Danny C. Dubuque, 57, of Plattsburgh, passed away Saturday, January 11, 2020 at the Jack Byrne Center for Palliative & Hospice Care due to complications after beating cancer. He was born in Plattsburgh, NY on April 13, 1962 the son of Harold Sr. and Ellen (Coolidge) Dubuque.
Danny worked for South Catherine Small Car for 32 years. He was an avid race car driver at Airborne Speedway for many years. When he was not racing at Airborne, he founded Lake City R/C Speedway, competing in R/C races, I-Racing or he could be found restoring his old cars, currently his 1963 Volvo and 1959 Edsel. He enjoyed going to drive-in movies, attending car shows, going out to eat and listening to Elvis. He was an avid football fan, especially cheering on the New Orleans Saints. His greatest joy was spending time with his wife, going on car rides and traveling on day trips. He will be missed for his giving nature, helping anyone and any feline-friend in need or for his gift of making people laugh.
He is survived by his wife Denise (Giddings), his siblings; Cathy Desotell, Jay Dubuque, Richard Dubuque, Harold “Skip” Dubuque Jr., Gary Spring, and Joan Spring, and several nieces and nephews.

Dan was a great Person!!! As a young Airman at Plattsburgh AFB, I was also avid racer with Dan. I bought my first ever roll cage from Dan. One Christmas I was scheduled to go home to Mass. and our car broke down. Dan was our family’s hero cause he let us borrow his pride and joy Volkswagen Gulf for the trip to Mass.
