Mr. Daniel S. Grandillo, Jr.
Batavia - Daniel S. Grandillo, Jr., age 91 of Batavia, passed away on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at Premier Genesee Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Batavia. Due to NYS DOH rules, during the past 14 months our dad was unable to enjoy visiting with family privately inside or outside in the fresh air. It wasn't until his final days that family was allowed to visit with him in his room, two at a time without supervision from the facility. Please advocate for our elderly in care facilities, they need to be able to enjoy the time they have left with family. They have missed so much due to the lockdown.
