Farmer, mechanic, football coach, NSW Fire Brigade
Daniel was born in Wagga Wagga and is a 4th generation farmer in Mangoplah. He became a apprentice mechanic after leaving school. After 15 years as a mechanic he returned to farming and has been farming since. Daniel has always been community focused having been a member of the NSW Fire Brigade for 10 years before heading back to Mangoplah. He coached the Riverina Lions for 2 years while Sarah played for them. The support from the Lions family and the greater community in helping setup the scholarship that Melinda Mack spoke about in the weeks after Sarah’s passing is something that Daniel holds close to his heart.
