I put an old Viking proverb on a card to a friend along with a present earlier this week hoping that it would cheer him up. I was not expecting to get the horrible news that I received earlier today that Grant Berkland, aka Daniel T. Havoc had passed away.— Drew Gulak (@DrewGulak) June 1, 2020

Danny Havoc was such a special person.— brett lauderdale (@Lauderdale11) June 1, 2020
He lived w/ me for about 3 years, a time period which he would jokingly refer to as “the best of times… the worst of times” for a myriad of reasons.
I was lucky to call him a friend for close to 15 years. Here are some of my thoughts: pic.twitter.com/FHTm9e5fWB
I don’t know what to say.— (((David Starr)))🌹 (@TheProductDS) June 1, 2020
RIP Danny Havoc.
I can’t believe I typed that.
Such a sweet and intelligent person.
Ya know how they say “the death match guys” are often the nicest and most intelligent? Danny Havoc is probably the reason they say that.— Bryce Remsburg (@dabryceisright) June 1, 2020
My heart aches for his friends and family. https://t.co/30ayUGJZGe
Danny Havoc always extended kindness to me and welcomed me into the CZW family. My heart hurts for his friends and loved ones.— The Bunny 🐇 (@AllieWrestling) June 1, 2020
Rest easy, friend. 😔
I shared a locker room a few times w/ Danny Havoc but didn’t know him on a personal level. Reading all the wonderful stories/memories from his friends makes it clear that the we lost someone special.— Mustafa Ali / Adeel Alam (@AliWWE) June 1, 2020
My sincere condolences to his friends, family and fans. Rest in power, Danny.
The loss of Danny Havoc is utterly tragic. Passionate about his wrestling, passionate about his art, and gone far – FAR – too soon. I loved his sly sense of humor, and he had a unique perspective to add to every conversation. Danny Havoc was a guy we all looked forward to seeing.— Mike Quackenbush (@MikeQuackenbush) June 1, 2020
Rest In Peace Danny Havoc.— Christopher Daniels (@facdaniels) June 1, 2020

I wouldn’t be who I am today without Danny Havoc.
Absolute genius who never got the credit he deserved.
Im beyond privileged to been able to travel the world with him.
Reach out to your loved one. Life is so short.
Love you Grant.
I’m so sorry for Danny Havoc’s family, friends and fans.— Kevin (@FightOwensFight) June 1, 2020
I didn’t know him well but all I’ve ever heard about him throughout the years painted him as a passionate, kind-hearted guy.
The pro wrestling community has lost yet another good one…
Take care of each other, guys. ❤️
Not a lot of people know this but Chandler Biggins hired Danny Havoc to hand draw this DVD cover/show poster as he was a big fan of his art, here is another version he submitted as well as his rough drafts. #RIPDannyHavoc pic.twitter.com/CjBCG6OkOe— Absolute Intense Wrestling (@aiwrestling) June 1, 2020
