On Tuesday, December 8, 2020, Daniel Siniawa, loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away at age 88.

Daniel was born on March 13, 1932, in Justus, Pennsylvania, to Peter and Hazel Siniawa. He was a graduate of Scott High School, Class of 1950. Daniel was formerly married to Barbara(Middleton) Siniawa. They raised four daughters, Kathy Troiani, Barbara Zinsky, Pamela Davis, and Brenda Makala, and two sons, Dale Siniawa and Daniel P. Siniawa. Daniel was presently married to Diane (Keeler) Siniawa. He enjoyed two step-daughters, Amy Niewinskiand Heidi Thomas Keller, and step-son, Master Sergeant Paul Thomas.

From a young age, Daniel had an entrepreneurial spirit, with roots in demolition, excavating, and paving business established in 1952, and soon becoming a visionary leader in commercial real estate development in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Daniel is perhaps best known for the development of the sprawling retail and commercial hub along Route 6 in DicksonCity.  While Daniel was driven by his work, his greatest passion in life was his family. When not at work, Daniel was likely with his children and/or grandchildren, often dining together at various restaurants and ice cream parlors in the area. Daniel was affectionately known to his family’s the Donut Man, faithfully arriving at family gatherings with pastries in hand.

Daniel was a natural storyteller, captivating listeners with both imaginative storylines, as well as stories from his youth. He was also a compassionate man with a heart for helping people in need.  Daniel enjoyed listening to opera, long drives, cuddling with his dogs, and was an avid reader.

Daniel is survived by his wife Diane, former wife Barbara, five children, three step-children, twenty-one grandchildren, and seventeen great-grandchildren.

A celebration of life event will be held in the Spring Season. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Griffin PondAnimal Shelter or Friends of the Poor. Daniel’s family is grateful for the wonderful care provided by the staff at Elmcroft Senior Living and Hospice of the Sacred Heart.
