Daniel passed away on Thursday, October 15, 2012 in a Lafayette hospital.
A native and lifelong resident of the Lafayette/Scott area, Daniel was a 2006 graduate of Acadiana High School. He was employed at Consolidated Electrical Division in Lafayette. He insisted on paying his own way, and he carried that determination through to paying for his own funeral services.
Daniel followed in his father’s footsteps as a car enthusiast. He was a lovable young man who will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Survivors include his mother, Susanna Johnson of Scott; father, Robert Short and companion, Cathy Rushing of Sunset; step-sister, Caffery Rushing of Scott; step-brother, Cody Rushing of Scott; special brother, Josh Romero of Lafayette; maternal grandfather, Floyd Johnson of Sulphur; and a host of cousins, aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends.
Preceding Daniel in death were his maternal grandmother, Bennie Lee Johnson; and paternal grandparents, Wilfred and Laura Short.
Serving as pallbearers are Cody Rushing, Josh Richey, Josh Romero, Scott Boudreaux, Raymond Fruge, Scott Hudson, Brian Hudson, and Jonathan Arras.
