Dan passed away at home on March 14, 2013, at the age of 67. Loving husband and soul- mate of Judy (nee Wielgut) for 35 years, proud father of Greg and Steve. Dan was born in Brockville, graduated from Queen's University, and taught Physical Education with the Ottawa Carleton Board of Education for 33 years. Teaching students gave him great pleasure, and he enthusiastically spent many hours coaching wrestling, rugby and football. Both Dan and Judy had a love of the land. In 1980, they bought a farm in Osgoode where Dan derived a sense of satisfaction from growing corn and soybeans. The camaraderie while golfing, playing hockey, hiking with his buddies in England, getting together at the pub on Thursdays, and just visiting with friends brought joy into Dan's life. His friends will miss his sense of humour and the certain way he had of making everyone comfortable. Most important to Dan was his family. His greatest source of pride and joy was watching his wonderful boys grow to be fine young men. Whether travelling the world or staying at home, Dan and Judy were best friends, just happy to be together. The family will receive friends at the
