Daniel Ghent Obituary

Daniel E. Ghent

Madison-Daniel E. Ghent, 63, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 13, 2023, at Crouse Hospital.

Dan was born on December 4, 1959, in Rochester, the son of Thomas and Janet Bennett Ghent. He was raised in Morrisville and graduated from Morrisville Eaton High School. Dan furthered his education by graduating from BOCES with a degree in Auto Body Technology.  On July 22, 2006, at St. Thomas’ Church, Dan married Maureen Althaus.  He had worked numerous years in the body shop at Nye Auto Group. He had previously worked at McCredy’s Motors, Damian’s Automotive, and Skinner and Damulis Automotive Group.  He was a member of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church of Hamilton (twice a year). Dan loved to be outdoors. You could find Dan outside cooking on the grill or fixing anything he could find.  He and Maureen spent many hours bicycling, kayaking, and riding on his motorcycle. They loved and would often go on family ski trips. They also would go on as many cruises as they could afford traveling the Caribbean. Dan loved any moment that he could spend with his grandchildren.  He will be remembered by all, as kind, gentle, loving; and making each day brighter with his glowing smile.

He is survived by his beloved wife Maureen; his daughters: Stephanie Ghent Cordo, and her spouse Alison Cordo, and Chelsea Danielle Ghent; his brother Matthew Ghent; his stepchildren Christina Althaus, Jim Althaus, Nicole Walsh and her spouse Kevin Walsh.  Dan is also survived by his beloved grandchildren: Kristen Meadows, Molly Walsh, Edison Althaus, Annie Walsh, and Spencer Jan Cordo.

He was predeceased by his parents Thomas and Janet.
