Daniel Steven Nitti, 54, of Millstone passed away on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. Daniel was born in Brooklyn, raised in the Great Kills section of Staten Island, and settled in Millstone in 2000 where he raised his family. For over 25 years he was self-employed as the owner and president of Patriot Shipping in Avenel. Daniel was a sports fanatic and rooted for the Yankees, Giants and Rangers. He loved music, his favorite band being Led Zeppelin, as well as reading and watching old movies with his dad. A staunch Republican and history buff, Daniel’s final wish was to keep America great.
Most importantly, Dan will be remembered best for being a great husband, an incredible father, a loving son, the best brother, brother-in-law and uncle you could hope for, and a faithful friend.
