FRAMINGHAM – Daniel J. Viall, 61, was unexpectedly called home to the Lord on Saturday, November 20, 2021.
Born on December 10, 1959, in Framingham he was the son of the late Mary T. (O’Malley) Viall and Sumner W. Viall Jr. Awaiting his arrival in heaven are his parents, his eldest brother James Viall and his younger brother Thomas Viall.
In addition to his devoted wife of 40 years, Sue K. (Day) Viall he leaves his loving children; son Daniel T. Viall of Shrewsbury, daughter Lindsey M. (Viall) Williams and her husband Jason of Oxford; grandchildren Jaxon and Vivian Sue; siblings, Robert Viall and wife Jan of Sandwich, Kathryn LaPointe of Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Along with many nieces and nephews of whom he was so proud of.
All of those that knew Dan Viall could tell you that he never met a stranger, he treated everyone he met like family. If you were in a time of need, he would be the first one to invite you to Thanksgiving Dinner. When he said he would pray for you, he meant it and he prayed for all of us endlessly. In a world where chivalry is dying, Dan kept that alive with his kindness and respect. He had a unique way to make his presence known, he believed in hard work but not to take life to seriously. He was not just the life of the party; he was the party. When your phone rang you knew you were in for a story unlike any other. He loved making people laugh and cherished time with his family. All the kids knew when Uncle Dan was coming over, he was bringing donuts. He loved all sports but his love for football and the New England Patriots is unmatched. One of the highlights of his year was the NFL Draft which he would watch from start to finish. Not so lucky for his wife it always fell on their wedding anniversary weekend, but he made up for it by watching it “down the Cape”. He felt that all you needed to cleanse your soul was family, the ocean and good music. Dan may have been called a lot of things in his lifetime, but Papa is the one he was most proud of. His smile, Irish wit and charm will be deeply missed by all.
Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend a time of visitation on Tuesday, December 14, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Norton Funeral Home, 53 Beech Street, (corner of Union Ave.) Framingham.
Funeral Services will be private.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care of Norton Funeral Home in Framingham.
