Later in 1970, he and Jeanette purchased his favorite car, a 1969 AMC Javelin, and welcome their daughter, Christa. Dannye was a community pharmacist at Big K, Fred's, and Super D pharmacies in McMinnville, where his customers affectionately call him "Dan-O" and "Doc." He frequently delivered prescriptions to his customers on his way home frome work and opened the pharmacy after hours to fill their prescriptions in times of need. Dannye spent the last years od his career at Fred's pharmacy in Woodbury, retiring after 38 years due to his declining health.

A passionate UT sport fan, he loved watching football games on television with family and turning off the sound so he could listen to John Ward's play-by-play on the radio. Dannye loved music, especially that of Elvis Presley, and could often be seen playing air guitar in front of the stereo. He also enjoyed "talking pharmacy" with his sister, Connie, and telling jokes and stories with his brother Gary. Most of all, he loved spending time with Jeanette, Christa, son-in-law, Chris, and his granddaughter, Zoe Raye.
