I was just informed, that Danny passed away about an hour ago. May you rest in peace. My prayers to the Stephensons, other family, and friends in this difficult time.

He was a really close friend of mine.


One of the most difficult things to see in the world is a really strong, big man crumbling in front of you, I am relieved.   I am so happy he's not in pain anymore. 
Rest in Peace my Friend

One of the first things Danny said to me was also the very last. 

I walked up to him and said, "I'm going to hug you, even though I don't know you that well."

He said "You will."

I wish there had been time to take him up on it.

Condolences to the family, and all those who knew him better than I did.

I have not cried like that for a long, long time. Both Danny and Dave will be very sorely missed. Condolences and horns up. Everyone have a fucking drink and cheers these two excellent men. My thoughts are with the Stephenson family. A great loss has been suffered.

Sandy just woke me up with a phone call to tell me, thanks girl. Right now I'm even more relieved than I am sad. When I heard a few days ago that Dan was in a lot of pain and didn't want this anymore, I just begged for his pain to end and kinda said my farewells and cried my eyes out. I just knew it wouldn't last long if he had given up and I'm relieved it didn't....

I'm crushed and heartbroken that we would have to move to a Danny-less (and Dave-less) Regina, yet we're grateful that we did at least spent time with Dan when we were in town last month. I do have a content feeling about that. And Ken, Carol, Lisa & kids and Jaimie: meeting you was so amazing and comforting. You guys think the friends are amazing for giving you comfort, be assured it works the other way around too! We are all with you in these difficult moments.

To the moderators: please make a new thread of these last posts (starting with Crazylilone's post), Dan for sure deserves his own...

My condolences as well to the family and everyone who knew him well.  I didn't know Danny as well as Dave, but it's obvious that he will be greatly missed in the same way.

To all of the Stevensons, my love in this trying time. It took me a long time to accept it, but I take solace that he is no longer hurting. This is what I prayed for. Carol you are amazing having raised two of the most wonderful men I have had the pleasure of knowing. Nathan and I are always here for anything that is needed.

very different pic (at least from the ones I know)!
How are you holding up Mark?

I am at least grateful I have some new pics with Danny from when we were in town last month, thanks to Lisa. This is one from the benefit, and she took some of us at home on their couch too, but I don't have those yet.


(his yellow color was altered a bit, because I put this pic on our travel log)

This was the only other pic I had with him (2004), where he clearly shows his dislike for being in pics Wink

I am sure you have all read the Posts about Danny, he was so ready to go,and went ou the way that he wanted to ..with Family and friends with him.
I keep thinking to myself that now I have nobody to tell me what to do next, when Dave passed I had Dan...now I don't have him. Life isn't fair, the only thing that helps is that Dan and Dave are together and will be forever...Dan said to us that Dave told him that he was waiting for him....well now they can both get out there and go to shows, sell merch, and Dan can play Drums as loud as he wants.
I miss them so much, life will never be the same......

We have spoken to the Funeral Home(same as Davids) and at this point we have booked for thursday at 2:00 and a viewing the night before. We want all the same things for Dan, for things to be a celebration of the person that we was, play the music that he loved, and send him out the way he asked to be.Please call if you can think of anything...a song...a story....a picture....we would love it.789-5638 or 525-1942

Thanks....

I woke up this morning with a message from my bro that Danny passed on last night, not a very good thing to wake up to. 

I'm happy to say that i knew Danny well, we talked quite a bit at shows, even if you didn't know him he was a very easy guy to talk to.  I also remember walking through the Cornwall on lunch  breaks at work and seeing him there, i didn't even have to ask to sit down, he'd flag me down and we'd sit and talk metal.

Last time i talked to him was at the Benefit show for his brother, we got talking about Overkill (we did that alot), i was tell him that the IE boys brought me back a DD Verni pic from the Gigantour, but he beat me, he told me he got a call from Bobby Blitz which i thought was the coolest thing ever.  After that i gave him a hug then left, not knowing it'd be the last time i'd see him.

RIP My Friend!!!!

I can't tell you why good people die young, but I can tell you that the impact of their lives will live forever in all of us.  Danny was always full of advice for me, especially when it came to Dave, but he always made me smile.  Watching wrestling or teaching Dalyn how to play drums, I can't remember a time when I couldn't count on him.  I wanted to buy a bass, Danny was there telling me if it was the right one for me, getting friends to come get us so we didn't have to take the bus...

Danny and Dalyn had one of the most amazing friendships I have ever seen.  When I told Dalyn what was going on he couldn't stop crying he didn't want to believe that the strongest and toughest guy he knew wasn't going to be there anymore.  Danny in his very own Danny like way has always seemed to be there for the little(not so little now) rug rat that would sit on his lap everytime we visited the house, or saw Dan out and about...

