Obituary

Wayne (Paré) Daniels, 49, of Los Angeles, CA, formerly of Manchester, passed away at his residence on December 13, 2015 after battling metastatic appendicle adenocarcinoma cancer for almost 4 years.

He was born in Manchester on September 5, 1966, the son of Robert and Verna (Daniel) Paré. He attended West High School, received his B.A. degree from the University of Southern California, and his MBA from Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA. In his teens, he joined the American Children's Theatre in Manchester. He performed at the Palace Theatre, the Portsmouth Music Hall, and Theatre by the Sea in Portsmouth and did a national tour. He relocated to New York City where he earned membership to the Screen Actors Guild, Actor's Equity, and American Federation of Theatre and Radio Actors at the age of 18.

Once in Los Angeles, he established a production company whose focus was meaningful entertainment for young children. He not only founded the REACH Foundation (reading, education, and arts for children), produced several award winning CDs, but also created Kids Club which hosted music, education, and arts to wholesome family events all over the LA area for over the past 22 years.

Wayne always put his family first, but was a true people person as well. He volunteered his time tutoring for the LA Library working with immigrants and also visited the homeless, providing blankets in cold weather. He enjoyed ice skating, particularly with his seven-year old daughter and wife. His love for nature, included jogging and mountain biking.

Wayne was a dedicated husband and father, and is survived by wife of 11 years Ann 48, seven-year old daughter Norah; his mother Verna (Daniel) Paré of Manchester; his brother Kevin Paré and his sister-in-law Kimberly, and their children Hannah, Sarah and Joshua. He also leaves a great aunt, Muriel Paré of Washington, DC; two aunts, Phyllis Rogler and her husband Russell of Ogden, UT, and Cynthia Daniel of Merrimack; and cousins, Jeff and Bridget Rogler of Seattle, WA, and Greg Rogler of Salt Lake City, UT; and many friends.
