DiNATALE, Daniel Christopher
DiNATALE - Daniel Christopher 25, died October 5, 2016 in Longboat Key, FL after an over four-year heroic battle with cancer. He was born October 7, 1990 in Amsterdam, NY to his loving parents Charles and Susan DiNatale. He is survived by his loving parents and his loving brother Thomas.
Danny graduated in 2009 from Orchard Park High School in New York. He was blessed with unusual art talent. Art was the bedrock of his aspiration to become a graphic designer. In furtherance of his chosen career, he attended Savannah College of Art and Design. Sadly, his illness prevented him from fulfilling his dream. Dan was a caring person who greatly valued his friends and family. He had a keen and irreverent sense of humor that did not abandon him even as he faced the realities of his disease. He was passionate about cars (the faster, the better), reading and cooking. He was so appreciative of all those he never met that gave blood. There will be a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Mary's Star of the Sea Church, 4280 Gulf of Mexico Dr., Longboat Key, FL on Thursday, October 13 at 10:30 AM.
