Age 92 passed away peacefully on Wednesday May 1, 2019 at Saint Patrick’s Manor in Framingham surrounded by his loving family. Born in Boston and raised in Dorchester, Michael was the son of the late Francesco D’Aniello and Saveria Baldassre. He was devoted husband of the late Ursula (Visconti) Daniello for 68 years and was a Natick and Framingham resident for over 60 years before becoming a resident at Saint Patrick’s Manor.

He spent most of his career working as a Machinist in the WH Nichols Company of Waltham which then became Parker Hannifin Company where he stayed until his retirement.
Michael's greatest joy was spending time with his family and was passionate about being present with every milestone in the lives of his grandchildren. He so enjoyed gardening and took great pride in his home. He was happiest spending time on Cape Cod where he had a second home for many years as he loved being by the sea. Michael was best known for his great sense of humor and joy for life.
