Daniel John Deschaines, 33, died on June 24, 2021. He was born on August 5, 1987, the beloved son of his parents Alice “Bobbie” (Provenzano) Deschaines and Dale Deschaines. He will be deeply missed by his brother, Joshua Deschaines of Eagle River, Alaska. Daniel was an electrician, attending IEC, Independent Electrical Contractors and working for L-Train Electric of Middletown. Daniel was adventurous and warm-hearted. He loved riding his motorcycle and riding around in his blue truck with his buddy Nolan. He was talented at working with his hands and spent many hours working alongside and learning from his father, Dale. He used his talents to help others and could be counted on to come whenever you called. The absence of his wide smile and affectionate nature will leave a hole in our family. Daniel was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Lawrence Robert Deschaines, Theresa Deschaines, and his maternal grandmother, Alice Provenzano. He is survived by his large extended family, grandfather, Vincenzo Provenzano, aunts Laura (Vet) Mason, Mary (Michael) Finello, Carole (Wayne) Hatfield, Helene (Kevin) Murphy, Giovanna (Charlie) Wrisley, Jessica (Jason) Dumont, Veronica (Rodrigo) Gomez, Lori (Gary) Mankus, Rita Dunegan and uncles Frank (Sally) Provenzano, Daniel Provenzano (Margaret Kolb), Chuck (Sue) Provenzano, John (Dorothy) Provenzano, Thomas Provenzano, Paul (Maryann) Provenzano, Jerome Provenzano (Mindy), Marty (Patty) Wozniak and Gene (Cindy) Logan. Daniel is also survived by the love of his life and soulmate, Jill Gara and Nolan Gara, the son of his heart. Daniel had a close and loving relationship with his mother, Bobbie; they shared a love of laughter, family and reading.
