Obituary of Daniel T. McCort

Our son Daniel passed away on January 1, 2021, at the age of age 38 after a brief illness. Dan was born and raised in Syracuse, attending H. W. Smith School, Christian Brothers Academy, Fayetteville Manlius High School, Onondaga Community College, Drew University and Syracuse University, where he acquired his Master of Arts degree in Broadcasting Media and Film Production in May of 2020. Dan was a popular comedian on the Upstate New York comedy circuit. He performed his standup at such places as Funk n’ Waffles on University Hill and at Wise Guys in downtown Syracuse. He won the Ithaca Comedy Festival in 2017 and wrote a book on the theory of standup comedy. He also loved music and was a talented drummer for various rock and blues groups in the area. Finally, he was an award-winning sketch artist, justly praised for his style of meticulous realism. He is survived by his parents, Dennis and Dorothy; his sister, Denise and brother-in-law, Nitai Aventaggiato; and also by his aunt Annie, aunt Iris and uncle Ron, uncle Nick and aunt Vicki; and cousins, Anthony and Nicole. To these add his many friends and numerous colleagues over the years. He will be deeply missed by us all. Funeral services are limited to immediate family only.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to causes Dan believed in such as the homeless population and Feed the Children. Arrangements are with Fairchild & Meech DeWitt Chapel.
