GWINN, Mich. - Daniel Joseph Armatti, 67, of 215 N. High Street, Gwinn, passed away peacefully on April 15, 2013, under the care of Lake Superior Hospice and with his family by his side at his brother and sister-in-law's home in Gwinn.
Daniel was born March 31, 1946, in Marquette to Battista "Bacco" and Edith (Storti) Armatti and graduated from Gwinn High School. He was more of a private person, but whenever you were around him his smile was contagious and his personality was fun loving.
Daniel was blessed with a beautiful daughter, Tammy, and granddaughter, Sophia, and his home was filled with pictures of them both.
He spent a lot of time at his mom's home and would always make her laugh with his comical ways. He was part of a close, caring, loving family and will be missed by all who knew him.
Surviving are his mother, Edith Armatti; daughter, Tammy (Dave) Marier of Michigamme; granddaughter, Sophia Marier; 3 brothers: Neil Armatti, Patrick (Jean) Armatti and James (Tara) Armatti, all of Gwinn; 2 sisters: Patricia "Tisha" (George) Keefer and Vicki (Georg) Sibley, both of Gwinn; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father in 2001; brother, Jerome "Jerry" Armatti in 2009; sister-in-law, Louise Armatti; and niece, Terry Armatti.
Interment will be in the Gwinn Cemetery, with a graveside service to be held later this spring. Condolences may be expressed online at koskeyfuneralhome.com.
