An all-state athlete from Ishpeming High School in rural Ishpeming, Michigan, Daniel was an overachiever and all around great guy who loved to help people. He was devoted to his family and friends, and was a beloved member of the community.  

 

Daniel tried many things to help him cope with depression and anxiety. One night when he was contemplating suicide, he and his father took a walk at 1 a.m. Daniel said to his dad, "I don't want to die, I just can't handle this anymore. And nothing has worked." People who suffer don't want to die, they just want to escape the pain. Daniel and all of his family members fought extremely hard.

Family


"We talked openly about everything Daniel was going through as a family. Even suicide. We believe Daniel lived longer because of this. We are still grieving today and don't want others to go through what we've been through. There is hope and we believe, through our experiences, that most people can be helped."
