Daniel Barden

Daniel Gerard Barden, of Sandy Hook, CT, born on September 27, 2005 in Pawling, NY, cherished son of Jacqueline and Mark, beloved brother of James and Natalie, left the physical world too soon on December 14th, 2012.

Daniel was the light of his family’s life. Adored and admired by all, Daniel touched the lives of all who knew him with his warmth, inspiring spirit of kindness and generosity, outgoing and affectionate nature, and his imaginative play.

Daniel loved spending time with his family, both immediate and extended, riding waves at the beach, playing the drums in a band with his brother James and sister Natalie, foosball, reading, and making s’mores around the bonfire with his cousins at his Papa’s house in Smallwood, NY. Daniel was on the Newtown soccer team and the Newtown Torpedoes swim team.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Daniel’s name to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, c/o Newtown Savings Bank, 39 Main Street, Newtown, CT 06470, or checks may be dropped off at any Newtown Savings Bank branch location. To donate online, go to http://newtown.uwwesternct.org
