Daniel Eric Lima, 55, of Pocasset, died Feb. 1, 2017 in Falmouth Hospital. He was the loving husband of Donna (DiMascola) Lima and the son of Beverley A. Sequeira and the late Daniel C. Lima.
He was born and raised in Wareham and lived in Pocasset for 6 years. Mr. Lima graduated from Wareham High School in 1979.
He served in the United States Air Force as an aircraft maintenance specialist. He was proud to say he kept the B-52s in the air.
Mr. Lima was a Head Custodian, at Morse Pond School, for Falmouth Public Schools. He had a smile for everyone, and enjoyed getting to know the students in his wife’s classroom. He was soft-spoken with a big heart and was chosen to receive an “Ordinary Hero” award by the students in 2015.
He loved traveling with his wife and fishing with his son, Rikki. He was happiest in his own little piece of Heaven that he and Donna created in Pocasset. They worked together, they lived together, and only wanted to be together, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
