Daniel graduated from West Bridgewater Middle Senior High School in 2011. Following graduation, he attended Massasoit Community College then Cape Cod Community College. While working towards his degree in Healthcare Management, Daniel worked for several substance use disorders and outreach programs throughout the South Shore and Cape Cod. Throughout his work in the field of treatment, Daniel touched the lives of numerous people struggling with the battles of addiction. Daniel was known as a generous, loving and kind man who was always available to help anyone in need. Daniel was an avid fisherman who could be found on the Cape Cod canal day and night from spring to fall, after which time he would take his place in a tree stand as he loved hunting just as much.
