Daniel Joseph Alfieri, passed away at his home in Marlborough on May 6, 2023 with his loving daughters by his side. He was 72 years old. Born in Norwich on March 4, 1951, he was a son of the late Joseph and Theresa (LaRowe) Alfieri. Daniel grew up in Norwich and graduated with the class of 1969 from NFA. He went on to study at Mitchell College and then went on to earn his Masters at Southern Connecticut State University. He had a diverse career as an environmental and safety engineer and also as an OSHA safety inspector. He worked for Stanadyne, Electric Boat and several other companies before finally retiring. Daniel raised his family in Hebron where he was a member of the Republican Town Committee, a former member of the Board of Education, and a Communicant at the Church of the Holy Family before re-locating to Marlborough. In his free time, Daniel could usually be found boating on the ocean or with his toes in the sand somewhere. He was a life member of Walker’s Dock in Stonington where he entertained many friends and family members while making lifelong memories of clamming, scuba diving and boat driving lessons with his grandchildren. His loss will be mourned by many especially his children and their spouses, Melissa (Daniel) Jordan of Marlborough, Stephani (Patrick) Whalen of Morristown, NJ; grandchildren, Aubree, Grace, and Delaney Jordan, Dylan and Benjamin Whalen; brother, Jeffrey (Debbie) Alfieri of Norwich; niece, Jenna (Terrell) Williams of North Hollywood, CA; and numerous extended family members and friends, including his beloved cat Mittens. Funeral services will be held privately according to his wishes. The Aurora-McCarthy Funeral Home of Colchester has been entrusted with care of his arrangements. Donations in his memory may be made to Boston Children’s Hospital www.bostonchildrens.childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org, or to the charity of one’s choice.
