out of their childhood home and into separate places to spread their wings. It wasn’t too long until they found their way back into the same residence! Danny, Jeff and his sister-in-law Mindy spent several years playing Three’s Company at the home where Jeff and his family still live today. Danny was lovingly referred to as “Uncle Fanny” by his nephew, Brody and his niece, Hawthorne. However, Mindy, probably called him that the most.
As destiny would have it, Danny met the love of his life, April. They created an amazing life together raising their precious daughters, Alexandria and Kali. He involved April and his girls in his hobbies which included building and flying RC planes and drones, and teaching his daughters how to play video games. Danny was an amazing father to his two girls and took pride in building playhouses and other outdoor projects that the family enjoyed at their home.
Danny was gone to soon, but his was a life well lived. His family and friends will dearly miss him.
Danny is survived by:
April and their daughters Alexandria and Kali, his brother Jeff, sister-in-law Mindy, nephew Brody, niece Hawthorne, mother and father Debbie and Larry, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Extended Family Members, and the many close friends that became his brothers and sisters throughout his life.
