Daniel J. Phillips, 49, of Bernardo Drive passed away Sunday (6-12-2022) at home.
He was born in Greenfield May 11, 1973, the youngest son of Herbert E. Phillips, Sr., and Nancy J. (Fisher) Phillips.

Daniel lived for the day not worrying about tomorrow like our modern-day society forces us to do.  He was a very generous soul, always willing to help others in need.  He would even offer his home as temporary shelter to his friends and stray animals if needed. 
Dan leaves his parents and his brothers Herbert E. Phillips Jr, and Steven R. Phillips all of Montague. He also leaves his Uncle Gary (Joyce) Phillips and his aunt Karen Phillips of Greenfield; Niece Holly S. Phillips and nephew Herbert E. Phillips, III and numerous cousins.
