Danny was an avid outdoorsman; hunting, fishing and camping. Danny was a passionate cook; no detail left untouched. Especially family barbeques with a tong in one hand and a glass of wine in the other. He loved life and had a keen intellect; he was more than familiar with most subjects. He and Glenda were fanatical Saskatchewan Roughriders fans, not missing a game.
Danny and Glenda moved to Strome AB. in June 2014, when Dan retired from Vincor in Oliver. He was busy fixing their new home and planning a garden, which brought him great joy. May the northern lights dance with you and shine down on us all. With that we take comfort knowing you’re at peace. You will be forever missed and have left us with an irreplaceable void. Until we meet again!
