Daniel (Danny) Austin Fitzgerald, 54, of Zephyrhills, Florida passed away April 16th 2020.
Danny was born in Decatur, Georgia and graduated from Tucker High School. He attended DeKalb College and shortly after started a career in Sales. After briefly living in California, Danny moved to Tampa in 2003 to be closer to family. Eventually Danny’s love for the water drew him to work for Sunray Marina in Largo, Florida. In recent years Danny spent much of his time caring for his mother, Shirley. Danny’s hobbies included golfing, fishing, working on cars and motorcycles, and enjoying a natural light beer.
Danny will be remembered by his genuine, easy going nature and his incredible sense of humor. He was always there to help a friend. He had a distinctive laugh that complimented his shy grin. He was simply “Danny”.
Danny was preceded in death by his parents Donald Austin Fitzgerald and Shirley Marie Fitzgerald. He is survived by his daughter Taylor Fitzgerald and sisters Linda (Pete) Sadowski and Laura Stockton, his nephews: Joseph and James Stockton, and Jordan Sadowski, nieces Meghan and Lauren Sadowski, three of his closest friends Keith Strickland, Brian Faust, and Pryor Davis, and as well as many other loving family and friends
