Obituary of Daniel M. Perlinger
Daniel was a strong man who had seen quite a bit, but despite all that he had lived through he had a heart of gold. Daniel was a proud Marine, enlisting when he was only 16 years old and served in the Vietnam War. The Buffalo News even wrote an article on Daniel’s service. Daniel met his soulmate, Viviane, as a very young man before he went overseas to serve his country. In 2010, they reconnected and the connection was still as electric as ever. In 2014, they got married and were inseparable. One year, they took a road trip to the Sterling Renaissance Fair and Viviane got car sick. She had to lay in the car for over three and a half hours. He stayed at her side the entire time to make sure she was alright.
Daniel was a very passionate man and loved to collect things that made him happy. He enjoyed collecting things that he could work on and improve upon, such as Harley Davidson motorcycles, pinball machines, or jukeboxes. He would even work on a motor at the kitchen table. He liked getting gifts for people, like fold up can openers or baseball hats. He once bought out a leather store’s inventory, planning to sell them but ended up simply giving them all away to friends. Daniel also loved jigsaw puzzles. He thought that the best way to start was to sort the pieces by color.
