Danee was born in Kitchener August 9, 1943 to parents Earl and Elva Class (nee Weiler). His grandfather started Class Cartage trucking company and he became a third-generation owner of the business after his father passed away.

Throughout his life, Danee was passionate about Nascar and his “Habs” the Montreal Canadiens. He will be missed by his family and many friends.
