John "Danny" Stutz Obituary


John Daniel "Danny" Stutz, born August 25, 1946, in Irwin, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully on November 13, 2023, in Baltimore, Maryland. Known for his warm smile and love of sweets, Danny was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend who left an enduring mark on all who knew him.

Danny was the beloved husband of Sandra Stutz (nee Geiger) and loving father to Melissa Dahya and her husband Kevin. He was an adoring "Pap" to Jackson and a dear son-in-law of Robert E. Geiger. His family will remember him as a man with an unyielding love for his family and always willing to lend a hand.

Born and raised in Irwin, Pennsylvania, Danny graduated from Butler High School in 1964. Following his education, he answered the call of duty, enlisting in the Army. His service to our nation was marked by his dedication and integrity, earning him the rank of Specialist 5 before his honorable discharge. After his military service, he worked for Elliott's in Jeannette, PA for over 35 years as a specialized machinist.

Danny was a long-time member of the Community United Methodist Church in Harrison City, Pennsylvania, and later of the GlenMar United Methodist Church in Ellicott City, Maryland. His faith was an important part of his life, and he found joy and fellowship within his church communities.

 As an avid golfer, Danny loved a sunny day on the course. He and his wife, Sandy, shared a love for visiting wineries and family vacations at the beach. He had a tradition of trying chocolate martinis at every restaurant they visited, a testament to his love for the sweet things in life.

Danny was a lifelong supporter of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penguins, making sure to catch the games and cheering on his teams. He passed on his love for sports to his grandson, Jackson, teaching him how to golf. They also loved to work on puzzles together and fix anything that was broken.

The joy Danny brought to life, his unwavering love for his family, and his enduring spirit will be remembered by all who knew him. His life was a testament to the power of love, faith, and a well-lived life. He will be deeply missed, yet his legacy will live on in the hearts of those who loved him.
