‘Firefighter at Niagara Active Hose Volunteer Fire Company’
Daniel Paul Koslicki, 28, of the Town of Niagara, NY, passed away suddenly on September 19, 2020 at Sister’s of Charity Hospital, Buffalo, NY. He was born on February 8, 1992 in Amherst, NY.
Danny, as he was affectionally known, was a lifelong resident of the Town of Niagara, graduated from Niagara Wheatfield High School in 2010 and earned his Associates Degree in Diesel Mechanics from Ohio Technical College. Danny was currently employed as a diesel technician for Cassens Transport. He proudly served as an EMT and active firefighter for Niagara Active Hose Volunteer Fire Company up until his passing. Danny loved spending time with family and friends at the Cottage in Ontario and the hunting camp in Short Tract, where he never had the chance to shoot a deer. Danny never hesitated to help anyone at anytime with anything or life situation. He was always there, whether fixing a car or family and friends projects. Danny had a heart of gold, was unbelievably selfless and had the most contagious smile. He took pride in being the best ‘Big Brother’ to Cody, especially when he smoked him in Madden. Danny enjoyed Country Music, the Tragically Hip, the movie ‘Contact' and was an avid Buffalo Bills fan. After the Bills played, Danny loved to talk to Cody and analyze what they should have done.
