Born in Orange, Texas, on December 25, 1946, he was the son of Glenn Seale and Kathryn Hopkins Seale. Danny was a self-employed Pipe Inspector for the Oilfield Industry and served his country in the Unites States National Guard Reserve. He was a graduate of West Orange Stark High School in 1965 and went on to graduate from Texas A&M in 1969 where he was a proud member of the Corps of Cadets. Danny attended all of the West Orange Reunions and was looking forward to his Texas A&M 50th Reunion. He was a naturalist and an environmentalist who adored blue birds. He built hundreds of blue bird houses and would search all over for the perfect posts to hang them on. Danny would then go back every year to clean them out and check on them. He enjoyed spending his spare time fishing throughout his life and became quite good at it. Danny was a very sweet, giving, and thoughtful man. He loved his family dearly, inviting his sister Joyce and her family and his brother Wes to live with him whenever they needed to. Danny was a very intelligent and well-read man who had a passion for his alma mater, Texas A&M. He loved his nieces and nephews and always encouraged them to do well and to attend school there. His niece Emily went on to take that advice and graduate from Texas A&M in 2007. Danny was a wonderful man who loved with his whole heart and will be dearly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing and loving him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Glenn and Kathryn Seale; and his brothers, Wesley Seale and Douglas Seale.

Danny is survived by his sister, Joyce Seale Miller and husband Bill, of Orange; aunt and uncle, Sue and Lloyd Hopkins, of Mauriceville; nieces, Emily Harrell and Madeline Miller, of Lake Charles; nephew, Jason Seale and wife Kate, of Austin; great-niece, Juniper Seale, of Austin; along with numerous cousins and other loving family and friends.

Serving as honorary pallbearers will be Cornell Thompson, Gary Derouen, Kenny Pigg, Pat Murphy, Manuel DeLeon, Barry Bates, and Bobby Turney.
