Obituary For Daniel J Reardon
It is with great sadness the family of Daniel Reardon announces his passing, peacefully in his sleep after a hard-fought battle with cancer, on Sunday June 6th, 2021, at the age of 76.
Dan was the beloved son of the late Frank and Norma (Purcell) Reardon and brother to the late Thomas Reardon.
He was also predeceased by his long-time love Kathy MacDonald. He is survived and lovingly remembered by his sister Norma Casella, her husband Tony and brother Allen Reardon and his wife Kathryn. Dan will forever be remembered by his children James Reardon, his wife Jeanine and Jeffrey Reardon and his wife Kim. Forever remembered as "Grampa" to Andrew, Joseph, Carly, Jeffrey, his wife Jaclyn, and Haley Reardon. Dan will also be fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. He will fondly be remembered by Dave MacDonald and Kristen MacDonald Roblero. Dan also leaves behind his beloved dog Herbie.
He served in the US Navy from 1965-1967 and when he came home returned to work at the Codman factory, on Plain Street, where he worked and remained there until it closed.
One thing Dan really loved to do was drive. He was always willing and available to give family and friends rides to appointments, shopping, the airport and the occasional ride just to get out and about.
Dan played baseball, position catcher, he joined town leagues and played till he was 40 when he said the ole back said enough. He loved all sports, especially when his grandchildren were involved and he was always there to cheer them on. When his granddaughters were cheerleaders and of course champions he made sure everyone watched the videos.
Later his great passion was cooking. Whether he was making his famous Sunday morning breakfasts or special of the day turkey or roast beef dinners, steaks, hamburgers and hotdogs, all were invited.
His, family, friends, and gang at the Eagles were his world. Dan was a proud Golden Eagle. He always looked forward to the trips planned to the Irish Village in Yarmouth, to Saratoga, and the Patriot games in Buffalo and loved sharing stories about them all. Every summer as soon as the sun came up, he could be found at his special spot at Nantasket Beach.
You will be deeply missed by all Dan, but at home you'll still be our Danny Boy!
