February 5, 1953 - February 14, 2017
Alexander (Al) John Danka Jr., 64, of Sandy Hook, CT, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on February 14, 2017. Al, or known to some as Rocky, was born in Bridgeport, CT on February 5, 1953 to Alexander and Harriett Danka, both of whom pre-deceased him, his mother passing away just days before. Al was an incredibly talented automotive technician, most recently managing his own shop, Affordable Auto Body, with his son-in-law. In his spare time, he enjoyed visiting with family and friends who appreciated his unique humor, genuine laugh, and curious smile. Some of Al's favorite hobbies were: fishing, spending time at the gun range, tinkering with his many ongoing projects and spending time with his four legged friends. Al enjoyed and appreciated the simple things in life. He was the type of man who would give you the shirt off his back. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Along with his dedicated wife Donna, Al is survived by his children; Alexander Danka III and his wife Trisha, Kimberly McIntosh and her husband Jamie, Jason Danka and his fiancée Laura Chinigo, Melissa Danka and her fiancée Rob Door, Danielle Danka, Michael Sagnelli and David Witkowski; and his grandchildren; Michael, Stephanie and Melanie Danka, Kayla Gill, Emma and Jamie McIntosh Jr., Alyssa Danka, and Kaedince and Jakob Danka. Al’s first great grandchild, Julian, is expected this March. The family will receive friends to honor both Al and his mother, Harriett, on Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 1-4 pm (with a service at 3 pm) at the Miller-Ward Funeral Home, 260 Bank St (RT 67, across from Klarides Village) Seymour. In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation may be made in Al’s or Harriett’s name to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, 230 E. Ohio St., Suite 500, Chicago, IL 60611.
