Daniel Herbert Schwartz

- - March 4, 1929 - March 2, 2018

Heavenly trumpets sounded on March 2, 2018 welcoming gentle, compassionate and loving Dan Schwartz just 2 days before his 89th birthday. Born in Sharon, PA to Goldie and Max Schwartz, the family relocated to California in the 1940's. He entered the USAF, serving 4 years as an A&E mechanic and ending his AF career at Williams Air Force Base, Chandler, AZ. He met Norma at Williams and after a whirlwind courtship they shared 65 years of marriage.

His work ethic, dedication to detail and easy going manner brought accolades during his 25 years at Arizona Public Service Company, he retired as Sales Manager in 1975. His later career ventures encompassed production/manufacturing, commercial Christmas decorating, home inspection then retirement. Membership and volunteering beckoned him in many directions, i.e. Boy Scouts, school activities, BPOE, and church events. His heart led him to Masonic teachings and he became a Master Mason 49 years ago. Noted in his Masonic journey is Worshipful Master of Silver Trowel Lodge #29 in 1977, Mason of the Year 2004 and 14 years as Secretary of Paradise Valley Silver Trowel Lodge #29 ending in 2015.

Dan's family always came first whether it was as a cheering sideliner, a Boy Scout leader or a paint-drenched prop builder, his presence and support was important. Dan is survived by his Wife Norma, Daughter and Son-in-law Betty and Chuck Buell, Granddaughter Jennifer Messer and Son Bob.

Celebration of Life Service will be March 18, 2018 at 1:30 pm at Resurrection Lutheran Church, 4930 E. Greenway Rd., Scottsdale. For more service information, please visit www.shadowmountain
