Danny Lee Doris, 63, of Bradley, IL, passed away unexpectedly on October 7, 2023, in HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital in Shelbyville, IL.

He married Elaine Grueneberg on October 1, 1983, in St. Paul Lutheran Church in Kankakee.  Danny was employed at Pepsi in Kankakee for 43 years.  He enjoyed NASCAR but most of all he enjoyed spending weekends in Shelbyville fishing, camping, and boating. During the winters he traveled and vacationed in Florida.  Danny was a beloved coach and the President of the Bradley Lions Midget Football Program. He volunteered with the program for over 30 years, where he helped win multiple Superbowl Championships, but also throughout the off season, Danny spent many weekends taking care of and overseeing many upgrades at Rudy’s Memorial Park.  Rudy’s Memorial Park was the Lions practice and playing field. Danny helped to make it the premier Midget Football Sports Park and the Program it is today.
