Oh, you’re the best friend that I ever had
I’ve been with you such a long time
You’re my sunshine and I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
Oh, you’re my best friend
Ooh, you make me live
Ooh, I’ve been wandering ’round
But I still come back to you
In rain or shine
You’ve stood by me girl
I’m happy at home
You’re my best friend….
Ooh, you make me live
Whenever this world is cruel to me
I got you to help me forgive
Ooh, you make me live now honey
Ooh, you make me live

Dan loved the band Queen so starting his obituary with some of the lyrics from a song he liked so much just makes sense. Daniel Robinson Radebaugh III, loving husband passed away peacefully and too soon at the age of 49, on February 3, 2020.

Dan, also known as Rob to his family, was born on April 19, 1970 in Chelsea, MA to Mardell and Daniel Radebaugh Jr.. In 2011, he received his MBA from Boston University, and thought being a “terrier” was quite hilarious. He worked in quality and supply chain development and management in the pharmaceutical industry for all of his professional life. Dan made many long-lasting professional relationships that he cherished dearly.

I’m not sure how many people know that he loved to ski, downhill and NEVER snowboarding (he respectfully referred to snow boarders as knuckle-draggers), and he was a GREAT skier. He would ski on the paved trails, but given the opportunity, skiing off-piste / off-trail was much more his style. For those who know him well, know that this pretty much sums him up! He liked doing things his way.
One of the highlights of Dan’s life was living abroad briefly with his wife Debie in Switzerland where they were able to ski in amazing places, travel Europe, experience new cultures, and meet many wonderful people.

Dan however was a New Englander at heart, and like all fellow “mass-holes” he loved his Patriots, Bruins, and Red Sox but he embraced the Cubs wholeheartedly while living just outside Chicago for the past seven years.

Dan received the ultimate gift of life and received a double-lung transplant in 2018, while living in Illinois. This remarkable gift gave him the chance to breath in life in a way he had never been able to before and for this, his family will forever be grateful to the donor’s family.

Dan is survived by his father Dan, and his mother Mardell, his wife, Debie and their two rescue dogs, Duke and Daisy, and his brother Alan and wife Sandy. Dan is loved by several wonderful cousins, nieces, aunts, uncles, in-laws, grandfather, and godchildren, too numerous to list but certainly not forgotten.

A celebration of life will be held at Riverside Cemetery in Saugus, MA at 11:00AM on Saturday February 15th.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to gofundme. Dan’s wife and family would like to make a donation to Loyola Medical Center in Maywood, IL that will benefit transplant families as well as families undergoing challenging medical hurtles.
