Henry “Hank” Dansak, formerly of McKeesport, passed away on February 20, 2024 in Abington, Pa. Hank was born on March 27, 1930, to Henry and Mary (Francis) Dansak. After his primary and secondary education, Hank enlisted in the United States Army. The skills he learned in the army became the basis for his lifelong career in radio, telephone, and satellite communication systems. This career of more than 50 years took him to countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and Central America where he built or repaired a variety of communication systems on military bases used by American Forces. He could talk for hours about the places he lived, the work he did and the people he met along the way.  Hank retired to Rosslyn, Pa. where he continued to hone his love for golf at Sandy Run Country Club, where he was proud to be one of its oldest members. 

Hank is survived by his wife of 54 years, Aree (Klawsamoot) Dansak of Bangkok, Thailand, his daughter, Jacqueline, his son, Daniel, and his grandson, Devon, of Philadelphia. He is also survived by one brother, Father Thomas Dansak, of Murrysville, Pa., his sisters-in-law Jean Dansak of North Huntingdon, Pa. and Melissa Dansak of Fair Hope, Al., nephews Ryan and David of North Huntingdon, and great-nieces Katherine, Anna, Emily and Grace of North Huntingdon.  Hank was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Daniel Dansak MD, and his brother Robert “Chick” Dansak.
