I'm sure all of you know by now that Danny Quirk (aka The Spider) died as a result of injuries sustained while wrestling on Saturday, May 28, 2005 in Taunton, MA. His family and friends were of course devastated by the news. We take small comfort in the fact that he died while doing something that he loved.
In Dan's memory, we are setting up a scholarship fund at Shelton High School that will be awarded to a graduating senior studying Graphic Arts/Communications. Danny studied Graphic Design at Northeastern in Boston and graduated from UNH in New Haven, CT with a degree in Graphic Design.
My family and I would like to thank everyone who attended the funeral services, sent flowers, cards, letters, tributes, mass cards, donations, and phoned us in our time of grief. We apologize if we didn't get a chance to talk with everyone, but it was a bit overwhelming. In the last couple of days, we learned a lot about Danny and the many lives he has touched over the years. Be careful and don't take life for granted.
