Born in Philadelphia to Italian immigrants, Charlie and Maria, Daniel Carangi was the proprietor of Dan's Fruit & Produce Store in South Philadelphia.
He opened his store at Chadwick and Moore streets in 1951. "He learned the business the hard way, working as a street huckster, selling fruit and produce from the back of a horse-drawn wagon", recalled his son-in- law, Rick Lees.
Carangi retired in 1976, but the business remained a family operation, owned and operated 6 1/2 days a week by his son, Anthony.
Carangi's daughter, Rita, described her father as a quiet man, a listener as opposed to a talker, a Phillies fan, and a man with a spiritual side, active for the past 37 years with the Men of Malvern.
In addition to son, Anthony, and daughter, Rita, Carangi is survived by his wife of 54 years, Helen; two granddaughters and two grandsons.
Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, 17th and Morris streets, Philadelphia.
