Daniel Di Giacomo of River Town Saints Passes Away
Yesterday, Daniel Di Giacomo, the bass player of River Town Saints, passed away unexpectedly. All of us at Top Country were fortunate enough to call Dan a friend. It breaks our hearts to write this post.
Dan was full of life. Whenever he was around, you could expect to be entertained. From his witty jokes to impressive raps, Dan brought joy to all of those around him.
River Town Saints spoke to their heartbreak yesterday on social media. They wrote, “Heaven gained the world’s funniest bass player today.”
To help Dan’s family with funeral costs, the guys of River Town Saints started a GoFundMe campaign. As of this morning, they are almost half-way to their goal of $15k. If you’d like to support this cause, in memory of Daniel, go to GoFundMe.com.
For those who would like to attend the funeral, the viewing will take place at 10am & celebration service at 11am at Woodvale Pentecostal Church in Ottawa, Ontario on February 25. For those who cannot attend, a live stream will be available at live.woodvale.ca
We are so thankful for the time we spent with Dan. He brought us joy, laughter and friendship. He will be greatly missed. We celebrate the life of this incredible, talented, hilarious and kind soul with just a few of our favourite memories of Dan in the video below.
Rest in peace, Daniel. Our hearts are with River Town Saints and Dan’s family.
