Somerville/Medford Remembering Daniel J. Murnane

Daniel J. Murnane, age 50, passed away unexpectedly at Lowell General Hospital on Friday, May 26, 2023 surrounded by so many members of his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Kelly (Kokolis) Murnane, with whom he had shared 20 wonderful years of marriage.

Born in Cambridge, MA on October 19, 1972, he was a son of the late Charles Murnane and Mary (McGlinchey) Murnane. Danny graduated from Somerville High School, Class of 1991. He then went on to own a delivery route for Pepperidge Farm until his passing. Danny worked hours that allowed him to balance his work and family life, and he relished in the fact that he was always there for his children and wife.

At his core, Danny was a true gentleman. The depths that he cared for not just his immediate family, but his large extended family as well, could never be questioned. He was kind, caring, and compassionate, and never missed an opportunity to give someone he loved a helping hand, or new nickname. Whether he was sharing an espresso martini with his loving wife, or sharing wisdom with his children regarding life, manners, and confidence, Danny was always the first one there for the people he loved.

Reading; his siblings, Mary Beth Hunt and her husband Bob of Reading, Charles Murnane and his wife Denise of N.
