Obituary for Daniel Thomas Fitzgerald

Daniel Thomas Fitzgerald, 75, of Blue Bell, PA passed away on January 6, 2018. He was the beloved husband of Madeleine for over 50 years. Dan, who grew up in Mount Airy, PA, graduated from Cardinal Dougherty High School and was awarded a full scholarship to play basketball at Temple University. Coached by Harry Litwack, he was one of the “five iron men” and a leading scorer and rebounder. After playing for Temple, Dan played for the Washington Generals and later coached at Saint Gabriel’s Hall, where he led the team to a championship. He held undergraduate and graduate degrees from Temple and was the Director of Continuing Education at the Pennsylvania State University’s Abington Campus for over 35 years. He was also a counselor for 30 years at the Intercommunity Action’s Behavioral Health Division, a testament to his passion for helping those in need. Dan was an avid sports fan and loved spending time with his family. Along with his wife, he is survived by his three children: Timothy Fitzgerald (Wendy), Mark Fitzgerald (Paige), Danielle James (Mark); five grandchildren: Catherine, Sean, Caroline, Blake, Shannon; and his sister Marie McEvoy. He was predeceased by his sister Dolores McManus and his brother James Fitzgerald. Relatives and friends are invited to his Funeral Mass on Friday, January 12, 2018 at 11 AM at St. Helena Church, 1489 Dekalb Pike, Blue Bell, PA 19422.
