Daniel Dragonetti

Born
Died

I miss everything about him. I miss his laugh. I miss his food. I miss the way his hair looked after he woke up. I miss hearing him play guitar and sing. I miss his wit and jokes. I miss our camping and lake trips. I miss the comfort and safety of sitting next to him. I miss the way he always smelled either like a co-op/organic coffee or one of his 75 colognes he collected. There is nothing I don't miss about him outside of his struggles.

Tell us about your loved one.

Daniel Dragonetti was the kindest, most caring, gentle, talented (I could go on and on) person I have ever known. He cared for others more than he cared for himself. He was a wonderful singer/song writer, an incredible chef, and the best friend you could have. He brought a lot of joy to those around him even during his darkest times.

Tell us about Daniel's struggle with addiction

Daniel's addiction started in high school and continued off and on through his adult years. He was pushing four years clean at his time of death. Addiction is something has to constantly be monitored and kept in check, and unfortunately his moment of weakness cost him his life.

What made Daniel smile?

Good music, good food, and making fun of things in life. I called him "Captain Hindsight" because every time something went wrong he would say some funny way it could have been avoided. The mountains. I will never look at the Blue Ridge Parkway again without him in my mind. He felt a calmness and at home when he stared at them.
