Obituary for Daniel J. Nacin

Daniel J. “Dan” Nacin, 59, of Enfield, beloved husband of Tina Quarequio, suddenly passed away on Thursday, August 22, 2019. Born in Flushing, New York, on June 3, 1960, he was the son of the late Paul and Jacqueline (Belmont) Nacin and grew up in Valley Stream on Long Island before moving to East Windsor and Enfield. Dan worked for the United States Postal Service for 40 years following in the footsteps of his father, who was also a letter carrier for 25 years. He was a proud member of the National Association of Letter Carriers and served the postal union as the Secretary-Treasurer of NALC Merged Branch 86 and the Vice President of the Connecticut State Association of Letter Carriers. When his sons were younger, he coached East Windsor Baseball and Enfield Hockey. Dan was an animated sports fan and loved cheering for the Yankees, Islanders, and Giants. He had a vast and varied love of both food and music. He shared his love of seafood with his family and went to hundreds if not thousands of concerts. Dan had a gentle heart, a love for his family that was unmatched, and a service to his community that will be remembered fondly by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Besides his beloved wife Tina, he leaves two cherished sons, Andy and Alex Nacin and their mother, Donna Messina; his sister Cathy Paolillo and her husband Tony, and their children, Alyssa and Anthony; large extended Nacin, Quarequio, and Messina families; and too many friends and co-workers to mention.

His family will receive friends on Wednesday, August 28, from 4-8 PM at Leete-Stevens Enfield Funeral Home, 61 South Road, Enfield. A Celebration of Dan’s life will be held on Thursday, August 29 at 11 AM at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to your local hospice or the Postal Employees Relief Fund, PO Box 7630, Woodbridge, VA 22195. Dan was a long-time blood donor and gave every chance he got. In his memory, please donate a pint of blood and help save a life. For online condolences, please visit

Dear Tina, Andy, and Alex,
Please accept my deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences over Dan's passing. No letter carrier should ever die in the line of duty, under any circumstance. The loss to your family must be unfathomable, and the loss to the city letter carriers Dan fought so hard for will be felt for years. I only worked with Dan once in the Enfield office, but his effervescent presence was quite palpable, creating an upbeat vibe in the city carrier section. Please know that, as postal bodies united for employee safety, the two letter carrier unions will work further and even harder to push the USPS to provide safer trucks for letter carriers' use. Too many of our fellow carriers have been gravely injured (as I was) or have lost their lives in our working "tuna cans" to let their inability to protect us in serious accidents continue. I personally am working with local congressmen to also get the Passing With Due Regard law, CT statute 14-283, to include postal workers. I have written a personal letter to USPMG Megan Brennan, in Dan's memory, to demand safer working conditions and vehicles. May our voice be heard, so there will be no more deaths on the job. May your memories of time spent with vivacious Dan tide you through your lives and keep him alive in your hearts.
Rural Letter Carrier Burma Shaw
