Daniel “Danny” Hartnett, 63, is on the 19th hole with his Lord and Savior, his brother, family and friends in Heaven after succumbing to an illness on the 18th hole of his favorite golf course last week.
To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Daniel J. "Danny" Hartnett III, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Born in Scranton, Danny was the 2nd of 4 boys to Daniel and the late Ann Conslato Hartnett. He was a graduate of Scranton Technical High School and worked for many years at Suckle Industries, retiring two years ago as a sheet metal worker for the Tobyhanna Army Depot.
Danny had a lust for life, especially after victoriously battling alcoholism and bravely remaining sober for the past 20 plus years. He had a new lease on life after marrying the love of his life, Gail Urnoski Hartnett 17 years ago. He became an avid golfer and developed countless friendships along the way.
His family would like to thank his golfing buddies who courageously fought to save his life that day at the golf course. They would also like to thank the ICU staff at Geisinger C.M.C. for their exemplary care.
Also surviving are sons Derek Mandichak and wife Paulette, North Carolina, and Joseph Mandichak, wife Jarka and grandsons, Dickson City; brothers Joe and wife Marge, Scranton, and Frank, New Jersey; sister-in-law Rose Hartnett, Texas; several nieces and nephews.
Danny was preceded in death by his brother Kevin, his Mom, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A blessing service will be held Thursday at 11 am in the Miller Bean Funeral Home Inc., 436 Cedar Ave. Scranton. Friends and family may celebrate Danny’s life in the funeral home from 9-11 am. Interment will follow in Cathedral Cemetery.
