G ranville, NY – Daniel Joseph Wescott, passed away on January 4, 2019 at Yale New Haven Hospital in Connecticut.

Dan was born on June 6, 1952 in Glens Falls, NY the son of Martin and Harriet (Boulette) Wescott.

He was a 1970 graduate of Salem Washington Academy and a 1973 graduate of Adirondack Community College with an Associates Degree in Business.

Dan worked for St. Gobain Corporation and retired in 2005. He also worked part time as a Washington County Sheriff Deputy for many years.

He was active in the community of Granville for his entire adult life, in one capacity or another. He was a past member of the Henry Hose Fire Department and a past member of the Village of Granville Zoning Board.

Dan was actively involved in sports, both as a coach and a referee.  He coached Granville Little League from 1984-1995. He coached JV Volleyball and JV Basketball at Granville High School.
