Daniel Cambourelis-Haskins, 19, of Hopkinton passed away Feb. 28. Daniel was born in Boston on Sept. 29, 2003. He attended Lexington Christian Academy through January 2022 and graduated from Greater Commonwealth Virtual School soon after. He was working as a computer consultant in the midst of a gap year. He deferred his admission to the University of Connecticut to fall of 2023.
Daniel will be remembered for his creative ideas and his love of sharing his learning with others. Remarkably, Daniel was self-taught in many subjects. A voracious reader, he excelled at synthesizing volumes of information through a scriptural lens, becoming wise beyond his years. He loved long discussions with family and friends about geopolitics, science, history, philosophy and world affairs.
Known for his extensive knowledge of technology and his creative inventions, Daniel crafted innovative technological applications to improve people’s lives and enjoyed helping those who struggled with its use. He was a gifted woodworker and artist, receiving prestigious awards for his artwork. As an Eagle Scout, he enjoyed the outdoors and serving by mentoring younger scouts, illuminating many conversations with his sparkling wit and contagious smile.
But most important to Daniel’s heart was the honor of reaching others with the hope of connecting them with his Savior and the hope of seeing the world become a truer reflection of Heaven.
Despite his many accomplishments, Daniel invariably deflected praise and would faithfully respond, “All glory be to God!” Daniel’s humility, intelligence, sensitivity, sincerity and twinkling smile will be deeply missed.
Daniel is survived by parents Daniel M. Haskins and Diane C. Cambourelis, grandfather Thomas Ewing Haskins, aunt Nancy (Ivan) Haskins-Leblanc, uncle John (Nina) Haskins, uncle Thomas (Sabrina) Haskins, uncle Mark LaPerle, aunt Eleni (Michael) Benedikt and cousins Ruth Martins, Marie Scott, Andrew Leblanc, Jillian Leblanc, Walker Haskins, Victoria Haskins, Katerina Benedikt and Andreas Benedikt, as well as many other relatives, friends and neighbors.
