He was born on August 4th, 1943 in Cleveland to the late Thomas and Agnes O'Brien.

Daniel was a very loving husband to Judy A. (nee Di Vincenzo)  and a fun, loving and caring father to his 3 children,

Kathy Gyongyos (Marty) (both deceased).  He was a wonderful and "Life of the Party" uncle to all of his many

nieces and nephews.  Daniel will be truly and deeply missed by many, but one special person who has been

there by his side along with his wife is his loving sister-in-law Shirley Gorze`  (Lou, deceased). Also his

brother-in-law Ernest Di Vincenzo (Joan) will miss him deeply as well.

Daniel was a proud Veteran, serving as a Radar Man for the United States Navy. He served on the USS Mississinewa and
