Daniel J. Scanlon passed away peacefully on February 1, 2021 after a long and courageous battle with cancer and COPD. Dan graduated Westfield Vocational and went on to work for several decades as a special heavy equipment operator for the Westfield DPW. He was most recently employed as a mini-school bus driver for Lecrenski. Dan’s favorite past-times with his family included enjoying the outdoors, fishing, camping by the river, traveling, sippin’ wine on the Cape, craft brew tours in Vermont, making his family laugh—and nothing beat a cold Bud Light while hanging with his four-legged pal, Trixie. He was an active member at the local Italian Fraternal Club. Dan was pre-deceased by his parents and two brothers. Dan leaves behind his wife of 39 years, Pauline (Stucenski) Scanlon, and children- Dee and Huey, Laurie and Joe, Brian, Kim and Dan & Kristi and Justin. “Grumps”, as he was lovingly nicknamed by his grandchildren, also leaves behind- Krystina and Travis, Joey and Sarah, Blake, Brad, Noah, Aliya, JJ, Aliviya, Shelby, Dilan and Harper, as well as a great granddaughter, Darla. A Funeral Mass will be held for Daniel on Monday, February 8, 2021 at 10 AM in Holy Trinity Church, 335 Elm St. Westfield. Visiting hours will be held on Sunday from 12-2 PM in the Firtion Adams FS, 76 Broad St. Westfield. In lieu of flowers, donations in Dan’s honor may be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. www.firtionadams.com
