The Cancer Telethon is in mourning at the loss of its Troubadour, Danny Farole, who died away not too long ago. Danny was known as the Godfather of the American Cancer Society Telethon. Watch as Danny Farole loses his fight against cancer after a protracted period of treatment.
How did Danny Farole pass away?
The following is an excerpt from the statement that Sheriff Nick Chimienti posted on his Facebook page to convey his sorrow at the passing of his dear friend Danny Farole:
This man had a love for all people. My dear friend Danny Farole passed away peacefully late yesterday evening, and it is with a sad heart that I have to break the news to you. He sang at our “Spaghetti Dinner” in 2017. Danny was the most talented strolling minstrel there ever was. He sang Italian melodies while playing the guitar and accordion.
Danny was a lovely man who dedicated his time to helping others on a weekly basis by volunteering at senior centres and hospitals in the coal region area where he resided. Danny was a strong advocate for law enforcement, as seen by the fact that he always remembered to mention either the Pennsylvania State Police or the Dauphin County Sheriff’s Office.
Danny was a one-of-a-kind individual. Whenever we had a chat together, he always made sure to inquire about how everyone in my family was doing. That was followed by his talks with his wife, children, and grandkids, in which he expressed his affection for them.
Danny was incredibly proud of his family, and he never missed an opportunity to brag about their achievements to me. You lived your life to the fullest for ninety years, Danny parole, and fulfilled your purpose here on earth. You may now give a live performance of the song “Mama” that you wrote about paradise.
Who was Danny Farole?
Farole has made it a priority over the past 15 years to contribute to the fund-raising efforts of the telethon held by the Carbon-Tamaqua unit. The town of Nesquehoning is where he and his wife, Peggy make their home. Danny has participated in live broadcasts of forty-two out of the American Cancer Society’s forty-two telethons.
In 1976, the year that his mother lost her battle with illness, Farole first started volunteering for the telethon. He said, “You have no clue the breadth of my affection for Buddy Wychulis. It was unfathomable.” He has a remarkable amount of skill.
On September 21, Wychulis died away, and just a few days earlier, on September 19, Farole lost his wife, Margaret. He stated that Buddy was the first person to bring flowers to the hospital when his wife was being treated there.
He encouraged the volunteers to keep fighting and to demonstrate love for one another during the conflict. Cheryl Martuscelli, Wychulis’s daughter, said that her father could frequently treat anything except for cancer, which she said was the “one thing he couldn’t repair.” According to her, Wychulis was determined to conquer cancer. She described him as “always the performer, on and off the stage.”
