Agapito “Danny” Montoya, age 66, passed away on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, at Parkview Regional Medical Center. He was born in Chihuahua, Mexico on October 22, 1955, to the late Frederico Montoya Cordero and Priscilliana Montoya Valenzuela. Danny worked at FoamX (FXI) from 1981 until his retirement in 2016.
