Daniel P. Thorwart, 79, of 114 Capri Road, St. Marys, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, March 30, 2024 at his residence.

He was born November 8, 1944, in St. Marys, son of the late Adam and Marie Young Thorwart. Dan was a lifelong resident of the area, a graduate of St. Marys High School, Class of 1962, and was employed at St. Marys Carbon for 47 years before retiring in 2009. He promptly returned and continued part-time until last week.

On March 2, 1965, in the Sacred Heart Church, Dan married Lois A. Schreiber, who preceded him in death on February 13, 2023. They were blessed with nearly 58 years of marriage.

Dan is survived by two daughters: Deborah Auman (Tom) of St. Marys and Michelle Mannino (Joe) of Warriors Mark, PA; two sons: Michael J. Thorwart (Teresa) of Holland, PA and Joseph D. Thorwart (Deanna) of St. Marys; seven grandchildren: Kylie Centore (Vincent), Samantha Thorwart, Michael Thorwart, Daniel Thorwart, Zachary Thorwart, Noah Thorwart, and Riley Mannino; one great-grandson, Enzo Centore; two sisters: Mary Jane Pontious of St. Marys and Linda Osborne (Jim) of Sharon, PA; one brother, Steve Thorwart (Linda) of St. Marys; sisters-in-law: Jane and Bernie Thorwart, both of St. Marys; a brother-in-law, James Weichman of St. Marys; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to his wife and parents, Dan was preceded in death by a sister, Patricia Weichman; and four brothers: Leander, John, Robert, and Richard, in infancy.

Dan was a member of the Sacred Heart Church. He was an avid hunter and loved fishing. His love of the outdoors spread to gardening. He was a devoted husband, proud father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Family was always first. He was a member of the St. Marys Eagles, St. Marys Moose Lodge, and the Sportsmen’s Clubs of St. Marys and Wilcox.
