Danny William Best, 73, of Mt. Dora, Florida, passed away on May 8, 2023 after a brief battle with cancer.
Danny was born on March 6, 1950 to Robert and Betty Best in Milwaukee, WI. Danny held many professional titles over the years including Cook, Kitchen Manager, Head Chef, Truck Driver, and most recently Writer/Poet. He won several awards and had many of his poems/stories published. One of his favorite pastimes was admiring classic cars and listening to classic rock, and he loved going to car shows. He had a sense of adventure and enjoyed traveling to Guam when his kids, Connie and Nathan, lived there. Danny spent his last several years of retirement enjoying the beautiful Florida weather.
Danny was predeceased by his parents Robert and Betty, and his son Avery. He is survived by his children Jeff, Connie, Nathan, and Delaney (Danielle); his brothers Robert (Chris), Gary, and David; six grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and a host of family and friends.

If you should find yourself wondering
Am I really… really there
Right there with you
Of course I am
There in your heart
And in your memories
No matter where in sleep I lay
If you’d really like to talk
But you feel there’s nothing left to say
Then please… please
Lighten up that heavy… heavy… heart
I’m really… really only
Just a single thought away
