Obituary of Danny Lastra

Please share a memory of Danny to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

With heavy hearts, we gather to mourn the untimely passing of Daniel Lastra at the age of 43. Danny passed away suddenly in his home in Union, New Jersey, on October 5, 2023.

Danny entered this world brimming with life — a radiant blonde boy who captured the hearts of many. He grew to be caring, sweet, charismatic, and funny — an irresistible charmer and fitness enthusiast, always seeking new adventures. He cherished the companionship of his dog Aja, found joy in coin collecting, delved into true crime documentaries, loved discussing history, and treasured playing Rummikub with his family.

Danny possessed an infectious laughter capable of brightening even the darkest of days. Above all, it was Danny’s heart of gold that will never be forgotten.

In the late '90s, Danny fell victim to the surging opioid crisis. Over the years, he fought tirelessly. Despite his courageous efforts to regain control, the darkness proved overwhelming, and he tragically lost his battle to a heroin and fentanyl overdose.

We can all take comfort in knowing that Danny is surrounded by light, free from the torment that plagued him. We would have given anything for him to experience that freedom in this lifetime. Our grief will be infinite.

Danny is survived by his father, Daniel Lastra; mother, Jacinta Lastra; sister, Vanessa Imme; brother-in-law, Matthew Imme; niece/goddaughter, Adrianna Imme; nephew, Mateo Imme; fiancée, Suze Nobre; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins in the US and Spain.

May your spirit soar, Danny, as you find the peace that eluded you on earth. Descansa en paz. You will forever live on in our hearts.
