I only just now learned that my former colleague and friend, Dan Luongo passed away. Dan and I were almost always the first to arrive at the Fine Arts Building, and we each made the other laugh. I don't think there is a finer commerce between friends than shared laughter. It served us well for many years. I will miss him as I am sure all who knew him will miss him.
With cheerfulness and calmness, Dr. Dan gave so much to his students and colleagues at ESU. He always brightened everyone's day. He also gave to ESU in other ways. I remember the day in about 1970 when the wrestling mats in Zimbar caught fire and he was there directing the students and fireman. Also, when a kettle caught fire in the Fine Arts Center during January break a few years ago, he was the first fireman off the truck.
My thoughts and prayers to all of you.
You are in my thoughts and prayers. From all the tributes I've read Danny not only saved lives as a fireman but enriched the lives of all who knew him. He was known as Dan to his friends but he will always be Cousin Danny to me. May God comfort you in this time of sorrow and in the days to come.
Dear Sandy and family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Dan. He was a warm and caring neighbor to my parents. My thoughts and prayers are with you. With Deepest Sympathy, Kelly Bertolazzi
The breakfast and reunion crowd of the Class of '58 at Washington HIgh School send our deepest sympathy to the entire Luongo family at the loss of Danny. I remember his easy smile and quiet and friendly countenance from way long ago. It was great sharing breakfast with his wife and him at our 50th reunion. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
