It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Daniel (Danny) James Ernberg, 63, who left this world too soon on January 19, 2018. Danny was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1954. He moved with his family to Lompoc when he was 12 years old. Danny thrived in California and developed a passion for the ocean. He was an avid fisherman and a celebrated surfer. Danny took his son Darren to the beach countless times from a young age to share his passion.

Danny became a master woodworker by trade. A handyman by nature, if it could be fixed, Danny found a way to do so. Known as much for his excellent cooking as for his quick humor. Danny was a man's man with a heart of gold.

Danny is survived by his father, Carl Ernberg, his mother Gloria Ernberg, his brother David Ernberg, and his son Darren Ernberg. Danny was preceded in death by his youngest brother Dennis Ernberg.

Danny will be missed and fondly remembered for the impact he had on those around him.
