Gil was an absolute gentleman. He was my first cousin. Unfortunately we really didnt get to know each other until later years, as his sisters, Jean and Jane. I'm sorry for your loss Jane and Jean. He cared so much for you. And to his children , I am so sorry! I want to leave you with this..Numbers 6:24-26 "The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you and give you peace"

While serving as a lifeguard at Niskayuna Garden Apartments, Gil was a frequent visitor at the pool. He would share stories of his hikes in the Adirondack. I was an impressionable sixteen year old at the time and listened to every word, eager to follow in his footsteps. He was always incredibly kind and thoughtful. RIP Gil.

I was a student of Mr Dannenburg's 6th grade class at Forts Ferry in 1981. My sister had him 3 years before me and always spoke so highly of him,and I was so happy when I got him as my teacher in 6th grade. He was so much fun in class and was so popular. One day he took me to run an errand to Shaker High and we spent about an hour together driving there and getting sodas, and we had a great conversation. He was a nice man and one of my favorite teachers. For some reason I thought of him this morning and googled his name and just saw he passed away. My condolences to his family.

I was a student of Mr Dannenberg's 6th grade class at Forts Ferry School in 1973. It was my favorite year of school, mostly because Mr Dannenberg was so much fun. He did many things differently than most teachers. I remember breaking my leg that year and couldn't go to recess, so he stayed in the classroom every lunch period, ate lunch and played eraser tag with me..chasing me with an eraser on his head, squatting while he chased me around the desks while I was in a wheelchair. He was one in a million. My sympathy to family and friends.

My friendship with Gil and his wife, Katherine, began in 1964, when I first met Katherine ("K") at the Montessori school where both our daughters attended. K and I, both teachers in the Schenectady School System, bonded instantly, and were joined by fellow teacher, Gil, in a life-long friendship. My husband and I shared many happy times and memories with Gil and K. I taught summer school with Gil in the 1960s and 1970s, and greatly enjoyed his book, Candid Classroom. My husband and younger daughter hiked the Adirondack trails with Gil a few times. Hiking was a favorite hobby for Gil, and he accomplished many miles toward his goal of traversing the entire length of the Adirondack Trail.
Gil was a talented organist and a dedicated teacher. His hearty laughter and good sense of humor provided me with many laughs, as we shared jokes and teacher-student memories. After I moved to another state, Gil and I kept in touch with occasional phonecalls. We exchanged birthday and Christmas cards every year, and Gil always wrote messages in German, in which language he was fluent.
I shall greatly miss Gil and our friendship. He was a man of faith, so I am comforted in knowing he is happy now in his next life.

To the Dannenberg Family,
We moved next door to Gil and K. and family in December 1978. We were welcomed by them and always enjoyed our encounters with all of the family. Gil was always so very friendly and upbeat. In recent years we only saw him from time to time, but it was always a pleasure. He and Graham often talked about the Adirondacks and Graham and he, many years ago, hiked together. We know he will be missed and we send our condolences to all of you.
Karen and Graham Holmes and Family

My name is Paul Moore and Mr. Dannenberg (we never called him Gil) was one of my teachers at Central Park, then a junior high school. Although that was well over 60 years ago, I remember him with great fondness and affection.
He never seemed to have a bad day, and he made sure his students didn't either. This picture captures him perfectly - just as I remember. Over the years I've had the good fortune of running into several of my former teachers and was able to tell them the positive and lasting impact they had on my life. Sadly, I never bumped into Mr. Dannenberg, but at least his family knows of one of I'm sure many, many that achieved more in life as a result of his patience and guidance. God Bless him, and may he rest in peace.

I was devastated to hear of my dear uncle's passing. I will never forget his joyful spirit and how he always made my sister Suzie and I feel welcomed and loved. I know he has passed to The Lord's loving arms and although his human journey is over, his spirit will live on forever. Blessings to my family during this difficult time.

Hey Dad! Im in your house, you're not here but you ARE, I KNOW YOU ARE! I miss you, your laugh your old stories and the 52 years of wonderful lessons and memories. Driving around our "hangouts", making the drive to see you up and down 87 is now surreal. This is the North country, you're country! I will share all this with your grandkids always and they will with theirs. I'm sure you're making the angels and your predeceased family all laugh at your humor and smile at your organ playing!! Watch over us, We will meet again. You were a great dad and man and you touched hundreds and hundreds in such a wonderful way. Goodbye for now, May the Lord keep you warm and comfortable. Give Beth and Bama and all our people up there a hug for me. Talk to ya soon DAD. Thank you

I remember as a little girl you coming to visit my mom Debbie, your niece, in Indiana. She loved you so and I was so little and always anticipated your visits into town. You were a great man and will be remembered fondly Uncle Gil.
God speed and RIP,
