RIP Danny Koker

Back in late January, there was some confusion on the Singing News forums as to whether or nor Danny Koker, the original baritone and piano player for the Cathedrals, was still living. Someone finally posted that Danny was alive and living in Las Vegas. Sadly, Danny passed away Sunday, February 18 17.

I’ve never heard Danny sing, but from most accounts, he was a great vocalist and musician.

My condolences to Danny’s wife Mary and his family.


  1. It was actually Monday, February 18.

  2. According to the news release on SogospelNews, we’re both wrong. It says it was Sunday the 17th.

  3. My Uncle, Danny Koker passed away on February 17, 2008.
