Heart Emblem

TAUNTON---Daniel P. Shannon, 26, passed away unexpectedly at his home Thursday October 6th, 2016. Born in Stoughton, MA, Daniel was raised in Brockton, MA attended Saint Joseph's School in Holbrook, MA and eventually moved to Taunton, MA with his family, where he graduated from Taunton High School in 2008. He was a former altar server of eight years with Saint Joseph's Church in Holbrook, MA, where he also actively participated in sports within the community, including many travel teams for all sports, favoring baseball the most. Daniel, "Danny," like his brother, Brian, put everything he had into every baseball game, pitching no-hitters and stealing bases like no other. He put in great effort both on and off the field, and was never afraid to lend a helping hand to anyone interested in learning the sport. He was a sports enthusiast who enjoyed all New England sports and loved watching them with his friends and family. Danny was extremely funny, quick-witted, always willing to help anyone in need, and always cracking a smile or a quick joke to make someone smile on his or her worst days. Danny also worked vigorously with his father, Paul, for many years in the construction field where he crafted his knowledge and his experience and went on to work at Wheaton College. Danny also had a love for the family dog, Maiko, who he would take for walks and run around the yard with on a daily basis. He also actively participated in the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk yearly in memory of his late Aunt Marnie. He is survived by his father, Paul D. Shannon, of Quincy, his mother, Christine M. Shannon (Kiddy), of Stoughton, (late) brother, Brian R. Shannon, sister, Casey N. Shannon, and family dog, Maiko, all residing in Taunton. He is the grandson of (late) Richard and (late) Susan Shannon, of Quincy, and (late) Christine Kiddy, of Stoughton. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins. His funeral will be held at Saint Joseph's Church, 153 South Franklin Street, Holbrook, MA on Friday, October 14th at 12:00 p.m.(Noon.)
