Daniel, known as Danny to those who loved him had everything to look forward to. Two sons he loved dearly, and a grandson born just last week. Danny was excitedly planning a trip to Florida to meet his new grandson.
On Friday, November 20th, Danny was taken from all those who knew and loved him when he was struck and killed by a drunk driver who ran a red light while travelling 97 miles an hour. Danny was heading to work, obeying the green light when his life was ended abruptly by an individual who had no regard for the lives of others.
Although Danny was a resident of Bloomfield, NJ, he maintained an apartment in Queens NY, so he could be close to Queens Hospital where he worked as a Lab Technician. Danny was a skilled phlebotomist with a personality and bedside manner that earned him the love and respect of patients, coworkers, and everyone else he met, especially while helping those impacted by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Being a phlebotomist was a job he loved, and with his huge heart, he thrived in his chosen field.
When Danny was struck, he was taken to Queens Hospital where his shift was supposed to start in just minutes. Instead, Danny was pronounced dead by the very same people he worked with every day. There is a small measure of comfort that he was surrounded by his “second family” of coworkers who loved him when he passed.
In addition to the sons he adored, and new grandson, Danny leaves behind his loving father and two sisters who are devastated by this sudden and shocking loss.
Please help Danny’s family with his final expenses. No one so young expects to die suddenly, and any support will prevent additional strain on his already grieving family. Any donation as soon as possible will be appreciated.
His family is so grateful for all the love and care so many people have shown them.
