On January 8, 2021 Danny Richard Pressley was welcomed to his heavenly home. A Union County native, Danny, 67, was born on March 4, 1953 to the late Houston and Foy Hasty Pressley.

Danny is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Elizabeth Seawright “Beth” Pressley, his daughter and son in law, Lauren and Ryan Van Wingerden, brother Fred Pressley, and his wife Linda.

Danny, with his brother Fred, was a well-respected business owner of Tire Country, Monroe NC for 34 years before retiring in 2018. Danny welcomed and appreciated his many customers with a bright smile. Treating his customers with respect, honesty and integrity led to many long-time friendships. Growing up in a Christian home, Danny learned to love and serve the Lord following the example set by his parents. He was an active member of Ebenezer Baptist Church serving as a Sunday school teacher, greeter and on other committees. A nature lover, he was happiest outside, enjoying the yard, his dogs, the birds and working on a number of outdoor projects. Danny loved all animals, providing a loving home to a number of rescue dogs over the years. A lifelong sports enthusiast he enjoyed football, skiing, tae kwon do, motorcycling, and boating. In retirement, Danny enjoyed golfing, hiking with his son-in-law, Ryan, and helping others.
