 Danny was the most loving husband, father, son, and brother. He spent a lot of time with his family. He loved his wife and children more than anything. He enjoyed going places to see new things and loved nature. Many people will remember him for his hard work, humor, giving nature, and help that he was always willing to give. His wife will remember him for being the guy who always opened her door and always held her hand wherever they went. His kids will remember him for being the hardest working man they knew and taking care of them and providing them with anything they ever needed or wanted.

 Danny was the type of father who wanted to make sure his children were as happy and successful as they could be even as adults and from so many miles away. He strived to bring them comfort in any and every obstacle they faced and never failed to help them achieve peace. His role as their father never slowed down and he set an example as being one of the greatest.  If the definition of a successful life could be measured based off of how much you loved your family then Danny set the bar high.

 He was preceded in death by his father, Daniel Ray Malley; maternal grandparents, the late Robert and Iva Walker and paternal grandparents, the late Buck and Willie Mae Malley; father-in-law, Roger Blair; brother-in-law, Heath Blair; nephew, Josh Smith.

 Survivors include his wife,  Melissa Malley; two sons, Chase Malley and Luke Malley (Maya McCulloch) of Mt. Olive; one daughter, Danielle Bynum (Buddy) of Taylorsville; mother, Betty Malley of Magee; one brother, Dwayne Malley (Amy) of Florence;  two sisters, Lisa Blancett (Scottie) of Collins, Lori Myer (Tom) of Gulf Breeze Florida;  one grandson, Losson; two granddaughters, Hallie and Oakleigh; three nephews, Jason Walker, Nathan Walker, and Austin Blair;  three nieces, Morgan Malley, Renee Alvis and Kaylee White; mother- in-law, Gloria Blair and a host of uncles, aunts, and cousins.
