Daniel Joseph Lord
October 23, 1947 – April 26, 2021
Daniel J. Lord, aged 73, passed away on April 26, 2021.
He was born in Waterville, Maine, the son of Joseph and Catherine Lord. He attended Lawrence High School in Fairfield, Maine and the University of New Hampshire where he acquired a host of lifelong friends. Dan traveled often and lived in many places before lighting in Concord where he finally found his home and a family of like minded compatriots. He was a talented landscaper and handyman. He was the property manager at the Patriot Building in Concord for many years.
Dan was blessed with boundless energy and an outgoing personality. He liked nothing better than to enter a room full of strangers. He would emerge elated some time later having acquired a multitude of new acquaintances; some of whom would doubtless become close friends.
Dan (BanDan) was a cornerstone of the Recovery Community in Concord. In his 33 years of sobriety, he changed many lives. He has left a hole that will be hard to fill. Those who loved him will do their best to carry on his work. He would have wanted that.
He is survived by his grieving family; his sister Fran Corriveau and her spouse Elaine Reall, his brother John Lord, his brother Raymond Lord and wife Carolyn and his sister Mary Tracy and husband Keith Harris. He is also survived by the many people he met along the way who will always remember his kind and loving heart. A celebration of his life will be held at 25 Church Street, Concord on June 12, around noon. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the favorite charity he worked so hard for: Steve's Place, P.O. Box 446, Concord, NH 03302. Blessings on us all.

I am sad because I thought I would be able to call my friend anytime to say hello. Yesterday, I found out I was wrong.
I knew Daniel as "ban-dan". I met him in 2004 and no matter how much time went by without seeing him, I got the same smile and hug when we met again. I watched him work his charismatic presence so many times when he would be there for anyone who needed him. He was an amazing roll model and made a huge impact on many people by practicing what he preached- an Attitude of Gratitude. He had an un-matched presence with that laugh, smile, generosity, dedication, honorable nature and ... of course, bandanas- lots of bandanas which I never did see him without. May God be with all of Dan's family and friends as we morn his passing and celebrate the awesome life he was able to find for himself and share unconditionally with so many. Peace my friend, I'll miss you a lot.

Dan was a great friend to me and so many in the community. He will be remembered as as a loving Godfather and mentor. I have a lovely portrait photo some years back I am having such trouble locating but his he will remain the same in my memory, giving patient caring and omnipresent.

I met Dan when I started working at the Patriot Building about 16 years ago. Shortly afterward, I was surprised to see him at a show at the Audi accompanying an elderly woman I knew. That’s when I learned of all of the kindness and caring and companionship Dan showed for his elderly friends. He was a truly unique, trusted and caring individual. I last spoke to Dan less than a month ago when he was at the patriot building. I’ll miss you, Dan. You have a great soul.

This man was one of the most kind hearted and genuine people I have ever come across. He saved my life and helped countless others. His passing is nothing short of a true tragedy. There will be a massive void within our recovery community and hearts. You won't soon be forgotten my friend. Rest in sweet peace Dan !
