Nov 17, 2022

Daniel J. Alden, 71, of Raynham/Wareham died on October 21, 2022 peacefully with his adored daughters by his side.

Born in Taunton, raised in Raynham, Daniel was the son of the late Jon J. Alden and Eileen M. Alden and brother of the late John J. Alden Jr., Ann-Louise Alden, and Priscilla J. Alden. He is survived by his brother Timothy F. Alden, his loving daughters, Rebecca E. Alden and Megan S. Alden, their siblings; Farrah M. Galvin and Thomas F. Galvin IV, and two beloved grandchildren Violet A. Alden Liddell and Michael Alden Pitre. 

Daniel graduated from Bridgewater-Raynham class of 1968 after which, he majored in marine biology. Following his studies, Daniel became a Book Printing Pressman at Rand McNally in Taunton. Although the company changed hands several times, Daniel came to master his trade and retired from the plant, now as Quad Graphics, after 46 years.

Daniel worked diligently to provide for his family. He enjoyed finding new spots to try some good food. Both close and extended family gatherings were always cherished for the great company and amazing food as well. He also enjoyed fishing and going to New Hampshire with his family for vacations. Daniel was often working on cars, never failing to teach a thing or two in the process. (Including, but not limited to: where to point the flashlight!) He was very caring, understanding, and intelligent. He was a great man to all that knew him.

Funeral arrangements are under the care of Hamel-Lydon Chapel.
