Daniel J. Gritzmacher passed away on Friday August 4, 2023.  Born in Lockport on August 16, 1937, he was the son of the late Albert D. and Frances (Geser) Gritzmacher. Daniel was a DeSales Catholic High School alumni. Daniel served in the National Guard and worked in production for Harrison Radiator.  After he retired, Daniel developed an interest in woodworking. He was an avid Yankees fan and in his later years never missed watching a game. He was also a fan of the Buffalo Sabres and the Buffalo Bills. He enjoyed listening to Bluegrass and Country music. When Daniel’s grandchildren came to visit, his skill and competitive side came out for a round of croquet.
