Danny Ray Cartwright, Sr. of St. Clair, MO, departed this life suddenly on September 24, 2010, having reached the age of forty-eight years, ten months and twenty-eight days. Danny was born in Washington, MO on October 27, 1961, son of Walter William Cartwright, Sr. and Lenora Faire Cartwright nee Holt. As a young man he was united in marriage and blessed to have five children. On January 14, 2005, he was united in marriage to Peggy Sue Thomas.

Danny is survived by his wife, Peggy Cartwright of St. Clair; by his children, Tia Light and husband, Jeff, of Salem, MO, James Struthers of Rockford, IL, Tina Vogelgesang and husband, Jeff, of St. Clair, Danny Cartwright, Jr. and girlfriend, Ashley, of St. Clair and Chad Cartwright of St. Clair; by two step-children, Rebecca Unerstall of Union, MO and Jacob Strothcamp and wife, Jessica, of Union; by his mother, Lenora Cartwright of Lonedell, MO; by three brothers, Walter Cartwright, Jr. and wife, Betty, of Beaufort, MO, Randy Cartwright and wife, Faye, of Lonedell and Emmitt “Sam” Cartwright of Lonedell; by two sisters, Sherry Mossoney and husband, David, of Stanton, MO and Melodie Rose Cartwright of High Ridge, MO; by eleven grandchildren, aunts, uncles, one sister-in-law, one brother-in-law, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, cousins, other relatives and many friends.

Danny was raised in the Baptist faith and was baptized at the age of seven at Prospect Baptist Church in Lonedell. Riding Harley motorcycles was his passion and he was a member of the Freedom of Road Riders. Hunting and fishing were favorite pastimes, especially when his family went with him. Danny was an outdoorsman at heart and spent most of his time outdoors. He loved all his family dearly and was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in the family that needed him.

A kind and loving husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, son, brother, brother-in-law, nephew, uncle, great-uncle, cousin and friend, he will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved him.
