Much adored and devoted husband, father, and friend, Daniel John Lauritis passed away at his home in Huntington Beach surrounded by his wife, Carol, son, Mark (Gina), and daughter, Beth. Born to John and Anna Lauritis in Shenandoah, PA, he is survived by sisters Lorraine and Marianne. Dan worked for DuPont for 39 years and loved traveling, fishing, hunting, reading, and time with family. A sense of duty and loyalty distinguished Dan’s personal and professional life, but what most will remember is the twinkle in his eye, his mischievous grin, and his exceptional sense of humor. A beloved member of any community of which he was a part, Dan could be counted on to bring an abundance of wit, personality, and laughter to the table. Dan will be dearly missed by relatives and friends. A celebration of life will take place on Wed, 11/0712, at 10am at Sts. Simon and Jude Catholic Church, Huntington Beach followed by interment at Pacific View Memorial Park, Corona del Mar.
