He was born in Cologne, Germany. He graduated college in Germany as a mechanical engineer. He arrived in the United States in 1929 during the Holocaust. He told stories of seeing Adolf Hitler marching in the streets of Germany with the German Army. Mr. Dannenberg’s father was a veterinarian for the German Army treating the horses. This is how Paul’s father stayed alive. Paul shared the same love of animals as his dad. Mr. Dannenberg was then drafted by the United States Army. He attended night school in Queens, New York to learn English fluently.
Mr. Dannenberg was survived by his long-time dear and loving friend, Hermine Hammer for the past 19 years. He has a step-daughter from his former marriage, Margarita Pizaro in Guayaquil, Ecuador. He is also survived by step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren. He will be missed by all who knew him.
