With our deepest sympathy we regret to inform you of the passing of APT Machine Sales Engineer, Mike McDaniel.


David “Mike” McDaniel of Del Ray Beach, Florida, formerly of Brighton and Duxbury, passed away on February 29, 2020 at the age of 74. Beloved husband of 52 years to Maureen (Forte) McDaniel and father of Tracey Miller (husband Steven) of Mansfield and Sean McDaniel (wife Joanne) of Marshfield. Cherished grandfather of Julia and Katie Miller and Caroline, Meghan, Ryan and Lauren McDaniel, all of whom he adored.

“Captain Mike” as he was affectionately known loved being on the water as Captain of the boats the M&M and Stampede 3. Mike enjoyed summers at Duxbury Beach and winters in Tropic Bay, Delray Beach, Florida. He also loved being out on the greens with his golf buddies.
Mike and Maureen loved entertaining, especially festive family Thanksgivings and holidays. A consummate storyteller who was never at a loss for words, Mike was above all else a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather who filled our lives with laughter and joy. He will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
