Daniel Fasci, 82, a lifelong resident of Bristol, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Thursday May 10, 2018. He was born on May 7, 1936 in Bristol a son of the late Antonino and Gertrude (Pellerin) Fasci.

After graduating from Bristol High School in 1954, he spent four years in Flint, Michigan and graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree from General Motors Institute. The next 38 years were spent as an Engineer at New Departure-Hyatt. Daniel was a member of the Jaycees and was an avid Yankees fan; he was even able to watch them beat the Red Sox the day before he passed. His love of cameras and his skill at photography resulted in many cherished photographs.

Enjoying an early retirement at 55 years of age, he and his wife Lovey were able to travel extensively. One of their favorite destinations was Italy. His other big hobby was anything electronic, especially computers.  For over 10 years, he volunteered with his wife at Imagination Museum and Bristol Hospital.
