Daniel F. Miller III

May 8, 1979 ~ October 1, 2023
Brookfield-Daniel F. Miller III, 44, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Sunday, October 1, 2023. Daniel, or Danny as his family and friends would call him, was born on May 8, 1979, in Syracuse. He was the son of Daniel F. Miller Jr. and Susan Smith Miller.  He was born and raised in Syracuse, New York.  Although he had lived in many places throughout Central New York, for the last five years Daniel resided in Brookfield with his wife and children.  He and his wife, Crystal Wood, were wed in Clockville, NY the summer of 2009. Daniel’s love for mechanics led him to work as an automobile mechanic at Walt’s Automotive Repair in Syracuse. Danny was a jack of all trades. Daniel loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. He also enjoyed teaching his children how to safely hunt and fish. Danny enjoyed spending time outside, whether he was in the driveway fixing something or on the grill making and eating food. His memory will live on in his generosity and aptitude to always help anyone in need at the drop of a hat. https://www.paulfuneralhome.net/obituary/Daniel-MillerIII

US Navy fighter jets intercept Italian cruise ship hijackers

“On October 10, 1985, the hijacking of the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro reaches a dramatic climax when U.S. Navy F-14 fighters intercept an Egyptian airliner attempting to fly the Palestinian hijackers to freedom and force the jet to land at a NATO base in Sigonella, Sicily. American and Italian troops surrounded the plane, and the terrorists were taken into Italian custody. On October 7, four heavily armed Palestinian terrorists hijacked the Achille Lauro in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Alexandria, Egypt. Some 320 crewmembers and 80 passengers were taken hostage. Hundreds of other passengers had disembarked the cruise ship earlier that day to visit Cairo and tour the Egyptian pyramids. Identifying themselves as members of the Palestine Liberation Front—a Palestinian splinter group—the gunmen demanded the release of 50 Palestinian militants imprisoned in Israel. If their demands were not met, they threatened to blow up the ship and kill the 11 Americans on board. The next morning, they also threatened to kill the British passengers.”
