We Remember

LANGLOIS, Daniel Robert Joseph “Danny”

June 4, 1957 — February 19, 2024

Daniel “Danny” Robert Joseph Langlois passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Monday, February 19th, 2024, at the age of 66 years. Danny was a husband to Jackie Langlois; father to four sons: Ryan Daniel, Chad Stanley, Justin Robert, and Travis Lee; Grampy to Jonah and Ava; brother to Lorette, Paul, Mike, Larry, and Claude; father-in-law to Stacey and Melissa; and a friend to so, so many.

Danny was born June 4th, 1957, in Willow Bunch, Saskatchewan, to Robert Langlois and Solange (Curly) Therrien. Soon after, his family relocated to Moose Jaw, SK, where Danny lived and made his home over the next 50 years. He worked many jobs over the years but will be most remembered as the proud owner and operator of the Nevada Nickels Hotel And Bar (aka Jake’s Saloon, aka The Nickel) on River Street. Danny was a respected businessman, beloved member of the community, and a proud Saskatchewan resident. Eventually, Danny and Jackie discovered the beauty of the Okanagan and chose to replant roots in Kelowna, BC. Where they built an incredible life together, surrounded by an amazing community of friends.

Danny enjoyed the big things and the little things in life.  Travelling the world with Jackie, listening to his favourite tunes while watering his plants, fishing and snacking on Goodie Rings at the RDI, golf trips with the Wednesday Night Rowdies, winning two-bits off his best friends in loud and crazy games of Uno or Chase the Ace, and feeding his hummingbirds.  The greatest gift Danny gave himself, and in turn all of his friends and family, was his sobriety.  He was sober for 47 years at the time of his passing.

Danny lived a good and full life, which he truly loved and appreciated in every single way.  Never taking for granted the joy of a butter tart and a decaf coffee with his best friend Jackie, on their deck in Kelowna, BC, watching the sunset.

5 bucks, 5 bucks, 5 Bucks. Pass the Mustard.

He will be missed so much.

A Celebration Of Life service will be held on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2024, AT 1:00 PM at Moose Jaw Funeral Home, in Saskatchewan, 268 Mulberry Ln, Moose Jaw, SK S6J 1N1.
