Obituary

Daniel A. Rodgers or “Big Danny” to those who were fortunate enough to feel the warmth of his existence has asked us to let you know he was promoted from the local Orlando office to a greater appointment on December 11, 2020. One he was not expecting and could most definitely not refuse. It comes with an incredible signing bonus, reunions to many loved ones like his father Charles and mother Julia, Aunt Ilene, Uncle Joe, his brothers Lawrence and Michael and so many old friends whom he has not seen in some time. The job security is beyond reproach. It is guaranteed 110% for all eternity. While his new exciting mission temporarily takes him from his precious beloved children Christina, Michael, Mikyla and Maurice and grandchildren Isiah and Jazmine, he wishes everyone to know he will be watching over them.

Danny will get to maintain some of his favorite pastimes from eating to his heart’s content with the bonus of not having to worry about weight gains. He will now get to play marathon Monopoly games and take on all challengers in chess. He will listen to good old R&B music of the 60’s and 70’s as he continues to explore America’s historical routes. Imagine the discussions he is having with great civil rights leaders. These perks all come with the new gig.

He also asked us to share with all his many friends, and if you knew Danny – once a friend always a friend; that he loved each and every one of you. From his young journey in Flushing Queens at John Brown HS to graduating as a Radiology honor student from Hostos Community College and then his many jobs and entrepreneurial endeavors. While it was a too short 67-year journey, it was filled with much love, some sadness and an abundance of incredible joys. However, he knew that it was not just the journey but all who touched his life, that made it a life well lived, appreciated and loved. While life is never perfect, he strived to help make life for everyone else just a little better - be it by offering a big shoulder to cry upon, a soft concerned voice and maybe just a little bit of advice. Or sometimes it was the wisdom of listening, the strength to provide and give tough love or just that special teddy bear hug.

Danny will also be watching over his beloved family: cousins who were more like sisters and brothers; Eleanor, Ilene, Tyrone and Ray, his niece; Shareese, close family members; including William, April and Janai, Louise, Ralph, Lynn, Linda and Trevor. He will never forget his abundance of good friends, all who helped make his life so much the richer. All of you were and are his extended family. Know his spirit will always be there to celebrate your many achievements. He will relish in your continuing success and celebrations. For only his love was bigger than his heart.

While Danny would never say this about himself, he was and shall always be a special angel. Until his vey last breath on earth Danny was helping others to make their lives better; he asks that in lieu of flowers you please donate to your favorite charity.

The family kindly invites you to join us in the celebration of his life on Sunday, January 31 at 1:30 PM via zoom.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Daniel has gone through a transition from life

After providing service to all of his loved ones from the
NA Family.

So many hearts are hurting today thinking of a lost loved one. When you lose
someone you love, you gain an Angel who will watch over you from above.
I pray that GOD will help each and everyone of you to find a way to keep the
sweet memories alive, to heal your broken hearts and to keep you open to face another day,
because life will move on and the sun will shine again.
When life gives you more than what you can handle, it’s time for you to kneel and pray.
Step by step the journey goes on. Little by little it may seem so long,
but The things we learn will keep us strong with faith in GOD.

GOD BLESS. Have a blessed day to all.
Love,

Eleanor and Family

I am Danny’s second cousin and he was my best friend. I didn’t call Danny by his name a lot I would often call him Cousin because that’s the name I called most of my closest cousins and Danny was my heart. To me he was the biggest man in the world and very resourceful too. Danny was always supporting me in my many endeavors, cheering me on. And he always provided me with information that would benefit me mentally, physically and financially. He was my go to person. My everything. I will never forget the part Danny played in my life. Most importantly Danny had a good heart and he was a good listener and he Loved his family
To me Danny was a big brother, a protector and a friend and I could trust Danny with my life
I will always Love him and miss him forever
Rip cousin

Love you for ever and ever
Your cousin Lynn

Life is a filled with many meandering roads, hidden curves and lots of forks. How we maneuver these twists helps to define our character and shape our lives. Danny was a man of integrity and empathy, consumed with the welfare of his family and closest friends. He gave of himself selflessly with a penchant for truth and perseverance. Despite all of his challenges he never stopped trying to become a better version of himself while sharing his knowledge and experiences with others. I had the opportunity to get to know him better after he relocated to Ocoee, Florida and interestingly, although I'm older than him, he would refer to me as 'young man' which brought a smile to my face. We spent some precious moments together and broke bread and I will miss his charm and caring heart. He's at peace because his purpose in life has been fulfilled.

Danny was my friend and in recovery my predecessor. I met him in Long Island however it was not until my husband & I moved to Florida that we became friends. Danny helped us get connected in recovery in Florida. After our home group meeting we would always go eat at Steak & Shake. We looked out for one another, we supported one another. We loved one another. God used Danny in a mighty way in so many recovering addict's lives. He will be missed. Rest In Peace My Friend.
Forever My Friend,
Janet G Harper

Brother-in-law, will never forget the good times we spent with that crazy family we call in-laws. The walks political talks/ arguments we shared so many times trying to change each others views. One of my fondest memories is of how you invited us over and we thought we were helping you start the fence which surrounded your yard, instead you didnt let us go home until it was finished. That was smart of you because I was not coming back. Good times for sure. Will miss you my brother- friend.
