    A Life Well Lived-Dan Kopetic Mar 15, 1972 - Sep. 19, 2014


         Daniel C. Kopetic, born March 15, 1972 died September 19, 2014,  of Farmingdale, N.Y., after a brave, valiant battle with Synovial Sarcoma.  Dan was my brother, and the best brother anyone could ask for.  He leaves behind his wife of 15 years, as well as 3 children.  He is also survived by his beloved parents and 3 siblings.  Dan was a Special Education Teacher in the Bellmore School District, as well as a religion instructor at St. Kilians R.C. Church in Farmingdale N.Y.  During the summer months, Dan was a manager at the Mineola Pool, in Mineola N.Y.  A celebration of Dan's life was held October 4, 2014 at St. Kilians Church, with over 1,100 people in attendance,  with a celebration of life luncheon following at The Carlyle in Bethpage N.Y.  Dan will be sorely missed, never forgotten and his strong spirit will forever live on in the hearts of his family, and all who loved him.  Until we meet again.........
