Daniel F. Falls
Daniel F. Falls, 64, of New Milford, beloved husband of Betty (Page) Falls, who was his soul mate and true love, passed away at 1:15 a.m., Thursday, August 24, 2017, due to injuries as a result of a motorcycle accident. Danny was born on June 2, 1953, in Danbury, son of Frank Falls of Bethel and the late Dolores Falls. He was a graduate of Bethel High School, where he also played football.
After working with his father for a few years he decided it was time to expand his father's and grandfather's business and in that came F & D Falls Excavating Co, which was Incorporated in 1981. The operation turned into a successful business. Six years ago he started a home heating oil company known as Falls Fuel LLC. He volunteered as a coach for the Bethel Pop Warner football league during his son's childhood and never missed one of his son's Pop Warner or high school games. Danny loved the ocean and would enjoy nothing more than being on a boat. His motto was work hard and play hard, and that's what he did. Danny loved the New York Giants and Yankees. His other favorite sport goes hand in hand with his love of country music and that was Nascar. He attended the Dayton 500 on several occasions. Throughout his younger years he had the classics, a 70 Chevelle & 1957 Chevy, and a few others. Danny loved to joke around others. He was a tough guy but had such a big heart. He was always thinking of others, and would do anything for anyone. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He loved his dog Balou and Betty's dog Wiley. Danny became a grandfather on May 11, 2016 and that was a very special day for him as he was so proud of his son. Another special day for him was the day he was married to his wife Betty. On August 16, 2014 they were married in Antigua and had an amazing time as they were so happy. When Danny and Betty could manage to get away they would often visit Cape Cod and Florida where they shared many memories together, as well as with other family and friends. Danny will be missed and never forgotten as the ocean will never be the same without him.
In addition to his wife, Betty, and his father, Frank, he will be sadly missed by his son, Christopher Falls and wife Kimberley; his granddaughter, Mya Falls; three sisters, Nancy Falls DeSocio, Doreen Vanvalkenburgh and husband Paul, Donna Ferrante and husband Orlando; four stepchildren, Adrienne, Chris, Bill & Kevin Wakeman; six nephews, Brandon & Ryan DeSocio, Orlando, Dillion, Zach & Austin Ferrante.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, September 1 at 11:00 a.m. at the Church of St. Mary, 26 Dodgingtown Road, Bethel. Burial will follow in St. Mary Cemetery. Calling hours will be Thursday, Aug. 31, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Church of St. Mary.
