Danny, The Gladiolus Man of Naples, FL, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, June 28, 2020. He was born August 25, 1943 in Clewiston, FL and was also raised there. Dan was a loving friend, son, brother, husband, father and grandfather. He worked hard all his life and owned many businesses the most recent being Collier County Associated Flowers. Even though Dan had many accomplishments in his life, he was most proud of his family. He liked to help others in need the best way he could, telling stories about racing cars, growing gladiolus, but mostly bragging about all his kids and grandkids.
He is survived by his sisters, Ola Pearl Bishop and Linda Childers and many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, William Samuel Bishop, Sr. and Ola Victoria Pelham; brothers, Wilmer, William Samuel, Jr. and Raymond (Bud) Bishop; sisters, Phyllis Masters and Berneice Cross and foster sons, Ronny, Tommy Caputo and Larry Joe Stodgel.
Dan will be deeply missed and may he have the biggest wings to carry him in heaven.
The family will receive friends Friday, July 3, 2020 from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. at the Muller-Thompson Funeral Chapel, 2011 Pine Ridge Rd. Naples, FL 34109.
