Daniel Timothy Lascek, 36, of Dacula, Georgia passed away on March 14th while surrounded by his loving family. Daniel was born in Boulder, Colorado on July 2nd, 1983 as the son of Diane and Dean Hoffman and Timothy and Linda Lascek.
Daniel was preceded in death by his loving grandparents Wilbur and Sonia Kean and Joyce Golden, all of Cranesville, PA and his uncle Stephen Kean of Avoca, PA.
Daniel graduated from Napa High School and attended Dacula High School. As an adult he attended Wilturn Adult Community Services. Daniel was able to inspire those around him with his love, innocence, and overwhelming humor. Daniel’s influence on his friends and family enhanced their lives by cultivating their empathetic instincts and compassion. Daniel was naturally mischievous and lit up everyone’s day with clever pranks and funny gestures. Daniel taught everyone he met to have patience, enjoy the simple things in life, and to love unconditionally. Nancy Williams, one of his favorite caregivers, remarked that, “Daniel had lived a better life than most of us will ever live: happy every day and not a care in the world.” Daniel enjoyed windy days similar to cartoon character Winnie the Pooh and found meditative peace watching flags and trees blow in the wind while outdoors. Daniel loved watching his favorite movie “Muppets Family Christmas” which put him into a happy mood. He also enjoyed dancing to music, pumping his fist, and clapping to the rhythm. Daniel enjoyed the company of animals and was always excited to pet dogs and imitate monkeys. Daniel expressed his love for others by giving back rubs and grand endearing hugs.
In addition to his parents, Daniel is continually loved by his siblings, Justin of Woodland Park, Colorado; Nathan (Alyssa) of Marietta, Georgia; and Joshua & Nicole of Mooresville, North Carolina. Also his step brother Dean Jr (Kate) Hoffman, step nephew and niece Porter and Clover all of Napa, CA and grandparents Rudy (Kay) Lascek of Erie, PA. He is also survived by three uncles, Donald (Jill) Kean, Tom (Pam) Lascek and Ted (Michelle) Lascek as well as two aunts Vickie (Bill) Takach and Terri (Charlie) Carlos. Daniel is also loved by his extended family throughout the country and by his many caregivers who enhanced his quality of life in an innumerable amount of ways.
The family would like to thank the staff at Dignity Care Home, the staff at Wilturn Adult Community Services, and all the support staff for Daniel’s quality care over the years.