I remember going out and seeing Danny buying him a beer one time and him buying me one the next.  Always with that Danny joy.  Part of the reason Acy has the name she does is because of Danny and his love of music, especially KISS.  I can't even start to explain how much both Dave and Danny have changed my life.  They were both there for me when I needed them and they were both amazing in their own special and unique ways.  Memories are hard right now, but it helps to keep them alive in our hearts.

I'm sure there are a few stages that i will have to go through before i can accept this but for the time being I'm fuckin' pissed off. Sandy called me this morning to tell me the news.

I'll miss you greatly Danny you were a great person.

Here's a few more pics I dug up:

This is classic Dan.  Sitting in a comfy chair, having a beer, hanging out.



And here's various pics of him behind his drumkit, doing what he loved.







There was a time when Danny had a penchant for dropping his pants in order to incite a reaction from the audience...

This is such terrible news. I can't even imagine what his family is going through. Losing two family members within a tiny span of time. This totally proves that life isnt fair, but i hope the whole family is coping as best as they can. I didn't know Dave or Danny too well, but i, like the rest of us, offer all of the sincerest condolences possible!!! R.IP boys!

R.I.P Danny

I'm glad i was able to spend time with you... as brief as it may have been.  I'll never forget the time you played scrabble with kristie and i.  You will be missed. 

my thoughts and prayers our with his family and close friends at this hard time.

~HELLSEY~  I can't believe the mess I've made, tore open my soul, bore it all for NOTHING!  How long must I cry these mascara tears?  Solitude streams from my eyes.  Screams of sorrow sing from my lost hopes.  Who have I become?  Lost in a sea of despair.  This world leaves me empty, used, and broken.  I don't need this. I don't need anything.  I've forgotten my past, I refuse to live the present.  And the future is a lost cause.
This is my life, this is my world... this is my misery.

my deepest condolences go to the stevenson family. i can't imagine the toll a mothers worst fear would have. 2 sons in two months is not fair. dave and danny were amazing ppl...i've known them for years but just recently have gotten to know them better. i feel guilty and ashamed for not being a better person when they were around. this tragedy serves to underline the fact that we have to live for today, apprieciate the good in the now. I know that dave and danny are happy to finally be at peace.
horns up man

cheers to you heavy D
may you rest in peace.

I've known Dave and Danny all my life, To see two great guys who had a lust for life robbed of their earthly future is brutal.  I can't imagine how Ken, Carol, Lisa and the kids are feeling right now.  I was fortunate enough to be with David on the night he passed and had spent some time with Danny after that.  Danny's greatest concern was that his family would have to go through the grief again....not thinking of himself.  The measure of a great person is his selflessness.  Danny you ARE a GREAT man.  My family grieves again the loss of a great friend, and our condolences of course to Ken and Carol and Lisa and all the family. 

  Dan (Boomer) it has been a honour knowing you!!!  Rock on and say hey to Dave for me.

It's crazy, I just can't stop crying........
But I forced myself to make a mini-collage for Dan (like the one for Dave), for the Into Eternity intro page and for anyone who wants to use it. The main picture is from Marlin and the others Mark posted or were on the Radfords page. I hope it's ok that I used these, guys, if not let me know and I'll change it.

The Stephenson's are my family.  Over the years we have shared holidays, camping trips and endless hours together.  Danny and Dave were like brothers to me.  Lisa is my best friend.  Carol and Ken have been there basically for every moment of my life. 
Like Chad said...our family is grieving the loss of another great man.
We love you guys and will do what ever it takes to help your hearts mend.
I treasure all the memories I have of Dan and Dave.

Being their (slightly) older cousin, I guess I knew Danny and David longer than most.  However, the miles that separated us meant that many of you guys were lucky enough to get to know them even better than I did in recent years.  I just wanted to say thanks for sharing your personal feelings, stories and pictures, and let you know that being able to read the posts over the past few months has been very helpful for me, as I imagine it has been for others also.

Just knowing that so many of you guys have been there for Lisa and the rest of the family in Regina has helped ease the empty feeling of not being able to be there myself.  Thank you.

I remember the first time I met Danny was close to 10 years ago when I was a kid still living in Yorkton. I saw the Radfords first show ever there and about halfway through their set the crowd started to sit down. At the end of one of their songs Danny hit his kick drum a few times and said "Uh oh, did you hear that knocking? Someones at the door! You all better STAND UP and go get the door!" He kept doing that for the rest of the set, it was hilarious.
I never really got to know him until I moved to Regina a couple years ago. But from the first time we ever hung out he was always one of the nicest guys I've ever met. He came to our jam spot one nite when we still barely knew him to hear us jam for a while. Then when we were done jamming he invited us all over to his place just to hang out even though we barely knew the guy. We stayed there until 4 in the morning just talking about music. It's a simple memory, but one I'll never forget because it reminds me just how nice of a guy he was that he would let these 3 guys he barely knew hang out with him at his house all nite.

RIP Danny
