Obituary of Daniel Paul Mostowski

South Hadley -Daniel "Dan" P. Mostowski, 74, passed away April 4, 2024 with his family at his side. He was born on March 2, 1950, in Holyoke, MA to the late Peter P. and Stella H. (Bury) Mostowski.  He proudly served his country in the US Army during Vietnam.  Dan was a graduate of Chicopee Schools and STCC.  After his time serving in the Army, he worked as a tractor trailer truck driver and retired in 2015 from New England Motor Freight.  
Dan enjoyed the outdoors and loved to go fishing, especially in his boat. He was a very creative woodworker and enjoyed building all kinds of things.  He also loved to travel, often in search of the closest palm tree, feed the birds in his back yard and tend to his home and beautify the yard. Most of all, Dan loved to spend time with his family. His grandchildren were the light of his life and he enjoyed nothing more than spending time with them.  
He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Jean (Bain) Mostowski of South Hadley; their two children, Stacey Nestor and husband Karl of South Hadley, and Michael Mostowski and wife Kristyn of Chicopee; Four grandchildren, Brady and Riley Nestor of South Hadley and Madelynn and Sebastian Mostowski of Chicopee; and his brother, John Mostowski and his wife Arlene of Jupiter, FL.  He will also be missed by his niece, nephews, cousins and many dear long time friends. The family wishes to thank the Baystate 5th floor SW nursing staff, The MICU staff and the thoracic surgery and pulmonary teams for the exceptional care provided to Dan.
