Daniel “Danny” Schwartz, a resident of South Fallsburg, NY, passed away peacefully Wednesday, March 29, 2023, at his home in South Fallsburg. He was 101 years old. The son of Luis Schwartz and Rose Pantel Schwartz, Danny was born on June 16, 1921, in Brooklyn, NY.
Danny was a Captain and Flight Surgeon in the Air Force while he attended Tulane University to earn his medical degree. He also was a member of the Army during part of his time attending college in Arkansas and Tulane. He was a pillar of the South Fallsburg area as a doctor on Main Street for about 45 years, serving the community, hotels, and many bungalow colonies that characterized the Catskills. He was known for his no-nonsense bedside manner, but also for his sense of humor and his all-in commitment to his loved ones, hobbies, and passions. Danny was an aviator, even building his own airplane in the basement of his home (a Starduster biplane) and possessing aerobatics and instrumental flight licenses. He was also an avid outdoorsman who loved carpentry and mechanics. He also loved playing piano, painting, and his beloved dogs, who were forever on his lap and in his presence. He was a man of diverse interests, with a never-ending curiosity about life.
Daniel is survived by his sons Ivan Schwartz and Marlin Schwartz, his granddaughters Susie Schwartz, Anabel Schwartz, and great-grandsons Hudson and Diego Schwartz.
He was predeceased by his son Darryl Schwartz, his wife Betty Schwartz, and his mother and father Rose Pantel Schwartz and Luis Schwartz.
