To Mary, Pat, Danny Paul, Tony and all of the Dimauro family,
My heartfelt condolences to you on the passing of your father.
I came to know him to be a nice and loving person by virtue of his companionship with my mother, Rose, over the last decade, but, more importantly, really admired him for his common decency, loyalty, and overarching sense of responsibility to others.
I saw, even in the short time that I knew him, that Danny was a man who felt an obligation to serve and help others whether those closest to him in his family or the greater community in which he lived and thrived.
From his early life on the farm in Kent with his many siblings, his military service in the extreme heat of Arizona, courting and marrying his beloved wife and raising a family, working at the Chrysler factory in Cleveland building those cars he continued to drive for many years, traveling around the country with his wife in their motor camper or flying to other countries and lands , retiring to Florida with a new home and friends and helping to establish a strong Italian American club in Port St Lucie, Danny always showed his commitment to relationships, hard work, service and community.
He did all this while simultaneously smiling, laughing and whistling his way through the good and rough times. He truly was the eternal optimist, and I believe was rewarded for such with a long life full of love, family, and experiences which created great memories for him.
You should be so proud of your father as I know he was of all of you and your extended families, and I want to thank you for sharing him with me, my family and especially with my mother. He was a godsend to her over these last few years.
In my mind, there are two words that sum up Danny to all who knew him. Those two words are Love and Honor. He was a loving and honorable man right up to his last day. We should all be so lucky to be similarly defined.
