Dear Mrs. Dangler and family,

I hope you'll forgive the tardiness of this message, but as North High plans its 50-year class reunion, several of us have only now learned of your husband's passing.

Even after more than five decades, his memory endures. As a ninth grader, I was assigned to write one of our junior high newspaper's monthly Teacher Interviews. I chose Mr. Dangler, knowing he would be a good talker, and I handed him a short questionnaire. But it was apparently a hectic week, because when I returned to collect it, he had forgotten to fill it out! He apologized profusely and that night took the time to drive to my home to drop it off, so I could still meet my deadline. I lived in Willowick, so it wasn't exactly around the corner! Even my parents were blown away by his kindness.

In class one day he told us a funny story about going to the supermarket and running into students who were always astonished to see him and would invariably blurt, “Mr. Dangler, what are YOU doing here?” As if, he said, teachers never ate or slept or did any normal things.

I also smile to consider how many of us who were not all that interested in history as children became avid history buffs much later in life––and how Mr. Dangler would laugh now to hear US describing to HIM our favorite eras and personalities! (I'm especially fond of FDR.) Thank goodness for PBS and The History Channel, and I am sure both were stations that he loved.

I hope it helps for you to hear that he was so highly regarded by so many of us.

Mr. Dangler is a teacher I will always remember with great fondness. I was his student at North High in 1967 at the time of my mother's death. Mr. Dangler was so kind to me at this time and I will never forget him for that kindness. He clearly had a good and genereous heart. I will always think of him with gratitude when I reflect on that time in my life.

In times of loss rely on Him; thru our darkest times we can find strength and peace. Deepest sympathies to the Dangler family. Chrissie (Hovarth) Biehl class of 69

Somehow,when starting in the 11th Grade, I managed come up short a credit and I had to choose an extra class to make up for it. I chose History.
That is how I became the only Junior in the Sophomore History Class and that's how I met Mr.Don Dangler the History Teacher.
He was an avid sports fan. He liked to talk about baseball. He was very humorous and treated me like a friend.
I still remember him saying back in 1964 that his favorite song was "Red Sails In The Sunset" by Nat King Cole.
I graduated from Eastlake North in '66.
Mr. Don Dangler, a good guy and my favorite teacher.

Mr. Dangler was a wonderful yearbook advisor. I always enjoyed him for World History even though he sometimes took a while to return homework and tests to us. His excuses were classics. North High Class of 65'
