I knew Dan from Saturday morning hockey at the Kensington Ice House. His personality was always so bright and lighthearted, something I always enjoyed and will remember.
Wishing you and your family peace and comfort during this time.

Please accept my deepest sympathy and prayers. Daniel was a cousin on my father's side. My father was James F. Schoenherr. His father was Ray C. Schoenherr, Sr. who was married to Dan's grandmother, Helen Horal. I heard about his passing from my cousin Ann Ferrari, who is a first cousin to Dan. Please know that I continually pray for the repose of the soul of Daniel and for peace and comfort for the family during this time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Dan and family. I didn't know Dan personally, but I felt the need to reach out to say how sad I am to hear of his passing. I was at the park the night of the accident, and when I rode up to the scene and realized what had happened my stomach felt sick. I ride my bike there every week in good weather. My he Rest In Peace.
