Daniel N. Torres

Daniel Nelson Torres, of Newburyport, MA, left this earth on August 25, 2018 at the age of 62. His longtime love, Linda Christman, was by his side.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Daniel’s sense of adventure led him to hitchhike across the country at an early age. He lived in many states around the country, including the mountains of Utah, where he learned to be an accomplished skier, after which he moved on to California where he surfed up and down the coast. Daniel worked as a carpenter for most of his life and was most proud of his work on the historic renovation of the Key West Customs House. He was a very creative person, and an accomplished artist, photographer, furniture maker, sculptor, and poet. Daniel had an infectious laugh, loved all kinds of music and was a great dancer. He and Linda enjoyed many hours on the beach, where he loved to go fishing.

A kind, sensitive person and generous in every way, Daniel will be missed by all who had the honor of knowing him, especially by his beloved Linda.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
