Daniel Lewis Danforth, 80, born January 16, 1936 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, passed away on January 29, 2016 in Mesa, Arizona. Dan was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and proudly served during the Korean War. He was a member of the Moose Lodge # 2082 in Mesa and also an avid golfer and certified scuba diver. Dan was a plumber by trade and worked for the California Plumbers Union – Local 342 for 55 years. He is survived by his loving wife Patricia L. Danforth; son, Steve and Gloria Danforth; step-children Sherry Roethig, Deb Hubbard and Rick and Chuck Cliff as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was an active member of the Willie Men’s Club at WAFB until he joined the VGA during the late 1990’s , he played at every eastside VGA tournament until 2011 when he retired from golf. I have personally played with Dan on several occasions and enjoyed his Military stories. Old VGA golfers are like old Soldiers like Dan, they never die they just fade away.
