Rochester, NY: May 18, 1954 – May 7, 2023
Daniel is predeceased by his parents Thomas & Florence (Conners) Wawro, his brothers, James T. Wawro, Michael T. Wawro, and Mark T. Wawro. He is survived by his loving wife and soul mate, Linda Henning-Wawro, his step-children Kaity (Henning) Ryan, and Sean Henning and his grandchildren, Jaxson & Colbie Ryan, His sister, Kathy Decker, and many nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly.
Danny had a long career in the printing and mailing business, where he made many good friends. He loved planning trips/adventures for his family and friends to State Parks, waterfalls, star gazing, golfing, to keep us all together and connected in each other’s lives. He was noted for his sayings, a favorite was “If I love someone, then I love the people they love too”. Wise words to ponder.
“I read of a man who stood to speak at a funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on the tombstone from the beginning…to the end. He noted that first came the date of birth and spoke of the following date with tears but said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years.
For that dash represents all the time they spent alive on earth, and now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own, the cars…the house…the cash. What matters is how we lived and loved and how we spend our dash.”
Please come celebrate our time with Dan and “his dash” on his birthday, May 18.
The celebration will be on Thursday, May 18 from 5:00-8:00 pm at Sunnyside Lodge at Black Creek Park, 3835 Union Street, Chili. Come prepared with your memories to share- in a style that Dan would expect!
In lieu of flowers, consider a gift in his memory to Mary Cariola Center. Gifts can be made online at www.marycariola.org or by mailing them to 1000 Elmwood Avenue Rochester, NY 14620
Deepest condolences. Was shocked to hear this news. Dan was probably the most loyal person I’ve ever met. He used to say that you could never put a price on loyalty. Wise beyond his years for sure. Worked with Dan at Impco and COHBER . Some of the best years for me in the workplace. Dan was a major reason why it was so much fun. My kids worked for Impco as summer help and loved Dan .
Dan you will be missed so very much. When asked if he needed anything he would say “ just a few kind words .” Only kind words for you Dan.
Rest in Gods peace Daniel T Wawro. All your “Hundez’s” will always have kind words for you.
Let me echo the words of Mr. Hyatt above – I was shocked when I heard of his passing. Worked with him for 20+ years in the Mailing business – I remember him stopping in my office after the morning meeting each day and we would discuss the latest sports news of the prior night, or discussing his annual Golf outing he’d plan every spring or the camping adventures which he loved talking about. You could always count on him to go the extra mile at work even with all the long hours that were required. I remember all the fun times he was apart of like the road rallies and company Christmas parties where he would put on different humorous monologues and skits – always the entertainer and very eloquent with his words. He will be missed by many but we just need to remember to cherish the memories and not let them faded but to keep them alive by sharing them with others and then carry those things forward in our daily lives like Greg mentioned, with just the simplest of things like giving “a few kind words” to others – this world could be a better place. May God’s peace be with you now and forever Dan
Deepest Condolences, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Daniel and I worked together for 20 plus years, he was a true friend, teacher and boss.
He will be missed; I will treasure the memories we had always.
Rest in peace and may God Bless.
Rest in peace Dan. Andrea and Jason loved you dearly. Thanks for marrying them.
