Daniel Enriquez, victim of the Q train shooting, remembered at the funeral

The Goldman Sachs executive who was shot dead on a Manhattan subway was remembered on Tuesday as a loyal and beloved family man.

Hundreds of mourners lined up outside the Transfiguration Roman Catholic Church in Williamsburg to pay their respects to Daniel Enriquez, just 10 days after he was gunned down in a random subway attack in the Big Apple.

“There are no words to describe him,” said Ruperto Enriquez, the murdered man’s father, at the funeral. “His presence, his smile. He was 100% a positive person. If you had a problem, he would help you find a solution.

“I’m happy because he’s in a better place,” said elder Enriquez, who flew in from Seattle to attend his son’s funeral. “We are Catholic. We believe in what the bishop said. We believe in that.”

Among those who attended Enriquez’s funeral was Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon.

More than 600 people packed the church for Tuesday morning’s funeral. In the chapel, a montage of photographs showed Enriquez surrounded by family and friends.

The 48-year-old executive was riding the Q train to Manhattan for brunch with friends on May 22 when he was shot in the chest and mortally wounded by a tramp.

Andrew Abdullah, 25, was arrested in the case three days later and charged with second-degree murder.

The slain man’s 18-year-old partner, Adam Pollack, 54, later told the Post that Enriquez began taking the subway about two weeks before his death after Uber increased its fees.

“He wasn’t a tube person,” he told the Post on May 23. “It was the price increase, the $40 each way. He just didn’t want to.”

“It’s sad to lose a family member, especially in this way, senseless,” says Jaime Quiroz, Enriquez’s cousin. “We are here to support the family.

“Besides being smart, he really loved his family,” said Quiroz, who flew in from California. “He really took care of everyone. He had a big heart.”
