OBITUARY

Daniel Lynn Yanowski

August 6, 1952March 21, 2020

Daniel Lynn Yanowski was born on August 6, 1952 to Richard and Clara Yanowski at Camp Lejeune, Jacksonville, NC. He died peacefully in his sleep on March 21, 2020 in Houston TX. Danny graduated from St. Pius X High School in 1971. His personality led him to be chosen twice as “class favorite”. Danny was a favorite of faculty and his many teachers even though he preferred social activity over academics. He also participated in football as a freshman and scored a lone touchdown as wide receiver in his #85 jersey that he kept for years. He had a lifelong love of music and was a gifted musician, playing the guitar and bass guitar. In high school, he and classmates formed a band and played the greatest hits of that era. Danny retired from Marek Brothers in 2018 and was a resident of North Houston Transitional Care facility until the time of his death. While there, he was a much-loved resident. Danny was a gentle soul who loved his family, music, animals and his father’s bar-b-ques and his mother’s home cooking. He was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his daughter Debbie Yanowski, brother Dennis Yanowski (Cay), sisters Brenda Yanowski, Kathy Hetmaniak (Chris) niece Klaire Hetmaniak and nephew John Hetmaniak, many cousins and old friends. The family is forever grateful to Marek Brothers Company, and his co-workers for their support and companionship. We are also grateful to Fannie Dobbins for her loving care of Danny, and the doctors, nurses and staff at North Houston Transitional Care, and family and friends who showed care and concern for Danny through the years. For those who desire, memorial contributions may be made to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), the Humane Society, or a charity of your choice. A memorial service will be held at a later date.

Danny was one of those people who could always make you feel better just by his smile which was always present. His love of music and his ability to make you feel special will always be remembered.

To the Yanowski family,
I am so saddened to learn of the loss of Danny. I remember him so well from my days at Assumption and St. Pius. Always so friendly, and outgoing.
Dennis, I remember you and I talking about Danny and my brother at our last St. Pius reunion. I hope that he has finally found peace and will rest in the arms of your mom and dad once again.
