In his spare time, Danny enjoyed: tending to his animals, his two mules, LullaBelle and Miss Sally; fishing at the back pond;  and fixing old cars and trucks with his two sons. Danny also loved spending time with his girlfriend and two sons at their baseball games.

Danny Woolf, Sr. was a survivor of cancer and always had a optimistic outlook when it came to his treatments. When at M.D. Anderson for his treatments, Danny would speak positive to other patients and bring light to the dim situations. Danny's doctors called him their "star patient."
