Dan was the youngest of four children, born in Englewood NJ. He spent his childhood in Suffern N.Y. Dan excelled in school, and received his Bachelor’s Degree from Manhattan College. He settled in Vermont soon thereafter and had his own business providing moving and storage services. Danny loved both the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Catskill Mountains of New York. He especially loved being at the Dale family homestead in Tannersville N.Y. Playing golf was one of his passions. He travelled to Ireland and Scotland to play golf, participated in many tournaments, and always enjoyed a day on the golf course. Dan will be remembered for his huge smile and wonderful spirit. Danny brought love, laughter, and kindness to everyone he was with. Dan was grateful for the love he shared with his family and extraordinary friends.
Dan is survived by his loving mother Barbara Dale, sisters Maureen McFadden-Bernacchi (Peter) and Nancy McFadden (Chris Townsend), his brother Terence McFadden, niece Shannon Cunningham, and nephew James Cunningham. Dan was preceded in death by his father, Terence McFadden. Dan had many wonderful cousins, and dear friends, especially Elizabeth “Lizzy”, and Amy.
