    I’m so sad to hear of Danny’s passing. Growing up in Moroni I have many fond memories of Danny. He always had a smile on his face. When I was a young teenager, I spent time at his home seeing his cute family. I’m certain he is having a wonderful reunion with all his loved ones! You will be missed!

    Danny is as much a “staple” of Moroni as anyone I know. Danny was very good at making everyone feel like family. I remember my first time hitch hiking on the way back from Wales, Danny was my ride. I remember thinking as I looked out from the back of his truck “I could probably run this fast”.. The road from Moroni to Wales, to freedom, to the feed company will never be the same without seeing the “Big friendly wave” from Danny. Some of my most favorite memories come from the Christmas season and Danny driving around Moroni blasting Christmas music. I think I (and most of Moroni) woke up to Danny “Time to get up and get to the chuckwagon breakfast” Evey 4th of July morning for most of my life. It was obvious the Danny loved to spread joy, Thanks Danny for such great memories. My thoughts and prayer are with his family at this time.

    Love Fred, Jen, Tanner & Waylen

    To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.

    We are saddened to hear about Danny. What a wonderful and fun guy to have around Sanpete. I knew Danny before he became my new cousin in law but got to enjoy more of him then as he always stopped by “Aunt Sarah’s” for a little gift of gab and always a hug and smile as well as the “God Bless ya” so with that God Bless ya Danny for the many smiles you spread.

    Danny was a great guy and a great character in the story of Moroni, Utah. I admired him and will miss him. He shaped many lives for the better. As a fellow Danny, RIP. Many happy reunions are happening right now.

    My deepest sympathy to the Dyches Family on the passing of Danny Dyches. I was impressed with him the first day I meet Danny back in 1988. He was a person full of enthusiasm for life, his family and as acting Mayor of Moroni City. I was honored to call him a friend and my employer, a person of integrity and love for others. His outstanding service for the City of Moroni was appreciated by many and by those he associated with. I continued to stay in touch with Danny over the years with visits and correspondence until his passing this year. I have always appreciated the many hours of discussion that we had, for the love he had for others wellbeing. I know that Danny is resting in peace and having a joyous and a delightful reunion with his dear wife, Joan, his son Jeremy and his parents, among others. Rest in peace my dear friend, until we meet again.
