It is with deep sorrow and much love that the family announces the tragic passing of Dan on August 5, 2021.
Dan will be will be lovingly remembered by wife Pamela of 23 years, his children Justin and Lauren, sisters Susan (Guy, Julie-Anne, Carolyn, Sebastian), Lorraine (Eric, Kourtney, Benjamin), Patricia, Joanne (Joseph, Anthony), Renée (Tony), Jeanne, as well as, numerous cousins and many lifelong friends.
Bachelor of Business Administration from Concordia and then a Graduate Diploma Management from McGill University. He worked his way up to senior management. He would change companies several times including Pratt and Whitney, Oerlikon and then Canadian Marconi Company. He gained experience with negotiating all over the world. He would always take a day before or after his trips to explore the foreign countries he was in.
He loved excelling at sports: Soccer was his first passion. He loved golf and won tournaments, his shots off the tee a true thing of beauty. A late starter at downhill skiing, he quickly analyzed the techniques and became a certified instructor with his amazing friends. He was also a great skater and hockey player, able to guess your defensive move before you planned it. This ended up being his downfall as a frustrated player boarded him during a no-contact game and reinjured his neck.
The injury was too risky for surgery so he tried to learn to cope with his limitations. What he didn’t know was that not only did he lose his favorite sports but work at a computer would now become impossible thereby derailing a challenging and rewarding career.
He absolutely adored his family, enjoying quality time with them for the last 20 years. He loved to travel and share music with his wife Pamela, learning about world politics and philosophy with Justin and protecting and caring for Lauren as she grew up. He loved spending time with his sisters. His close friends helped to deal with the stresses.
Tragically his condition worsened and his life was cut short.
