OBITUARY

Daniel Fix

October 20, 1951March 26, 2020

Daniel Fix, “Danny”, fulfilled his life’s work on March 26, 2020 at the young age of 68. Danny is survived in legacy by his loving and patient wife Madeline. Danny lived in The Villages, FL where he enjoyed every single day of his retirement from IBEW Local 25 electricians, Long Island.

Devoted father to Dawn, Kristofer, Jennifer and stepfather to Donna. Extremely proud Pop Pop to Anderson, Sean, Piper and Aidan. Survived by brother Ronald, sister Tammy, nieces, nephews, loving relatives and an amazing group of friends that he met up with every morning for coffee.

Danny was a tough Brooklyn born, cancer survivor, who lived life with intensity, purpose and precision. Everything he loved to do was done with extreme devotion and consistency. If it was worth doing, it was worth doing right. And by right, we mean “Danny’s Way”. Danny was a planner, an achiever, and a fierce competitor. You know those fathers that let their kids win so they feel good, that wasn’t Danny! There were no freebees. Danny taught his kids to fight for what they want, and that hard work and dedication brings the reward. He wasn’t a man of many words, but his actions spoke loudly and provided life lessons that built character and demonstrated perseverance. Danny handled life’s obstacles immediately, relentlessly and with great drive.

His OCD made him unique. Those near to him had the enjoyment of watching him fixate over menial things like how he parked his car in the driveway, which clearly needed to be checked three times before settling on the perfect alignment. His eyebrows made him stand out, his tube socks actually made their way back into style. His forehand was to be feared, he had no sense of direction, he was obsessed with punctuality and over analyzed travel logistics. Every meal he ate had to be “blasted” in the microwave.

Danny was a creature of habit and routine and was completely satisfied loving the same few things without deviation. Tennis, Dunkin’, pickleball, chocolates…canned soup, sweatshirts, spiral ham, Maddy mousse…hot tea, stick butter, Ivory soap, Hydrox cookies…Genesis, baseball caps, Young Frankenstein movie…cold beer, stock market, computer games, golfing days…egg sandwich, store bought treats, anyone who’ll rub his feet…bet the ponies, hot pastrami, beat the traffic and love his family.

To quote his favorite band, Genesis, Since I Lost You: It seems in a moment, your whole world can shatter Like morning dreams they just disappear Like dust in your hand falling to the floor How can life ever be the same 'Cause my heart is broken in pieces Yes my heart is broken in pieces Since you've been gone

I believe Danny and I went to the same church in Brooklyn together. If this is the Danny I knew you have my heartfelt sympathy on his passing. if you could please tell me if he got confirmed at St. Johns Lutheran Church on Prospect Ave. in Brooklyn. We shared a love of sports and played often. Again please excuse me if I have the wrong person.

I’ve known Danny from the time we were kids in Brooklyn. His mother and my mother were best friends. He was a very nice person and enjoyed golf and his family. He will be missed.

Danny and I often sat beside each other on the bench at the Pimlico pickle ball courts———Danny with his ever present cup of Dunkin coffee——-as we solved the great issues of the day including the national debt, the threat of North Korea, gossip, and the proper technique or lack thereof of the players hitting the ball in front of us. Danny was never at a loss for an opinion——-especially when it came to lawyers and doctors for which he spared me no quarter. Good natured and very “New Yark” is how I will remember Danny when I next view the his empty seat at the courts. Perhaps there will be some joy in knowing that the Almighty is getting up-to-date investing advice for eternity. Well done, Danny, well-done.

Dan, you always said I was there to bust your chops. We all know it was in jest. I considered you as a friend and Iwill miss you as will the group at DD. And you got your hole in one a lot sooner than I got mine. May God be' with you and provide a save haven for you for ever. And I hope Matty forgives for me taking the picture of you with the Trump sign.

Danny,

I was so saddened to learn of your passing. So many days and years at D&Ds laughing, sharing, arguing about sports, family, friends, golf and so forth. I always seem to sit next to you when I arrived, you were one of the first there and greeted me with your amazing smile, big laugh, and loudly shouting, Affleck as my golf cart pulled in! Such an honest and upright individual in all things. I will never forget that day at the executive golf course when you "lit it up!" and posted a one under par score. Made every putt, no gimmes for you. Such a fine sports accomplishment! You were a NY City boy and then moved to the Island. Always had that special accent. You love talking about your life love, Maddy and all she meant to you. You battled such a health issue with the lungs, but thankfully Dr. Novis was there for you and you pulled through. You seldom complained after a coughing episode. Danny, I always loved you in so many ways and will not soon forget your person. I know you loved the Lord and I trust you are now free of illness and enjoying the days in Heaven. Bless you Danny and Godspeed.

Affleck!

A good friend, Danny was always a pleasure to see. He was a very sincere and honest person. When Dan asked how you were, it was so clear that he was genuinely concerned and not just expressing a casual greeting. Whenever I stopped by Pimlico in the morning, it was to say hello to Danny. I will miss him.

Danny, you were a fun guy and also a fighter, You lived many years beyond what the doctors predicted. We enjoyed the golf, concerts. and dining. You and your wonderful wife, Maddy, were perfect for each other. Despite your challenges, you never complained. This is what made you special; this will be your legacy.
