A native of Pennsylvania, Danny was born April 8, 1941, one of two children of Lawrence Robert and Hilda Elizabeth (Girard) Flexer. He had an older sister, Nancy Kay. He grew up in Pennsylvania and following high school graduation, served in the US Air Force. Danny was united in marriage to Delores Kay Hiatt on October 31, 1963, in Louisiana.

He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Liberty.
