February 19, 1933 " June 23, 2017

Daniel G. "Danny" Petreyko passed away at home under the care of his loving partner in Spring Valley, California (San Diego County) in the evening hours of June 23, 2017.

In his early days in San Francisco, Danny was better known as the escort to Empress Cristal, the Black Swan.

During the first year of the existence of the Bay Area Reporter, Danny wrote short, pithy pieces under the pseudonym Cecil Knockher Worst Weatherbee.

Danny was also unofficially granted Dore Alley as the illegitimate son of the Emperor Norton and the Widow Norton, Dowager Empress Jose.

Danny was a world traveler and in the 1980s owned two side-by-side residences in the old canal district of Amsterdam. He was a personal friend of the artist Frank Webber, better known as "Bastille," and the leather designer, Rob of Amsterdam.

Danny will be missed by his partner, family, and friends.
