Daniel Raymond Angert‚ 44‚ January 31‚ 1961 to August 25‚ 2005. Danny was a person who lived his life to the fullest and accomplished more things in his short life than some people will ever accomplish in their entire lifetime‚ for that we are very proud of him.
He was a member of the Petrolia Volunteer Fire Department‚ Petrolia‚ PA for over 22 years‚ the last 10 years he was a Fire Police Officer. He was also a member of the North Washington Fire Department‚ North Washington‚ PA. He loved helping his community. He was elected as the Mayor of Petrolia in the 1990’s and helped the Petrolia Borough receive much needed grant money to help the Fire Department and other community projects.
In 1994 when he worked the Veteran’s Administration Hospital‚ he saved a patient’s life by performing the Heimlich maneuver; he received the Heroic Act Award for his actions. For many years he managed a baseball team for the local United Athletics Association. His record was undefeated something he took great pride in making possible. He had hoped to one day go back to managing T-ball team and starting all over again. He also was an assistant coach for the local high school’s Boys Varsity Soccer team.
He enjoyed all the outdoor activities‚ especially hunting and fishing. He shot a 10-point trophy buck two years ago‚ he holds the records for the largest small mouth bass in Pennsylvania‚ and held the record for the largest salmon in New York. He taught his skills to his son‚ Zachary‚ and daughter‚ Brittany‚ who love the same activities as much as their dad did.
He joined the Army after graduating from high school. While in the military he volunteered to go on different assignments; he traveled to many foreign countries. After his military tour of duty was over‚ he enlisted in the Pennsylvania National Guard for several years. He was very proud of being a veteran‚ and in June of 2005 went back to visit his old Army military base.
He was always helping his neighbors by mowing their yards in the summer‚ and plowing their snow in the winter. He loved spending time with his family in their new house‚ playing with his Chihuahua‚ Mickey Mouse. He was a great person‚ he could make friends instantly‚ he had a caring personality‚ and a great sense of humor. He is sadly missed by his wife and children.
