HANCOCK - Daniel Smyth, 59, of Hancock died at his home Oct. 17, 2012.
He was born Dec. 26, 1952, in Newton, Mass., the son Robert A. Smyth and Phyllis Daniels Smyth.
Daniel lived in Wellesley, Mass., before moving to Hancock in the 1970s. He worked as the caretaker at Rosewood Glen Farm in Hancock, where he passionately cared for the farm and the horses.
