Kenneth G. Daura
White Lake, NY

Kenneth G. Daura, of White Lake NY passed away unexpectedly at his home on Monday May 9, 2022.  He was 77 years old. The son of the late Andrew Daura and Emily Barbarisi Daura, he was born on July 11, 1944, in Paterson, New Jersey. Although he never went to college, he was a workaholic from early on, bypassing doing all the fun things young kids like to do.  Instead, Kenny worked to support his love of nice cars and purchased his very own Cadillac at the age of 16.  Kenny was a Baker by trade and opened his first bakery in Paterson New Jersey.  He later moved his business and opened the Glen Rock Bakery in Glen Rock, NJ.  In 1974 he relocated his family to New York State where he lived for the next 48 years. Kenny was an avid hunter and fisherman and was a member of the Iroquois Hunting and Fishing Club in White Lake, NY.  He lived the last 12 years of his life at the club, surrounded by natures beauty and a front row view of a beautiful lake. He was blessed with amazing friends from the club who cared for him like family. He loved his pet cat “Bocci.”  Kenny is survived by his son John Daura; his daughter Dawn Daura (wife Gail); his 3 grandchildren Andrew, Aidan, and Ethan Daura; his brother John Daura (wife Kathy); and several nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Andrew and Emily Daura.  Visitation will be held on Monday May 23, 2022 from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm  at the William M.
