Daniel Shattuck Obituary

Holyoke, MA – Daniel M. Shattuck, 55, passed away peacefully on February 22, 2024, surrounded in love by his family and friends.   Dan was born on July 15, 1968 to Chester and Jean Shattuck.  He is survived by his mother, Jean, his siblings, Beverly Farnham, Robert Shattuck and Sean Shattuck, and his son, Jacob Shattuck, 26, currently residing in Worcester, MA.

Danny grew up in Easthampton, MA and graduated from Easthampton High School in 1986. He was the goalie for the Easthampton Eagles varsity hockey team.  He attended Holyoke Community College where he concentrated his studies in theatre, playing leading roles in several theatrical productions.  Dan was a poet with several published works, and he continued to share his profound words and wisdom throughout his life, impacting the hearts and minds of many.  As a young man, Danny lived and worked for a time at Yellowstone National Park where he fell in love with the “Big Sky” country of the American West.  A hard worker since youth, Dan had a handy-man business and worked as a lineman for Verizon phone company until his illness became prohibitive. Dan loved German Shepherds, the Yankees and Marlboro Reds. Throughout his life, he was the definition of a reliable friend and family member, the first to selflessly volunteer for helping with any home improvement project or childcare needs; always concerned with the welfare of others and never with his own significant challenges.  Above all else, Dan was a loving and committed father to his son, Jacob--a love that drove his irrepressible will to battle brain cancer for 24 years.
