February 6, 1958 ~ May 29, 2021

Born in: Atlanta, GA
Resided in: Hoschton, GA

Daniel Charles Brennan was born February 6, 1958 in Atlanta, Georgia. He passed away peacefully on May 29, 2021, from complications from gallbladder stones. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed. Daniel attended Druid Hills and Shamrock High Schools, located in Decatur. He later worked for Frito-Lay in Chamblee. He retired from Crown Castle in 2015, after 16 years of service. I always told him he was the best darn operations technician at Crown. He loved boating on his pontoon boat, first at Lake Fontana, NC and, the last 15 plus years, at Lake Lanier. He was very social, and love to get out for lunch and go to all his many watering holes in the Braselton/Gainesville and surrounding areas. He was an avid sports fan. Daniel loved his Georgia Bulldogs, and he was a Falcons season ticket holder for 39 years. He loved this country, he was very patriotic. Daniel loved to travel the US, but never more than three consecutive days away from home. He will be missed by many friends and especially his longtime girlfriend, Maureen. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to the Humane Society or Saint Jude Children’s Hospital. Daniel loved animals, especially his White Shoes Kitty and Cat. They were his children. There will be a graveside service on Saturday, June 5th, at 3 PM at Gwinnett Memorial Park, located at 925 Lawrenceville Highway, followed by a celebration of life at Maynard’s, located at 7435 Spout Spring Road in Flowery Branch, from 4:00 to 6:30 PM. Please come casual, that’s the way Daniel would have wanted it, and come join us in toast to his magnificent life.

  4. CandleImageOur sincere condolences. We will miss seeing Daniel at Friends. Such a great guy and everyone was his friend. Rest in peace! Ray and Suzanne

  5. CandleImageI met Danny in the early 90’s. He was the sweetest, kindest and most polite young man. He was always like that except with a smile on his face. Especially when he looked at Maureen. Even though we lived in different states, I didn’t keep in touch as I should have with Danny and Maureen. But I do remember a wonderful trip we took on Danny’s pontoon and camped out over night. I don’t remember too much about the trip but was told I had a ball after too many tequila shots. We always had a wonderful time when with Danny and Maureen. He will truly be missed. Love and prayers to Maureen and Danny’s family.

  6. We are all saddened by the loss of Daniel. Always enjoyed his wide knowledge of football, so much so that he was regarded as “Coach” to our gang. Rest In Peace Daniel.

  7. CandleImageDanny was a joy to be around. I had the privilege of working with him as well as enjoying some good times. Words cannot express the wonderful person he was. We also shared a great love of our feline friends!

  8. CandleImageDaniel and I met about 15 years ago and realized we had probably met back in the 80’s on the softball field. He played for Frito Lay and I on another team. We went to many of the same places back then off of Peachtree Ind and Buford highway. I really enjoyed our many football discussions at our favorite watering holes! Since I am a Saints fan, our discussions were rather spirited but all in good fun. We went to several Falcons games together and always had a blast. My wife said “ He could light up a room with his smile. We called him Mr. Falcon or Coach. We will miss him very much. Peace to you my friend. Fly High!

  9. CandleImageI knew Daniel from work originally, he had the clarity and wisdom to celebrate the gift of life everyday from the simple pleasure of his cats to watching a game. In today’s world it is easy to be distracted with the chaos and noise, celebrating the simple gifts and being grateful every day is a lesson we all can heed.

    Daniel will be missed.

  10. CandleImageHi Maureen, I am sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting Danny in Puerto Rico and what a great guy he was, so fun, kind and how much he loved to laugh.

  11. I’m so sorry Maureen for your loss of Daniel.

  12. CandleImageSuch a sudden loss of a dear dear friend. I have so many fond memories of Danny. He was a sweet and kind man and friend to so many. I love you Maureen and will always be here for you. May you rest in peace Danny.

  13. So sorry to hear about Daniel, he was a great guy. I really enjoyed tailgating and going to the Falcons games with him and Maureen. He was a huge Falcon and Bulldawn fan! He will be missed by many!
