The teenager turned 19 exactly four months ago today.

Schupach graduated from Reynolds High School last year and is being remembered by his family and community as a beloved son and brother.

There was something truly special about Danny. Even as a young teenager, he could command a room full of big sweaty guys and girls and have them laughing at his jokes, pranks, and antics,” reads a post from Zuma Martial Arts, where Danny was a member since age 6. 

A memorial service for Danny Schupach has been scheduled for Monday, September 23rd.
