Daniel C. Masters March 3, 2011 Daniel C. Masters, 26, of Beley Ave., Mattydale, died Thursday in Nashville, TN. He grew up in Warners and graduated from West Genesee High School in 2003. Danny loved to play hockey and did so since he was four years old. He was a member of the 2001 state championship team at West Genny, known as "Caveman" by his teammates and fans. He will be remembered by all who knew him as a gentle giant because he would be the first to come to anyone's aid when it was needed. Daniel joined the Army in 2006 and served with the 101st Airbourne as a Specialist E-4 in the Iraqi War for more than a year, where he learned to fully understand the meaning of TEAM. Since his honorable discharge in 2010, he had been residing with his mother and his stepfather, where he had been battling post traumatic stress syndrome. He is survived by his parents, Robert Masters of Camillus and Jean (Tom) Herbert of Mattydale; his wife, Karen of Tennessee; a daughter, Kaylie Brea of Tennessee; his brother, Nate (Marnie Kortrite) Masters of Warners; his maternal grandparents, Ed and Jean Spencer of Warners; his maternal great-grandmothers, Gladys DiRisio of Jordan and Eleanor Spencer of Baldwinsville; two nephews, Dillon and Ryan Masters, with whom he had a special kinship; as well as a niece, Lexi Proietti; several aunts, uncles and cousins. Friends may call 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Krueger Funeral Home, 2619 Brewerton Road, Mattydale. Services will be 10 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home, followed by burial with full military honors in Onondaga County Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
