Vincent Danise Jr., of Gloversville, NY passed away Friday, August 20, 2021 at home, surrounded by his family, after a recent diagnosis of aggressive cancer.
He was born in Danbury, CT to Vincent and Kathleen Danise. He is survived by his loving, faithful, and devoted wife, Frances, married 64 years on 2/28/59.
He leaves his four children to mourn and celebrate his life; Vincent Danise Gloversville, Susan Danise Johnstown, Gina Danise (Jim Klena) Wells, and Jennifer (Paul) Ligon Gloversville and daughter-in-law, Denise Danise Gloversville. He is survived by his grandchildren, who traveled from all over the country to be with their grandparents these last several weeks: David (Theresa) Keeling California, Jordan Keeling Florida, Nicholas Ligon Washington, Nathaniel Ligon Florida, Olivia Danise Plattsburgh, Sophia Danise Kentucky, and Ben Danise Gloversville; and great grandchildren, David, Emma, and Ryan Keeling California, Xavier Keeling Florida, and Brianna, Gavin, and Thomas. He is survived by his sister, Janet (Richard) Beck Connecticut, Fred (Maggie) Danise California, and sister-in-law Theresa (Gene) Reiske Connecticut. He is also survived by special family friends, Mike and Melanie Voght and his godchildren, Michael and Megan.
He was predeceased by his brother, Robert Danise and sister, Rosalie Danise.
Vincent’s greatest accomplishment in life was his family. His love for his wife, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren was seen in everything he did. He encouraged and celebrated all our accomplishments, never missing sporting events, school activities, graduations, birthdays, and life events. He instilled in all of us the value of working hard, never giving up, showing up when it mattered, and surrounding yourself with the people you love. He loved going for rides, Sunday dinners, eating at various restaurants, concerts in the park, and holiday celebrations. Susan, Gina, Paul, and Jim made it possible for “one more road trip” to Gina and Jim’s home in Wells to see a recent home project and spend time with his favorite furry companion, Rocky.
In keeping with Vincent’s wishes, the family will hold a private memorial service. The family would appreciate any memorial contributions be made to Mountain Valley Hospice 108 Steele Ave. Gloversville NY 12078. We will be forever grateful for the love and support of family, friends, the Mountain Valley Hospice team, Katie from CHC, Lincare, and Ashley Duross and her team at St. Mary’s Rao Pavillion Cancer Center.
The staff of Walrath and Stewart Funeral Home is honored to be caring for the Danise family as they navigate this difficult time.
