Daniel A. Szumal , Age: 59
June 29, 1962 -- June 03, 2022

Daniel A. Szumal, 59, passed away unexpectedly on June 3rd after completing his radiation and chemo treatments for throat cancer. Dan was a graduate of the class of 1980 at Maine South High School and worked for Subaru Motor Company for over 35 years, some of that time as a manager.   

Dan is survived by his sister Carolyn and predeceased by his mother, Maria and his father Daniel. He is also survived by many cousins.  

Dan excelled at many sports, playing baseball, hockey and soccer during his high school career.  His teammates called him “zoom” and describe him as the consummate teammate:  a respected leader who always took time to share an encouraging word with a teammate.  He loved to play golf with his friends and co-workers. His favorite place to visit and golf was Kauai, Hawaii.  

Dan was a man of few words and mischievous smile.  He will be greatly missed by his sister, his classmates, his fellow employees and his customers who loved him.  

Services will be private.
