Daniel loved Anime, and loved to play video and computer games, very active in League of Legends and was known as TheSpiderQueen, SpiderLOL. His dream was to become a professional gamer. One of his gamer friends had this to say about Daniel. “From what I understand, League of Legends has lost a very talented player, if you were still here I know you would’ve made it into the pro circuit. I always hoped we could’ve met up in person again someday, just for the bunch of us to hang out. I’m sad to see you gone, buddy, your absence will definitely be noticed far and wide. I wanna believe that you’re still out there killing it and memeing hard.”

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his godfather, Gregory Pankowitz; godmother and aunt, Iva Marie Falcon; and aunts, uncles and cousins.

The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, July 18, at Andrews Market Street Chapel. A funeral Mass will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, July 19, at St. Mark Catholic Church with the Rev. Greg Spencer officiating.
