Danny was born February 18, 1963 in Jefferson City, Mo., the son of Leonard Norbert and Geneva Grace (Neely) Roling.
A lifelong resident of Jefferson City, Danny received his education at Jefferson City High School.
He was a skilled carpenter and used that talent with odd jobs throughout this life. Danny was extremely practical and could fix anything to extend its worth. He would also make things for family members when he saw they had a need.
He was a strong supporter and member of the Sunshine Group of Alcoholics Anonymous in Jefferson City, Mo.
Danny found peace being outdoors with his favorite activities being fishing on the Moreau River, going on float trips with family, and hunting for arrowheads on the Moreau River Bottoms. He had quite the green thumb and put a lot of love into his garden near Lincoln University. Danny had a passion for art and participated in events with Capital Arts. He was awarded several ribbons for his drawings and artwork.
Survivors include: his siblings, Doug Roling of Kingsville, Texas, David Roling of Jefferson City, Mo., Ruth Roden (Don) of Hixson, Tn., and Rita Kempker (Gerald) of Henley, Mo.; and his nieces and nephews, Melissa Mataya (Bill), Brett Roling (Jennifer), Jen Colvin (Jeff), Jessica Snyder (Raven) and Brandon Kempker (Stormy).
