Daniel L. Burke

Dan was born, raised, and educated in Mattapan. He graduated from Saint Gregory’s Elementary School in Dorchester and Catholic Memorial High School in West Roxbury, Class of 1981. He lived in Quincy for five years, previously in South Boston for most of his life.

He worked for thirty-five years as a letter carrier for the United States Postal Service. Dan especially enjoyed his relationships with the residents and business proprietors whom he delivered to. He was delighted to have a pizza named after him at Schoolhouse Pizza in Quincy Square called “Danny the Mailman Special Delivery”.

Dan, like his father, enjoyed cooking, golfing, and singing.

Beloved son of the late Weston J. and Catherine V. (Leonard) Burke. Devoted brother of Weston Burke of Weymouth, Paul Burke of Mansfield, Kathleen Burke of Rockland, Edward Burke of Va., Francis Burke of Port Jefferson, N.Y., and Nancy Griffin of Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y. Dan is also survived by many aunts, uncles, nephews, cousins, and friends.
