Dan "Danny Boy" Pereira

Brothers and Sisters,

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the tragic death of President Dan Pereira “Danny Boy” of Local 1010, Narragansett Bay Commission. Dan was a very kind man, husband to Helen and father to Zachary and Alexandra. He was the President of Local 1010 and a skilled process monitor for the Narragansett Bay Commission for many years and fought endlessly for his Union brothers and sisters. Dan also fought fiercely for our country as a Marine.

On Friday evening, Dan was traveling on his motorcycle in Randolph, NH with a group of other Marines, who are part of Jarhead MC Marine Veterans motorcycle club, when a pickup truck collided with them. The accident killed Dan and six other people, leaving three others injured. Council 94’s thoughts and prayers go out to Dan’s family and his friends’ families during this tragic time. The flag is flying half-mast at the Union Hall in their memory.

He will be sorely missed by everyone.

The calling hours are respectfully omitted. There will be a Mass of Christian Burial Friday, June 28 at 10:00 a.m. in Our Lady of the Rosary Church, 21 Traverse Street., Providence, RI. The burial, with military honors, will follow at the RI Veteran’s Cemetery, Exeter, RI.
