Danny Mitchell Poston

August 26, 1954 ~ November 23, 2021 (age 67)

Obituary

Mr. Danny Mitchell Poston, age 67, of Conway, SC is completely healed.  Tuesday evening at 6:28 PM (November 23, 2021), Danny (AKA-Daddy Rabbit) took his final breath while gazing into the silhouette of various trees from the fading sunset while his soulmate, Nan Holcomb (AKA-Bun Nan) continued to care for him.  His only child, Danielle Helen Poston Skipper (AKA-Booger) and the one he called his son, Payne Wallace Skipper, Jr.  (AKA-Hoss) arrived minutes after his Homecoming Reunion and were able to lay under the starry night sky cuddled up close to him treasuring this beautifully, broken moment.  Mr.  Danny took his final breath peacefully with his boots on, surrounded by nature, doing what he loved best.  We believe he is finally Home Sweet Home with HIS SAVIOR. 

Mr. Danny was born in Whiteville, NC, August 26, 1954, as a gift to the late Albert Leon Poston and Sella Marie Smith Poston. He was a member of Calvary Baptist Church.  He was also a veteran of the United States Marines.  He lived life never giving up and determined to live his days to the fullest!  He loved to put a smile on faces no matter if he had ever met you or remembered your real name as he more than likely had you nicknamed.  After the passing of his father, he needed to get his mother up and moving.  So, he had the brilliant idea to use his out-going personality to start a non-profit, karaoke-style, fun-night-out adventure called, Danny’s Place.  At Danny ‘s Place you were always welcome to come smile, be loved, dance, sing, pour out your emotions, or be prayed for-all while having a fun time surrounded by lifelong friends.  Danny’s Place traveled to many senior citizen centers and multiple nursing homes per request where he continued to bring life to every room he entered!  He always encouraged everyone to get up and move no matter where you saw him.  As he was only completely still while he rested his body for the next glorious day.  You probably were at least five minutes late to your next adventure if you ran into him in town as he may have talked a little bit.  If you didn’t see him on your trip to town that’s because he was in the woods on an adventurous hunt or throwing a fishing pole into the honey hole.  He would encourage you to live every breathe for the LORD like he tried his best to do. 

Mr. Danny leaves behind his daughter (Booger); her precious mother Helen Poston Jones;  son-in-law (Hoss);  two grandboogers that were the light of his everyday:  Delana Danielle Skipper and Stathan Wallace Skipper;  his soul mate (Bun Nan);   his one & only sister, the family glue:  Janice Ward (Bill); three loving, grateful brothers;  Albert Poston (Cheryl), Rick Poston (Kim), and Jerry Poston;  second dad to nephew, Matthew Poston (AKA-Lil Jerry);  many loving nieces, nephews, friends, and extended family too numerous to name individually. 

The Homecoming Celebration service will be held 3:00 PM Sunday, November 28, 2021, at Bethany Baptist Church (3160 SC-45 Loris, SC) with the Rev. Freddie Martin and Rev. Steven Cash officiating.  He will be laid to rest following the service alongside his angelic parents in the church cemetery.  The family will receive friends following the service in the church fellowship hall. 

Danny P. wished to gift his beloved family and friends with a celebration of life, final show at Danny’s Place, so the family will honor his request.   Saturday night, November 27, 2021, from 4:00 – 6:00 PM at Danny’s Place (4700 Adrian Highway Conway, SC) the family will receive friends and celebrate Mr. Danny’s life.
