In Loving Memory
Danny R. Parkhurst
January 6, 2023

Danny R. Parkhurst, 63, of North Syracuse passed away unexpectedly on January 6, 2023. He was born in Oswego, NY, on August 4, 1959 to the late Robert and Beverly (Woolson) Parkhurst.

Danny is survived by three sons; Michael (Molly) Parkhurst of Syracuse, Justin (Kari) Parkhurst of Mims, FL, and Joseph (Sarah) Parkhurst of Syracuse; 8 grandchildren, Tyler, Gavin, Josh, Anna, Mia, Nate, Hayden, and Cirrila, one great grandchild, Dixie Rose; and four siblings, Robert (Colleen) Parkhurst of New Haven, Linda Davis of Hastings, Douglas Parkhurst of New Haven, and Patricia Parkhurst of New Haven.

He also leaves behind his girlfriend, Christine Jordan of Weedsport and his close friend Dennis Cenolli, of New Jersey, who knows him as “Pop”. “Uncle Danny” will hold a special place in the hearts of his nieces and nephews. He will be missed so much. His loss is beyond any words.

Danny worked over 10 years at Johnston’s Propane in Fulton, and most recently he was employed at Owens-Illinois, in Auburn for the last 19 years.

Danny was an outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing, shooting, camping, and riding his Polaris RZR. He loved going on the annual Snirt Run. There may be a memory of him ATVing and ending up in a Beaver Pond. On his days off he would plan to go off on some adventure- and he could end up anywhere.

Danny was always the life of the party and was known for singing his favorite songs just a little bit loud. We’re going to miss that.
