His education began at Madison campus elementary where he made lifelong friends. He also attended DuPont elementary and eventually earned his GED.

On November 27, 1980, which happened to be Thanksgiving day, Daniel Joseph (D.J.) joined older brothers Billy and Michael into the Grass family. His education began at Madison campus elementary where he made lifelong friends. He also attended DuPont elementary and eventually earned his GED. Daniel had declared at age 3 that he could drive a backhoe and so as a young man he went to Alabama where he graduated from heavy equipment school. Although his life choices made his road through life rocky Daniel was always a hard worker and he made many friends along the way. And then on December 26, 2005 DJ met the love of his life - his daughter Taleah Danielle. He and Taleah have enjoyed a loving father daughter relationship since that day. Sadly this past Sunday, November 20, 2016 we learned of his untimely demise. Daniel is now with his brother Michael and leaves his father Jerry (Vicki), mother Cindy and oldest brother Billy along with the rest of his loving family with broken hearts. Rest in peace and in God's love our DJ.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, November 26, 2016 from 2pm until 8pm at Eastland Funeral Home to honor DJ's memory.
