Danyluk, Edward, 90, Westmont, passed away October 19, 2023 at Memorial Medical Center. Born February 23, 1933 in Johnstown, son of the late Ignatz and Maria (Slobodzian) Danyluk. Preceded in death by brothers, Stanley, Harry and John Danyluk; also by sister in infancy. Survived by loving wife of 58 years, Jacqulyn J. (Moschgat) Danyluk; son, Thomas E. Danyluk; daughter, Jill Ann married to Eric Schulties; and by grandchildren, Katherine, Diana and Alexander Schulties.
Edward was a member of Our Mother of Sorrow's (OMOS) Catholic Church in Westmont and worked for nearly 40 years as an engineer/superintendent for Bethlehem Steel in Johnstown. When the mill finally closed in 1994, he was the last salaried worker at the facility, stating quite sadly when he came home that evening, “I was the one who turned out the lights.”
Ed was a tremendous fan of St. Francis (PA) basketball and served as The Stokes Club president from 1978 to 1983, “quadrupling its membership and improving its financial posture tenfold,” per the school’s athletic department. That position earned him the to-this-day nickname “Prez Ed” (officially coined by McCort’s Doug Solomon). Football-wise, Ed was a strong Steelers, Pitt and Penn State fan and for decades was either in the stands or in front of the Zenith each Saturday & Sunday. He had a 40-yard line seat in Detroit for the Steelers’ victory over Seattle in Super Bowl XL. Athletically, he played college football for one season at Susquehanna under Amos Alonzo Stagg, Jr. before moving on to the University of Pittsburgh to study chemical engineering.
Ed was also a big believer in serving the Johnstown community and did so through local government. For decades he served as either president or member of the Southmont Borough Council, and from 1995-97 was commissioner of the West Hills Regional Police Department. He also volunteered his time as a member of the Greater Johnstown Water Authority.
Cold draught beer (Stroh’s!), Wyoming fly-fishing, crossword puzzles, fine to below-average cigars, ethic foods, US/WW2 history and yardwork were among Ed’s top joys in life. But above all was his passion for world travel, a topic he’d reminisce about enthusiastically. A partial list of his passport stamps include: Iceland, Malta, Italy, Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Germany, Hungary, Romania, Ireland, New Zealand, France, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Croatia, Holland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Sweden, Greece and Loretto, PA.
At the request of Edward, viewing will be private for his family at the Johnstown Funeral Home. Friends are welcome to attend his Funeral mass to be celebrated 11:00 a.m. Monday, October 23rd. at OMOS Catholic Church, 415 Tioga St. Johnstown, PA 15905, with Very Rev. Mark Begley, VF, Pastor.
