Oct 29, 1955 – Oct 8, 2017
Dan passed away at the Golden and District General Hospital after a long illness. He put up a brave fight until the end.
Dan was born and brought up in Ontario. After leaving school he worked at several jobs including a spell at a mine in the Yukon. He then settled in Orangeville where he worked as a driver and dispatcher for a taxi company.
He married Lynda Cook in 1981 and they had a daughter Danielle in 1983. They separated in 2008.
Later in June 2011 he married Catherine Burbidge. In 2014 they moved to Golden BC to be closer to Catherine’s family. They enjoyed life in Golden but unfortunately Dan’s health declined and he spent much of his time as an invalid.
He is survived by his wife Catherine and her children, Jason (Samantha) and Derek (Sam); his daughter Danielle (Jordan) and their children Jasmine and Jordan Jr.; his brother Barry (Kimm); his sisters Michelle (Mark), Sharon, Roberta (Geoff), Adriene (Steve), and many cousins and nieces and nephews as well as his father in law George Ross and brother in law James Ross (Cheryl).
He was a kind and gentle giant loved by all.
At Dan’s request there will be no formal funeral service and his ashes will be scattered privately by the family.
