Daniel was born at home in North Adams MA, on Thanksgiving Day, 1927 and died on November 18th, 2017 at the VT Veteran's Home. He graduated from Drury High School while in Naval training, ultimately serving as an Engineer aboard the USS Borie DD704. He served our country from 1945-1947 and was very proud to do so.

He began his working career at the Wall Streeter Shoe Company in North Adams, MA during high school. After he was discharged from the Navy, he drove dump truck, ran a bulldozer and detonated dynamite on construction jobs in the North Adams area. He began driving tractor trailer truck for Windsor Print Works of North Adams, MA and then for the Polygraphic in North Bennington, VT. He also drove truck for CB Morse and Block Company in Bennington. Later on, he moved to Litchfield Park AZ, and became a Maintenance Engineer at the Wigwam Resorts.

In 1975 he moved to Haven, Kansas. He worked for Collins Industries as a certified HUD Inspector and after retiring became a purchasing agent for Aladdin Heating and Cooling in Hutchinson, KS.

In 2005, he returned to Bennington to be closer to his children and grand-children.

He leaves behind a son and daughter-in-law: Daniel and Deborah Peirce of Florida, MA, a daughter and son-in law: Cynthia and Henry Thomayer of White Creek, NY, a step-daughter: Christine Mason of Bennington and an "adopted" daughter: Rachel Lundquist of Hot Springs, AK. He was predeceased by two sons, William D. and James B. Peirce. He leaves 8 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren and 4 nieces and nephews.
