Online Condolences


  1. In speaking to his Dad this P.M. (8 P.M. 4/13/2022) we were informed of the unfortunate news of Dannys passing. Bert, Pauline and their children were friends of ours for many years (I went to grammar school with Bert) and they were our daughter Kathleens Godparents). Thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  2. My sincerest condolences to the Poitras family. Dan will be deeply missed beyond words. I enjoyed traveling to Maine with Dan over the past 20 plus years and having him as a neighbor in both Maine and RI. Dan was and always will be a treasured friend who will be fondly remembered and greatly missed. Peace and love to his family

  3. Bert,

    So sorry to hear of Dan passing. I will add the Poitras family to the Choir’s prayer book.

    Cheryl & Paul

  4. My sincerest condolences to the Poitras family, especially Mark, an old friend of mine. I know they were close
