Danny Materio Memorial Fund

We were too young to have had been financially ready for something like this to happen to us. Danny was too young to go and I find my self grasping at the hopes of pulling this off for him. Danny leaves behind his wife Samantha, 13 year old son Danny Jr and step children 12 year old Joshua, 10 year old Desiree, and 9 year old Jack. Today we grieve the loss of one of the realest men out there. Someone who wouldn’t hesitate giving you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Danny was the man everyone turned to for guidance, knowledge, hope, and hard truth. I know everyday I’m going to struggle not having my best friend here and I don’t know if I can do it without him. Danny we will miss you every second of every day! I hate to say it, but you are always right, however, this time you got it so wrong. You were supposed to be here!!! We love you and we need you!


 His brother (Justin) & I (wife,Samantha) have set up a memorial account with Wells Fargo to help cover the cost of the funeral service and celebration of life. Any left over funds will go towards paying off his motorcycle that we will be giving to our son Danny Jr. 

We thank you for any and all donations that are being made. This is a very difficult time .
