    My sincere condolences to Dan’s family. I worked with Dan at BMO for a while and never forgot his friendliness and our good little chats. We crossed paths last fall at Arion Therapeutic Farm fundraiser. I hadn’t seen him in quite a while and we hugged and visited. He was a good guy. I’m in shock. R.I.P. Dan. You’ll be missed and thank you for that hug that day. I’ll never forget it.

  • Shawna Forrest says:

    I absolutely adored Dan! If there was one other person I looked forward to seeing more than Hoey every week, it was Dan. He just had this warmth and an easy way about him that put a smile on everyone’s face and made everyone feel relaxed and comfortable. We were always laughing and exchanging music and traveling adventures. Hearing of his death has made me profoundly sad. I feel for his family and friends as loosing someone like Dan is a massive loss. I will miss him greatly!

    Aunty Shelly, Uncle Guy and Trevor, we were all very saddened to hear of Daniel’s passing. I will always remember him as the little kid with the great sense of humour pulling practical jokes on me and my friends when we came to visit. And how he never stopped bringing up the speeding ticket I got when we were driving from Kelowna to Edmonton. He will be very much missed. Since condolences.
