Daniel F. Rubado, 69, of Syracuse, passed away Sunday at University Hospital. A lifetime resident of the Syracuse area, he worked in the radio industry for 32 years. In 1966, at only 15 years old, Dan Elliott became the lead singer for The Monterays and opened a show for The Beach Boys, the #1 group in the world at that time. In 1968, The Monterays song, "If Wishes Were Horses" became one of the best-selling singles in Central New York history. In 1974, Dan Elliott took Dion's place as lead singer for The Belmonts and began a long relationship touring all over the world including numerous shows at Madison Square Garden. In 1976, he appeared in Syracuse as the lead singer for The Belmonts for a two-week stint at The Top of the Inn, the #1 show place in CNY at that time. Shows were sold out every night. In 1996, Dan Elliott and The Monterays were inducted into The Sammys Hall of Fame and in 2001 he was inducted into The Doo-Wopp Hall of Fame of America at Symphony Hall in Boston, MA. Dan was predeceased by his father, John "Jack" Abert; and brother, Jack Abert. Surviving are his beloved wife, Carolyn Tucker-Rubado; son, Daniel Rubado Jr.; stepsons, Ryan, Scott and Colin Tucker; mother, Concetta Abert; sister-in-law, Anita Abert and nephews, Tim and Dan Abert.
