Danny Monroe Degner

Danny Monroe Degner, 73, of Pampa, passed away on June 4, 2019 in Amarillo.  He was born on March 13, 1946 to Albert and Pearl Degner in Carthage, Missouri.

He had been a resident of Pampa for the last 65 years and graduated from Pampa High School.  Danny married Angie Fields on April 13, 1978 in Oklahoma.  They were married for 38 years at the time of her passing in 2016.  As a younger couple, they thoroughly enjoyed dancing, camping and then later in life they took up gardening together.  Danny was retired from Celanese as a Boilermaker after 35 years as well as from the Army National Guard as a 1st Class Staff Sergeant, E7 after 38 years of dedication.  After his retirement, he worked as a licensed message therapist for several years.  A few of his hobbies were golfing, playing horseshoes and gardening.  He was a very hard-working man with a heart of gold.  Generous to a fault at times, willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need and an overall nice guy.  He loved his family, pets and his country.  He was a very patriotic man and held high regard and respect for all whom have served this beloved country.

Those that have preceded Danny in death are his parents and loving wife, Angie Degner.

He is survived by a son, Derrick Degner of Pampa; three daughters, Deidra Longo and husband Michael of Pampa, Amber Chapleau of Brownwood, Ashley Robertson of Pampa; a sister, Carmen Moser of California; eight grandchildren; three great-grandchildren and his two best friends and fur babies, Gunner and Penny.
