Danny was born Feb. 25, 1954, in Elmira, the son of the late Paul and Lena Carlineo. Born with Down Syndrome, he was not given much hope of survival. Thanks to the loving care of his parents, Danny thrived and grew into an outgoing individual. He is survived by his sisters, Mary Joan (John) Le Claire and Paula Edelmann, along with several nieces, nephews, and friends.

He is also survived by George and Sherrie Jensen with whom he resided for six years after his father’s death. Dan was involved with the ARC since he was a young boy.
