Danny Leroy Dahlquist was born on October 3, 1953 to David Frankin Dahlquist Sr, and Fern Cora Elston Dahlquist. There was a small mix-up with his drivers license as it read 1952, and Danny was always excited about that, making him a year older. Danny was born, grew up and educated in Blackfoot.

Danny went back to school to earn his high school certificate, then on to college to get a degree in Heath Physics, where he worked at the INEEL and later at San An Ofere Califorina. When he became ill, he and his family returned to Blackfoot to live near their family and friends.
Danny had many loves in his life, ferrets, various cats and dogs, and anything that could be collectable. He was a wealth of knowledge on any type of stamp or coin you could find. He loved is his son, wife and family the most.
