DORNAN, Daniel Alan
September 2, 1980 — January 15, 2022
Dan Dornan had big plans. A father of twin girls with triplets on the way, Dan and his wife, Victoria, were gearing up to buy a house in Lake Country, BC. They had recently moved to the area, and Dan had just set up his own contracting business. The future was very bright – and very full. But, on the morning of January 15, 2022, Dan was suddenly taken from us in a car accident on his way to work. He was 41, and will be missed immensely.
Raised in False Creek, East Vancouver and Nelson, BC, Dan was whip-smart with a dry sense of humour and a lot of opinions. As a kid, he loved BMX biking and outdoor adventuring – and he flat-out refused to take a photo without pulling a funny face. He could pick up anything quickly. After all, the way he learned how to ride a bike was by being hustled onto the seat and launched down a hill by his helpful big brother, Sean.
Through the years, Dan had many jobs, from magazine distributor to coffee roaster, before finding a passion for home renovation and construction. He liked working with his hands – building things and solving problems. In his downtime, he enjoyed off-roading, camping with friends, and working on his Tacoma. When Dan met Victoria in 2009 he fell hard, and the two of them got married in Toronto, ON in 2014. A few years later, they set off on an epic adventure, RV-ing from Vancouver to Ottawa and down to New Orleans. His next adventure was fatherhood, Dan and Vic welcomed identical twins Cassidy and Allison in 2018 – and he absolutely relished it. He doted on the girls and loved to teach them how things work.
In addition to Victoria, Cassidy, Allison and soon-to-be-born triplets, Dan leaves behind his mother, Laura; his dad, Pat (Barb); his siblings, Sean (Kelly) and Chelsea (Nate); his nieces, Maya and Zoe; his much-loved dogs, Bowser and Koopa; and many other close friends and family. The loss of Dan has created a huge, unfillable void in many lives.
