George Dankovic

January 8, 1947 — June 17, 2020

George Dankovic continued his journey with the Lord on June 17, 2020. George was born in Homestead, PA on January 8, 1947 and moved with his family to Warren, Ohio three years later. He graduated from John F. Kennedy High School and married his high school sweetheart on August 23, 1969. George was a structural draftsman and worked for several companies in the Canton area. He coached Little Leopards football for 10 years and was an active member of St. Louis Church. He loved spending time caring for his yard, visiting wineries, light houses and traveling.  He was a devoted husband, loving father, and he especially adored his two granddaughters, Hailey and Ally, and the feeling was mutual.

He is preceded in death by his parents, George and Dorothy Dankovic and brother-in-law, Richard Onder.

George is survived by his sunshine, Rosemary; daughters, Jennifer and Melissa; granddaughters, Hailey and Ally; brothers, Michael (Chris) and Richard (Fran); nieces and nephews; and sisters-in-law, Kathy (Kevin), Patti (Ron), Barbara (Jim).

Pop Pop,
You have come to a bump in the road,
To a place far away, a place far from Abode.
We love to see your fears at bay
To walk the long beach with you
To pick apples from the tall trees
These would be more than a dream come true
Though at this time we cannot be
So instead, we shall remain by your side
We will be the legs to feel the dirt beneath your soles
Your wings so you can feel beyond the blue sky
We will be the wind to blow you along as you soar

We love you Pop Pop.

~ Hailey and Ally
