Danny was a great friend and brightened up every room with his contagious positivity. I'll miss his laughter, quick wit, and humor. Most of all ,he sincerely cared about his friends and was always willing to help in any way he could or simply lend an ear to a person in need of someone to talk to. He had an angel like presence in this life and surely he is in heaven now with his loved ones. Rest In Peace my friend - John D

So very sorry for your loss, there is a promise in the bible that brings us hope. Revelations 31, verses 3 and 4. Promises us that there will come a time when death will be no more, neither will pain nor outcry be any more, the former things have passed away.. Lets all look forward to Gods promise.

Danny was my best friend, a brother I never had and my daughter's godfather. We had an amazing friendship that lasted well beyond the 11 years we worked together at 3 Sheridan Sq. I will forever remember his good heart. He was the type of person that would help any day, any time, no matter what the ask was. Words cannot describe the sadness that we feel in our hearts now that he is gone. RIP, my brother. Our deepest condolences to the O'Connor family!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

A building mourns for Danny O’Connor. A longtime employee of 3 Sheridan Square, Danny was treasured by the staff, board members and residents alike. Several of the current and past staff regarded him as a best friend. He was there for them in good times (road trips, weddings, birth of babies, new jobs) and bad-times (deaths and illness). He was a rock, a shoulder, and sometimes even a therapist. Building residents held Danny in high regard for his honesty, good nature and competence. “Where’s Danny?” would ring out whenever someone needed to move furniture, install an air conditioner, or deal with any problem that involved a ladder or tools. He slept over in people’s apartments to care for their animals when they were away. He ran into people’s apartments to check for leaks when a pipe burst. He even drove people around on his days off. Danny never had his hand out and sometimes refused well-earned tips. He was discrete and knew how to keep a secret. Danny was beloved by all the dogs in the building, for the treats he bought them. He must have had a reputation in the neighborhood, because dogs from other buildings even stopped by. Even those dogs that were not permitted treats wanted a pat on the head from Danny before going upstairs. He knew all the names of the youngest residents and always got them to smile. Danny was a regular guy: he liked his off-duty beers and was excited about his new car. He had a cheerful demeanor and a good word for everyone. It is hard to believe Danny is gone. Although they will hire someone to take his position, no one can take his place in our hearts.

I am a former resident of 3 Sheridan Square. While I haven't seen him in years, the news has saddened me greatly. Danny was always so kind, funny and helpful. He always made me laugh and was so good to my Fozzy Bear as well. May his memory be a blessing.
