He was born on December 20, 1940, in Forsyth County to the late Leslie Shore (“Tuck”) Bowen and Rachel Doss Bowen. He graduated from Northwest High School and then completed a Bachelor of Science Degree at East Carolina College in 1965. After a short career as a teacher in Davidson and Stokes Counties, he returned to his passion for wood-working and became known locally as a carpenter and home builder.

He was inducted into the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Sports Hall of Fame in 1983 for his outstanding achievement in high school basketball. Danny was a devoted New York Yankees fan and an avid fox hunter for many years.  He also enjoyed his vegetable garden and playing golf with friends. In his retirement years, he enjoyed playing bluegrass music with his wife, Linda and hosted many bluegrass jams at their home. He also enjoyed attending once-a-month lunch gatherings with his Northwest High School friends.
