I worked with Danny many times as a stage hand in NJ, in fact a few days before 9-11 he was in NJ and I had given him a baby blanket for his soon to be born daughter. He was the kind of guy who remembered you when he came thru your town, no matter how many towns he had been thru before he came back thru yours. My prayers go out to his daughters and his wife and know that he touched many lives and was greatly repected by those who had the honor of working with him!

While touring with Yanni for several years, Danny had many responsibilities... Among many others, one of them was to help me on and off the stage with my set of world-wind instruments... He was amazing!...We became close by virtue of touring for long time and it was with utmost stupor that I received the news about him being aboard flight 11. He was a beautiful soul, a wonderful, down to earth, extremely professional and easy going, funny yet fantastically effective multi-tasking young man. I had the privilege of going to ground zero to pay my respects to him in NYC, as well as being present at his memorial service right after the tragedy in Los Angeles. I pray for his family and beautiful daughters for God to powerfully bless them after this tragedy. In the midst of incomprehensible mysteries, his memory will live on in all of our hearts... I will never forget him!

I only knew Danny for a very brief time. I worked with him with The Backstreet Boys as part of the local crew at the RBC Center in Raleigh, NC. and he told me then that he was excited to be heading out after the show to see his wife who was expecting a baby. He was truly a great guy to work with.

Today my family will light a candle in memory of Danny Lee, my friend, and tour buddy, from my days of touring with Yanni. All of my best to Kellie, and her now 10 and 12 year old daughters.

Dear Danny, as we know I never met you. But, since that horrible September you had been closer to me than anybody can imagine. Thanks for the goose bumps and for making my dream come through. Now I know for sure that is something else where you are. Your love for human race has been the vehicle to transport yourself into this beautiful world. Please keep in touch!
<3 Adeline

Somehow I feel that I met you the day when I saw the picture of your wife and baby girl on the front page of the LA TIMES. Your dead touch the core of my soul. Thanks for the inspiration, I love your song.

I worked with Danny along with "Flesh and The Cash Pirates". He was a great guy and always had a knack for building something or engineering something on the fly. He was a hard worker and an all around great guy.

My heart goes out to Danny's family and friends. Although I only met him once, I will never forget the time, place, and conversation. I met Danny in August of '01, weeks before 9-11, while I was doing local stagehand work in St. Louis. I had the pleasure to work with him while constructing the bands set. When he informed us about his leave of absence in the upcoming weeks to see the birth of his daughter, I immediately put my fist in the air and congratulated him. I then informed him of the benefits of yogurt for infants (high in calcium and protein), as they don't need teeth to eat it. Ironically, I was given the news during another concert I was working, Matchbox twenty, while they were singing the Beatles song, "Don't Let Me Down." I cherish every day I see my teenage daughter, Karma, as Danny's untimely death taught me to NEVER take anything for granted.

I don't know Dan, but I just wanna say that my prayers are with you and with all the families that went through this horrible tragedy.

Danny worked with a mutual friend of ours when they were working for Korn and The Backstreet Boys. The day that Don (Poppie) called me and told me that Danny was on one of the planes that went into the World Trade Center, my heart stopped. I am deeply saddened for the world to lose such an amazing person.

To his family Kellie and the girls:

My heart goes out to you. I know how it feels to lose someone so close to you. I just lost my brother in July. May god bless you, and may GOD BLESS AMERICA!

My prayers go out to Dan's family and friends left behind on that day 9 years ago. I'd met Dan and Kelli at the grocery store where I worked back then, and they quickly became 2 of my favorite customers. Kelli, it was wonderful to see you and your (then) new baby at the store, and I pray you're doing well now. God bless everyone who knew Dan... as well as the families and friends of every hero lost on 9/11/01.

Love always, Trish

Looking through the internet, remembering that terrifying September 11th day, I came across this page, and I want to express my everlastingly sad feelings. The shock will never ease. God bless, and God help the people to cope with all that pain!

I met Dan and Kellie at a concert and even though we didn't keep in contact I never forgot his warm smile that made me feel truly at ease and like "WOW" He is truly a nice guy. My husband and I loved them and still do. My son who was born on 9/11/02 had a dream on 9/11/08 and in his dream he saw a plane really close to our home and coming right at our home. He all of a sudden described Dan to a T, (WE NEVER talked about what Dan looked like and said that he was like superman and flew up to the plane and took it to the ground and safe landing. Kellie, Amanda and Allison I pray for you all every day that God would keep you all safe and a hedge of protection about you! Rosanne you raised a wonderful son, husband and friend and he will be greatly missed forever by all of us who knew and loved him. Danny, RIP and I am so glad to have met you. 2 Bible verses that come to mind are Proverbs 17:17 A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born of adversity. Dan was the kind of man who loved everybody.
Also Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

I just want to let you know I will never forget Dan or Kellie. I will always remember when Kellie walked down the isle to marry Dan and the Minister had his Sunglasses on.
Dan was smiling his wonderful smile and could not wait to make Kellie his wife. I will remember when I went to the hospital on Thursday after Allison was born and hugging Kellie. I will never forget you Dan. Miss you and think of you all the time.

In tribute to Daniel Lee, we have not forgotten him here on the west coast. Kelli, your daughters and loved ones always in my prayers.

God Bless You

Miss you, friend.

Miss you, brother.
