HPHA is sad to report the passing of a good friend and member Danny Alverado.
by Pete Choate
Dan came to HPHA through a friendship with me, I was working part-time as a caretaker at Indian Springs Farm in Mechanicsville and Danny was with a landscaping company that was servicing the property. We developed a friendship and when I cut back on my work at the farm I arranged for Danny to take over.
A Navy veteran, Danny was a positive person with a deep laugh and a selfless commitment to helping others. He often helped HPHA at the Penrose Strawbridge House and was a community leader in his North Philadelphia neighborhood. He indulged his passion for music as a weekend DJ and had hoped to make a living in the music industry..
Danny had lived through some hard times but was always in good spirits and ready to help anyone in need. He was only 55 when he passed after a long battle with a number of chronic medical conditions.
Dan leaves a son, Daniel Alverado, Jr.
I will miss him, as will HPHA.
