The son of Jacqueline and Mark Barden, Daniel, 7, loved swimming and soccer, according to the Wall Street Journal. He was a "sweet boy," Karin LaBanca told the WSJ. LaBanca's daughter was friends with Daniel.

From his obituary:

"Daniel was the light of his family's life. Adored and admired by all, Daniel touched the lives of all who knew him with his warmth, inspiring spirit of kindness and generosity, outgoing and affectionate nature, and his imaginative play

Daniel loved spending time with his family, both immediate and extended, riding waves at the beach, playing the drums in a band with his brother James and sister Natalie, foosball, reading, and making s'mores around the bonfire with his cousins at his Papa's house in Smallwood, NY. Daniel was on the Newtown soccer team and the Newtown Torpedoes swim team."
