Obituary Condolences

CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. -- Hayden K. Danio, 87, from the arms of a family who held him so dearly, was gently placed into our Lord’s loving embrace Wednesday, May 31, 2006.

Born Aug. 18, 1918, in Sudbury, Vt., he was the son of George J. and Mabel Denno Danio. After graduating from high school, he was a member of the Vermont Civilian Conservation Corps. In 1940 he moved to Cambridge, working first at a Texaco gas station - thus the nickname, Tex - and then working for many years at the Asgrow Seed Company. At the time of his retirement in the late 1970s, he was a foreman in charge of the inventory control of seed packets. He was known for his speed in accomplishing tasks and for his fast manner of speaking, which earned him his other nickname, “Flash.”

He married Dorothy LeBarron on Oct. 3, 1942.

He owned and operated Tex’s TV and Radio Repair Shop for many years.

Three years ago, he moved to the Centers for Living and Rehabilitation in Bennington, Vt., where he was lovingly cared for.

Tex was an avid reader, devouring the newspaper from cover to cover. He was always up on current events. He enjoyed gardening, growing both flowers and vegetables, and watching and feeding birds. Cardinals were his favorite.

He loved listening to country music and writing songs. One of his songs that he wrote the lyrics for, “That Moon Above,” won first place in a country music contest and was performed on the Gary Stevens television show.

For many years, he belonged to the Borderline CB Club, where he carried the handle “Black Hawk.”

He is predeceased by three brothers, Willard, Warren and Ted.

Survivors include his wife, Dorothy L. Danio of Cambridge; six children, Yvonne Danio, Gary Danio and Deborah Severson, all of Cambridge, Darlene Barry of Bennington, Douglas Danio of Argyle and Brenda Danio of Hudson Falls; a sister, Bessie LeBarron of Sand Lake; eight grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

Friends and relatives are invited to call on Sunday, June 4, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Ackley & Ross Funeral Home, 73 West Main St., Cambridge.

A funeral service will be conducted by the Rev. Jane Baker of the Embury United Methodist Church on Monday, June 5, 2006, at 10 a.m. at the funeral home.

Burial will follow at Woodlands Cemetery in Cambridge. Friends and family are invited to gather at the Embury United Methodist Church, 41 East Main St., for a reception following the burial.

Donations in Tex’s memory may be made to either the Cambridge Fire Department, the Cambridge Valley Rescue Squad or the Embury United Methodist Church.

Tex always believed in family first and leaves a legacy to treasure.
