Daniel (Danny) Thomas Rodriguez, 32, from Hall, Montana unexpectedly passed away in Deer Lodge on Saturday, November 25th, 2023. Danny was born in Missoula, MT on September 15th, 1991 to Susan and David Rodriguez. He attended Hall School, Drummond High School, and graduated from Poplar Springs in Florida in 2010. Danny went to Washington Holmes Technical College in Chipley, Florida. He then attended Nashville Auto Diesel College in Nashville, Tennessee. Danny's love of cars started early in life. When he was 5 years old, his dad gave him tools and told him to take apart a car he gave him, and within a few months he had everything except for the engine and transmission taken off of it. At 10 years old, he took three old broken snowmobiles and turned them into one that worked. This was the beginning of his lifelong love of fixing any and all vehicles. Danny moved to Gillette, Wyoming in his early 20s and worked at Cowboy Up, an Auto Diesel Mechanic Shop. It was in Wyoming where he became a loving father to his daughter Ophelia. Later he moved back to Montana and found a job in Deer Lodge at Old Stage Auto. This was where his second daughter Kylah was born. He left Old Stage Auto to start his own mobile mechanic business, which he ran until his passing. Danny was always sociable and outgoing. He would drop anything to help anyone at any time. He loved hunting, fishing, and doing anything outdoors. The space left empty with his passing will leave a huge hole in his community and especially in his family. Danny is survived by his two daughters: Ophelia and Kylah. His parents: Susan and David. His siblings: David Jr. , Sarah, Josh, Elysia, Olivia, Kayla, Angel, and Nick. A public memorial service, organize privately by the family, will be held on December 10th, 2023 at the Drummond Community Center at 1:00 pm.

Longfellow Finnegan Riddle Funeral Home and Cremation Services has been privileged to care for Danny and his family.Show more
