Danny was born Jan. 6, 1961, to Charles A. and Arlene E. Prentiss, the sixth child of seven. He was a lifelong resident of Cogan Station, and most friends called him “Blue.” He worked as a laborer and carpenter, loved old cars and was an avid Steelers fan.

Danny’s legacy was his passion for music. He was a self-taught guitarist and started playing at the age of five. He played in several bands over his lifetime and had many followers.

He was a man of very few words, but became a master of communication when he picked up his guitar. He wrote many songs for family and friends which was his way of expressing his love for others, leaving behind a treasure of recordings for all to enjoy.

The family will host a memorial service to celebrate the life of Danny B. Prentiss on Feb. 23, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Avis Fire Company, 1 E. Central Ave., Avis, PA 17721.
