Danny Burden Sr. passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of August 14, 2022 in Grabill, Indiana. He was born on October 30, 1941 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Danny came to California as a young boy where his family eventually settled in Corcoran. He went on to meet and marry “his doll” Mary Helen Chavez and had six children. After her death in 1975, he later met and married Peggy Lee Hunt and had two more children.
Danny decided in 2019, after reconnecting with long lost family from Indiana in 2017, to move back to his birth state where he resided with his sister Beverly until his death.
