SLATER, Daniel Douglas
1952 — 2020
THE FAMILY HAS DECIDED TO POSTPONE THE CELEBRATION OF LIFE TO A LATER DATE WHEN IT WILL BE MORE APPROPRIATE TO GATHER.
It is with deep sadness that we have to announce the passing of Daniel Douglas Slater. Born on August 21, 1952 in Burnaby, BC. He passed peacefully at the age of 67 on February 27, 2020.
He is survived by his 3 kids Jeanette (Chris), Kevin (Kelsey), and Brian; and grandkids Ava, Malia, Emmett, and Riggs; as well by his siblings Bonnie, Barb, Brian, and Karen. Dan was a loved father, brother, grandpa, uncle, mentor, coach, businessman and very good friend to many.
He was a concrete industry and motorcycle enthusiast, known for his unparalleled wit and charm that will be missed by all. He always made everyone feel welcome and at home in his presence. This was evident with his open-door policy in his garage, where many great laughs were shared.
There was nothing he was prouder of, or loved more then his children, and he often talked about his grandchildren as being the most beautiful things in the world. His booming laughter, playful banter and lively stories will be fondly missed by anyone who was able to experience it. The legend of Dan Slater will live on in our hearts.
