He later joined Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Henry R. Wright, IV in Simmesport, La. Danky attended Batchelor High School in Batchelor, La. He was a man of many trades as evidenced by his performance on employment as a heavy equipment operator, painter, sandblasting, landscaping, and numerous odd jobs.
