Michael Anthony Danzi, 87, passed away peacefully on May 20, 2024 at the Center for Hope Hospice located in Scotch Plains.  Born in Hazleton, PA to the late Anthony and Elizabeth (Yanuzzi) Danzi, Michael grew up in Elizabeth, moved to Rahway in 1962 and most recently, settled in with his daughter in October of 2023.

Michael retired from American Gas Furnace Company in Elizabeth where he worked as a Draftsman/Salesman.  He belonged to the Knight of Columbus Council 1146 in Rahway and was also a member of the Men’s Senior Club.  Michael enjoyed photography and loved taking photos of his trips, especially to Italy.  He never missed an opportunity to be with his grandchildren and you could always find him rooting for them in the stands during any sporting event.
