Daniel Spampanato passed away April 9, 2021 at the age of 32. He leaves behind his wife Holly, their two year old son Carter, as well as many friends and family members.
According to social media posts and different Fundraiser’s held for Holly and Carter, Daniel suffered a stroke after his vaccine and did not recover. In the gofundme fundraiser, a relative by the name of Alison Engwell (cousin by marriage) states:
“On the morning of Tuesday 6th April, Holly woke to discover Daniel needed an emergency Ambulance. The paramedics took Daniel to Leicester Royal Infirmary, where he was diagnosed as having a major stroke. On Wednesday the 7th, Daniel had deteriorated. He was transferred to Nottingham Queens Medical Centre for life saving surgery. Unfortunately, the operation was not successful. Daniel spent his last days in intensive care surrounded by his loved ones. His life support was switched off on 9th April 2021.”
According to Linda Spampanato, a doctor did confirm that Daniel’s stroke was due to the Astra Zeneca vaccine. She appears to be advocating to raise awareness so other families do not end up in the same situation.
Another fundraiser was held on Facebook and was organized by Holly’s Mother, Stacy Harris. The family seems very grateful on both fundraisers, for the generosity others showed during such a difficult time.
Comments on social media as well as all of the fundraiser donations reflect that Daniel and his family are very likable and loved. There is no doubt that he will be missed.
Although Daniel’s wife and son appear to have a strong support system, nothing will ever fill the void of having Daniel taken so soon.
