Prior to his long and successful career in the Valhalla School District where he taught Phys Ed, Irv worked for the City Of Rye and later the City of Mt. Vernon, Parks & Recreation Dept.

Irv attended his 50th High School reunion in 1991. Six months after their graduation on June 24, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor plunging the United States into the war that many had viewed as a European concern.

Reminiscing recently several class members said the US entry into the war came as a shock. The war had not loomed darkly over the normal activities of the close knit class. ”It was a fun time we had no big cares” said Irving Danzig a retired physical education teacher who returned to live in Rye in I989 “We didn't get involved in any of the poiltics involved with Chamberlin or Churchill or any of that. We were concerned with getting grades, to go to school, with football games"

Irving Danzig, of Ocala FL, formerly of Rye and N. White Plains NY, passed away on Monday, August 13, 2007 at Legacy House in Ocala, Florida.

Irv was survived by his wife, Ruthie; his loving daughters, Amy of Ocala and Beth Boettigheimer (Tom) of N. White Plains. His much-loved grandchildren, Rachel and Jeffrey Boettigheimer; brother, Fred (Edith) of Eastchester, nieces, nephews and countless friends will all miss him deeply.
