Daniel A. Houle

May 17, 1956 - January 17, 2019

Daniel Armand Houle went to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 17, 2019, in Trinity, FL at the age of 62. Daniel is survived by his wife of 31 years; Marielle A Fillion Houle, son; Jonathan D Houle, siblings; Raymond (Brenda) Houle, Carmel (Walter) Chrzaszcz, Roland (Denise) Houle, Roger Houle, Robert (Lisa) Houle, Rita (Joe) Fichera  and Dianne Matarozzo and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by two brothers; Albert Houle and Armand Houle and his parents; Raymond Houle and Rita Gentes Houle. Daniel was born on May 17, 1956, in Manchester N.H. He served in the U.S. Navy for 4 years during the Vietnam War. He was on the USS Shenandoah AD26. His smile captured the eye of Marielle. It was love at first sight.  He later married Marielle on June 27, 1987. On August 5th, 1988 there beautiful and healthy baby boy Jonathan Houle was born. He was the apple of his eye. Jonathan was the 1st and only one to carry the Houle name. Daniel was so proud of that. We moved to Columbia, S.C.in 1990  and moved to New Port Richey FL. in 1998. He worked at Paramount Painting as Vice President of Sales. Daniel loved to go golfing with his buddies. He loved fishing on his boat. He was so proud of it, I swear he cleaned that thing every day. He just loved life and enjoyed being with people.Daniel was loved by everyone.  He would always make you smile and give you a mint or candy because he always had some on him. He was loving, caring and always wanting to help others. Dan had lung issues for over 10 years and was in the hospital 2 or 3 times every year. He has suffered so much through the years. He has been in the hospital since December 17th and it finally became too much for him to handle.

From his son Jonathan:

“Nothing in life prepares you for losing a parent… Losing the person that has been there for you throughout your whole life, through thick and thin, has to be one of the most painful experiences in life. I know for me as it stands right now it IS the most pain I have ever felt. As odd as it may seem, I feel blessed to feel this amount of pain. I feel blessed because in order for me to feel this agony, I had to have a father in my life that I truly loved and was loved back by, someone that was always there for me whenever I needed him. Knowing that provides me solace. I feel infinitely grateful and privileged to have called him my father, my dinner and movie night buddy, my fishing partner (even though I would just drink beers on the boat while he did the fishing), my role model to show me that there is no limit to how hard you work to provide for and care for your family, and my hero.”

He will be forever in our hearts. He will be missed by everyone that knew him.

What our families say...

“I recently traveled to Florida to attend the funeral of a dear relative. It was not an easy trip to make, as I am disabled and travel with my faithful service dog, Whistler. The staff at Michels and Lundquist were so kind and thoughtful and welcomed Whistler and I into their establishment and made sure we were both comfortable. The service was wonderful, so personalized and dear Aunt Glenda looked so beautiful and peaceful.”
