Dan's Funeral Expenses

Danny Abbascia was a lifelong resident of Worcester and died tragically Sunday, October 7, 2018 at home. As the country is experiencing wide spread overdoses ranging from white collar to blue collar working individuals, it shows no prejudice in its taking of life…Our Danny was one of  this disease’s victims that left him and his family unprepared for his untimely death.

Dan was mechanically inclined and loved to fix cars and trucks, and was a tractor trailer driver for many years. His passion, though was helping people and developed a side business as a compassionate caretaker growing medical marijuana and providing it to those terminally ill or with debilitating diseases to either help with their pain or provide an appetite for someone with no hope. His sister-in-law Judy was one of those he compassionately helped with the insidious disease of cancer.  Dan had such a passion in always experimenting to create different strains of oils and edibles to provide what a person needed without the THC high effect.  Dan worked exclusively with a doctor to provide what his patients needs were.  Everyone that knew Dan would tell you of his kind and giving nature He would help anyone anyway he could.

He enjoyed summer vacations at the Cape or Maine with his family.   He was an avid golfer and movie buff. On a snowy day you would find him with his family watching movies all day with his nephew Anthony and niece Angie, His all-time favorite being the Godfather.

The Family asks, instead of flowers or any other gifts please consider helping us defray some of our funeral expenses with a donation to help Danny, family, and friends provide him his final resting place.
