Daniel A. Bythrow, age 85, of Quincy, died peacefully, Friday, July 30, 2021, in the comfort of his loving family, at the John Adams HealthCare Center in Quincy.

Dan was a manager with the Woolworth department store chain for thirty-five years. He managed various stores but mostly in Quincy and Boston and retired in 1995.

He was a United States Navy veteran, serving as an ICFN in the late 1950s aboard the U.S.S. Arcadia (AD 23) and the U.S.S. Beatty (DD 756).

He was well known as a community activist and was a longtime member and past president of the Houghs Neck Community Council.

Dan was an active parishioner at Most Blessed Sacrament Church in Quincy and was a member of the Holy Name Society and a former Cub Master.

Beloved husband for fifty-seven years of Joanne M. (Elword) Bythrow.

Family was everything to Dan. One of twelve siblings who grew up in the Houghs Neck neighborhood of Quincy, he remained close to his brothers and sisters all his life, raising his own family to be close to their aunts, uncles and cousins. In later life, he found community and comradeship living at 1000 Southern Artery, enjoyed traveling with his wife, family and friends, and especially treasured times spent with the youngest members of his extended family. He was the dear brother of Robert Bythrow of North Reading, Peter Bythrow of MD, and twin brother of Mary Bythrow of Quincy. He was predeceased by Jean Ladas, Martha Byrne, Beatrice Miller, George Bythrow, Jr., Frederick Bythrow, William Bythrow, John Bythrow, and Valerie DiTullio.
