Obituary

East Lyme. Daniel Mark Majchrzak, 24, of Chesterfield Road ended his courageous 6 year battle with opiate addiction on February 3 at his home in Coral Springs Florida. On July 17, 1992, our world was blessed with a beautiful boy full of light and love and with a heart of gold. Dan grew up in East Lyme with a passion for sports. He graduated ELHS in 2010. He was a gifted athlete who brought joy and exhilaration to those who watched him race around the court. D-Money could sink a 3 pointer like no other. Danny had a contagious smile and an amazing sense of humor with a knack for making everyone laugh. He was loyal, loving, sensitive and spiritual. He loved his family, friends, his girlfriend Nora, the Buffalo Bills and the Michigan Wolverines with all his heart. In recent years he was especially devoted to fitness and body building. Dan could talk to anyone, from any walk of life and bring out a smile. He was a light to us all and although he has been called home, he will continue to be a beacon from heaven, shining a light on the disease of addiction. Addiction is a chronic brain disease that can be managed with treatment. It is not a moral failing or character flaw. It is a disease that is steeped with stigma, judgement and discrimination. It causes those suffering to isolate and withdraw from those they love often preventing them from seeking help. Death by overdose is the number one accidental killer of our young people. Every 4 minutes a parent loses a child to overdose. In these times we cannot be passive. We must come together to end this epidemic. We ask in Danny's memory that you reach out to someone who may be struggling. Grab their hand. Don't let go. Never Give Up.
Danny is survived by his father Mark, his mother Chris, and his sisters Sarah and Caroline. He will be missed by his grandmother Patricia, Uncle Ed, Uncle Doug, Aunt Beth, Aunt Sara and his cousins Hannah, Claire, Hope, Ali and Jon.
The family will recieve relatives and friends on Saturday February 11 from 12 to 3 pm at the Thomas L. Neilan & Sons 48 Grand Street Niantic. A 3 O'clock prayer service will be contucted followed by a celebration of life gathering at Flanders Fish Market at 5:00.
In lieu of flowers please consider donating in Danny's name to Shatterproof.org https://www.shatterproof.org/ Shatterproof is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the devastation that addiction causes families. www.neilanfuneralhome.com
