Jeffrey P. Daniello passed away in the early the morning of March 19, 2020, peacefully surrounded by family.

Born to Marion (Estes) and Victor P. Daniello in Rockland Nov. 27, 1957, he spent his life in the Rockland area. Jeff had several professions, but found his calling in two. He worked as a plumber’s apprentice for Gordon Benner, who he thought of as a father.

He also drove trucks, hauling everything from mail to seafood. His last employer was Patterson Paving. Jeff’s family would like to thank the Patterson family for their caring and generosity during this time.

Winter was Jeff’s favorite time. He enjoyed snowmobiling with friends and sharing his love of ice fishing with his children, Amy and Mike, who have many memories to cherish of every lake between Chickawaukie and East Grand. Off season, he also enjoyed smelting and fly fishing. Gary Lewis and Chipper Richards often accompanied Jeff on many fishing adventures.

Jeff was predeceased by his father, Victor; mother, Marion, and his step-father Clarence (Mike) Morse. Also by brothers Victor Jr., Fred, David and Dennis along with his infant sister Louise.

He is survived by his children Michael Daniello and Amy Winchenbaugh and their mother Judy; two grandchildren Wyatt and Walker; three brothers Ronald Daniello, Alan Daniello and Timothy Morse along with sisters-in-law Joyce, Gerri, and Holly; many nieces and nephews, and his son-in-law Brett, who was like a son.

He thought the world of his two grandchildren, Wyatt and Walker. Wyatt says of his grandfather, “he would always remind us how proud he was of his grandchildren. He was a constant comfort in hard times and he left an impact on our lives we will not soon forget.”

Family was very important to Jeff. He always enjoyed the Fourth of July family cookouts as a chance to watch his nieces and nephews grow along with friendly bickering with his brothers as they reminisced over many memories of growing up in a large family.

A celebration of life will be at a later date due to current coronavirus restrictions. Memories and remembrances can be posted to his Facebook page.
