Daniel Raymond Zuccarelli
March 27, 1977 ~ January 2, 2024 (age 46) 46 Years Old
Daniel Raymond Zuccarelli, on January 2, 2024 age 46 of Moorestown, NJ. Beloved husband of Amanda Zuccarelli (nee Swain). Loving father of Atticus. Cherished son of Raymond and Deborah Zuccarelli (nee Haines). Dear brother of Jason Zuccarelli.
Dan was a gentle, kind soul, loved by everyone he knew. One of his friends put it best when he said that on January 2, 2024, “we lost a good one, maybe the best one.”
He was an avid gamer, loved all things Disney, was well read and had a passion for board games; he enjoyed playing them with both family and friends. He loved the beach and spent time there every summer with his family. Dan loved traveling and took many trips both inside and outside of the US. The two he valued most were recent trips he took to Nevada and California. He and his wife were remarried by Elvis in Vegas and went on to take their son to Disneyland. They made many wonderful memories.
While he initially resisted adding pets to his little family, he quickly became smitten with the two cats they adopted, Wayne and Garth.
Dan valued education. He completed his bachelor’s degree in communications at Temple University and his master’s degree in library science at Drexel University. He worked for NFL Films for nearly 20 years and used this knowledge to advance many of the archive procedures that are in place there today.
Dan fought an incredibly courageous battle against cancer for the past three years with the help of his dedicated team at Penn Medicine Abramson Cancer Center. He endured almost 100 sessions of chemotherapy, brain surgery, gamma knife radiosurgery, radiation and many other treatments and procedures. He was motivated by his unwavering love for his family, especially his beloved wife Amanda and precious 9-year-old son, Atticus. He wanted his legacy to be that he never gave up, and he truly never did. He fought until the last moment.
Dan expressed the desire to encourage others to become organ donors by making it known on their driver’s license. Because of his illness, he was unable to make that designation and wanted to ask others to do it in his place.
