From the United Firefighters of Los Angeles City (UFLAC)...
Death of Captain Danny Cypert, UFLAC Secretary
4/2/42 - 4/27/07
It is with overwhelming sadness that the paramedics and firefighters of the Los Angeles Fire Department mourn the loss of UFLAC Executive Board Secretary, Captain Danny Cypert.
Brother Cypert died in an accident on Friday, April 27, 2007 while riding his Harley with friends in Arizona. A dear friend of Danny’s put it best on Friday evening when he said, "The Fire Department and his Harley were his life. I never met a more gracious, humble, sincere, and pleasant human being."
A dedicated member of the LAFD for nearly 38 years, Danny celebrated his 65th birthday on April 2nd. An experienced motorcycle rider of many years, Danny left us doing that which he loved.
