Daniel was born in Boston, Massachusetts on November 29, 1945 to an Irish/English mother Helen Wilkinson and Belmondo Vianale, an Italian father, as the first of 5 sons. His DNA profile shows large Northern European ancestry, even just 48% Southern European.
He grew up in Brooklyn, NY close to Coney Island Beach, where he loved to swim.
Daniel co-founded with Mr. Woo the Ilhwa Korean Ginseng distribution network in the USA. Daniel also helped with his own two hands to establish the Good Food Café on 5th Ave in Manhattan and eventually became its manager. Afterward, he established his own fashion jewelry business in Penn Station, NYC for 3 years. His business journey took him to manage, then own the New Yorker Hotel Gift Store in its basement from 1994 to 2001. When the Twin Towers came down in New York, it was the death blow to his gift store, because the hotel lost all its customers. While he closed the store, I – his wife – got the perfect opportunity to work full time as a pharmacist in a hospital in Queens, and we were financially secure again. Daniel retired at this point and devoted himself full time to the raising of our 3 sons.
Daniel and Waltraud Vianale were introduced by True Father Sun Myung Moon, in December 1980. On Dec. 31, 1980, we were engaged. On July 1, 1982, we received the Holy Marriage Blessing by our True Parents in Madison Square Garden. Daniel has three sons: SeungNam Alfonse, ChoongNam Victor, and Sean JeongNam. His only daughter, Hyo Jeung Jonica was adopted by John and Cathy Williams, who raised her excellently.
Daniel contributed wholeheartedly to the ACLC providence, driving our sister from Japan around to visit churches. He also made an 8-day MEPI trip to Israel in 2003 and rode on a camel. In 2005, he visited Korea where our couple received an award for our witnessing efforts.
In 2011, when Daniel had just discovered he had Hepatitis C, we were in the middle of moving to Kingston, NY. Daniel was always a diligent packer – we moved 8 times. On October 1, 2011, we arrived in the Mid- Hudson Valley, where he drove us himself, in a large U-Haul truck. He is a man of many good and perfect deeds.
He always had great concern for being healthy. He taught his wife, a pharmacist about the best foods, nutrition, and nutritional supplements. He spent his last 12 years of life supporting the Lyndon Larouche political action committee. He proved many times over that he was a patriot and beyond.
As his wife, I give him the crown of true husband, true father, and true patriot. That is Daniel Vianale. 10-14-20
