In Loving

Daniel Vincent Giorgi

June 22, 1997 – November 7, 2020

Daniel Giorgi, 23, loved his family, playing hockey and watching the New York Yankees and Rangers.

He left this world way too young on Nov. 7, 2020 in Midlothian, Va. at the only home he ever knew.

Daniel was the youngest child of Teresa and Robert Giorgi. He was born June 22, 1997 and graduated from Monacan High School in 2015. He went on to graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU Richmond campus) in 2019 with a BA in criminal justice.

Daniel was a friend to everyone he met. He loved to make people laugh.

His life was never far away from the ice. He started playing hockey at three-years-old at the Richmond Ice Zone and continuously played on competitive teams, including the Richmond Royals. Most recently he was one of the youngest players on the Grumpy Old Men hockey team where his father also played.

They played together with a fierce competitiveness.

During his life he also worked and refereed at the Richmond Ice Zone.

Every year, starting at age five, Daniel’s  father would take him and his brother Anthony to New York so they could watch the Yankees play baseball and the Rangers hockey.

Daniel had scores of friends and they loved music (Bass House), festivals and playing ultimate frisbee along the James River.

He was learning to cook and was getting creative in the kitchen. He was always open for a new adventure, but also loved spending simple time with his family.

Daniel is survived by his loving parents, Terri and Bob Giorgi; sister, Kristen and Soren Burke and their children Lucy June, Asher Anthony and Mia Rose of Glen Allen; sister, Melissa of Richmond; brother, Anthony and his significant other, Kelsey Webster, both of San Diego.

A viewing will held Tuesday, Nov. 17 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Affinity Funeral Service, 2720 Enterprise Pkwy, Richmond, VA 23294.

There will be a private family mass at the Epiphany Catholic Church, Richmond.

    Bob, Terri and all your family

    We are forever changed by your loss, by all our loss. Just like you said, Daniel really did put a smile on our faces when we were around him. Bob, you were the ultimate father, always passionate, caring, and above all loving and involved. Terri, always the best mother it’s no surprise that Daniel took up cooking because of your influence, you are incredible. We have so many cherished memories over all these years that will remain in our hearts forever. We love you all.

    Bob, Anthony and Giorgi Family.
    Words cannot express our sorrow for your loss. Although many of us played for or against Bob and Anthony, Daniels presence at the rink and games was always noticable and we will always remember the boy and young man that while quiet, carried an infectious smile and attitude to the rink as a player, employee and official. You are in our hearts and thoughts.

    Bob and Terri-
    I was shocked and saddened to hear this news. I never met Daniel, but from hearing about his accomplishments and knowing Bob and his fiery Italian spirit, I’m sure Daniel lived to the fullest and was amped up to do more great things. Let his zest and spirit live on as an inspiration for your family. Im sure you’ll find strength in depending on each other as you work through this. Be well.

    Dear Bob, Terri & Famiy,
    We are so, so sorry for your loss. Daniel was always so friendly when we’d see him at the rink. We have fond memories of the days when Bob coached the Royals team with Gino and Daniel; lots of fun times on the road together. We will pray for you and all who loved your wonderful son as you try to move forward. May the comfort of God’s love bring you peace during this time.

    My heart goes out to the Giorgi family in this painful time. Bob always spoke about him with such admiration and it is clear that he is deeply loved. The memorable interactions I had with him included a smile on his face, which is how he will be remembered.
    With loving support,

    Bob. Terri and family,
    Crystal and I were stunned when we found out. I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Daniel at the office after school watching TV. We have experienced our own losses over the years but not one should lose a child. You will be in our prayers to get you through this time. Remember Jesus is “the resurrection and the life, he that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life” -John 11:25

    Mr. and Ms. Giorgi,

    I got to know Daniel some in middle and high school, and then even more so playing hockey. He will be greatly missed, and was an absolute joy to play against. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Connie & I watched Daniel grow up into a kind, intelligent and wonderful young man. We will miss him so very much. I am so proud of my sister Terri and Bob for the way they raised all four of their children. They are an inspiration to parents everywhere on how to do it right. Their loss of Daniel is a loss for all of us.

    I am so sorry to hear about Daniel. He was always so nice when we spoke. I worked at Target with him. I know many of us are at a loss for words and will miss him greatly.

    Dear Bob and Terri,

    I am so sorry for this tragic loss! My family and I have offered up our Rosary and Mass intentions for Daniel and the rest of your family. My intention was to attend the Wake but unfortunately, I got off of work too late. May Our Lord and Our Lady comfort you during this trying time.

    Today, two days after Daniel’s birthday we sat on the memorial bench at Powhatan state park enjoying the last of summer. The fresh flowers someone left had fallen over and the water spilled out. I righted them, filled the vase from our drinking water and placed them in a more protected location nearer the bench. As I sat there I felt your loss as our granddaughter died two years earlier in a car accident. We miss her, perhaps they have made their acquaintances in heaven. Our hearts go out to you, we never forget.
