Family of Daniel J. Driscoll

Daniel J. Driscoll, age 56, of East Greenwich, Rhode Island, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, December 30, 2020.  Born in New Bedford, Massachusetts, he was the son of Beverly (Oliveira) Driscoll and the late Retired Lieutenant Colonel Richard G. Driscoll.  For 20 years, he has been the cherished husband of Isabelle (Girard) Driscoll.

Early in his life, Dan’s celebrated soccer career earned him numerous awards, including a college scholarship to Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island.  For much of his professional life, he traveled the world as a designer in the textile industry.  In more recent years, he grew to love fishing and found a way to combine his love of the outdoors with his passion for creating beautiful artwork. The past year of Dan’s life was focused around reinventing himself as an artist, creating unique masterpieces that were only just beginning to reach a global audience.  His artwork has recently been featured by publications including “American Saltwater Guides Association” and “On The Water Magazine”.

Dan was a son, brother, husband, father, uncle, entrepreneur, artist, provider, and friend to those in his life.  He lived his life with a passion and turned that passion into his beautiful, artistic creations which will be cherished eternally.  He wore a stoic shell, but, at his core, he was a fun-loving man who could find humor in the bleakest of days.  His larger than life personality could brighten any room.  He will be missed by all those who knew him, who loved him, and who were blessed to share this life with him.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by four children: Lili, Donovan, William, and Antoine.  The funds from this account will benefit the family, after the sudden and unexpected passing of Dan.  Dan’s wife, Isabelle, will be the executor of these funds, to assist them during this difficult time and to help set up college and lifelong funds for their children.

We want to thank you for being a part of Dan’s life and legacy.
