Daniel J. McCarthy


When he cooked, one thing was for certain: there would be no leftovers. Daniel attended the Le Cordon Blue Culinary school in Pittsburgh with intentions of working at Hotel and Restaurant management. But once there his interest turned to being a chef. He kept the kitchen humming at Millers Ale House in Springfield, Pa., but it may have been the members of his family who received most of the benefit from his skill: his holiday special dish was sweet and sour meatballs. His lifelong love of sports started with Logan Twp. Basketball where he was voted MVP. Dan was also a born performer: he wrote rap and played his keyboard. Just a kid at heart, summers found him taking his daughter and niece to the boardwalk. It’s arguable who enjoyed the rides more. Dan was raised in Logan Township and graduated from Kingsway High School in 1998. He died suddenly on Jan 3rd at his home in Collingdale, PA.

Dan is survived by parents, Diana and Frank, a daughter, Brielle, his sister, Shannon DiCarlo and godchild, Francesca DiCarlo.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Dan at my sons wedding this past September. He made such an impression on me by introducing himself, telling me how he met my son and what there friendship meant to him. He spoke about his daughter and his cooking career. He was just so polite and you could tell he came from a nice family. I’m so sorry for the loss of this young man. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and daughter.
