On the night of July 6, 2018 many families across Madera and California suffered a devastating loss. Daniel was taken away from all of us at home in his parents driveway while relaxing and listening to music. It was something he often did and enjoyed doing while his ever curious mind pondered about life and how he could better his. Daniel attended local schools graduating from Madera High in 2009 and later attending State Center Community College. Anyone who really knew him knows how special this young man truly was. He was a kid at heart, a man of genuine character, a reliable and honest friend, and the most special and loving brother and son anyone could ever want. Danny, as his family and friends would call him, was full of extraordinary potential and love and will be deeply missed every single second of everyday by so many family members and his friends.
He is survived by his parents Maria Magallanes and Jose Martin Duran, his twin brother Julio Pelayo and his older brother Jesus Pelayo. Also surviving are many aunts, uncles, nephews and cousins.
A Vigil and Rosary Service will be held at 10:30 am at St. Joachim Catholic Church followed by a Memorial Service at 11:00 am on Tuesday, July 17th.
