Daniel était un joueur passionné d’échecs avec un esprit stratégique. Durant certains jours tranquilles au travail, il tentait de recruter de nouveau joueurs ou à discuter la fine pointe du jeu d’échecs en jouant avec ses collègues. Il était également très passionné par son métier et tous ses collègues bénéficiaient de son mentorat, son humour et son professionnalisme.

Dan was a passionate chess player with a great strategic mind, on quiet workdays he would always be trying to recruit new chess players or discussing finer points of the game while playing with interested co-workers. Passionate about his trade, Dan was appreciated by his fellow colleagues for his mentorship, sense of humour and professionalism.

Son temps libre était dévoué à sa famille, le véritable centre de son univers. Il était l’exemple parfait d’un père doux, drôle, protecteur et attentionné, ainsi qu’un époux affectueux, attentif et aimant.

His spare time was mostly devoted to his family, the centre of his universe. He was the perfect fatherly example; gentle, funny, protective, considerate and an affectionate, attentive and loving husband.

My uncle Daniel was such a funny and kind person. I remember when I was little he would come up to my room and I would sing on my karaoke for him. I will definitely miss him.

I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family.

Dan was a great mentor to me during our limited time working together. Always had a smile on his face; never been one to look down on your mistakes, but tells you it's a lesson and to learn from it. Chatting with him regarding work and just about anything was always been incredible. Dan, I always looked up to you and will miss your presence.

We shall meet again, in another time, in another place. Rest in peace, brother.

The first thing you forget about someone is the sound of their voice. In my case, I never forgot. I never forgot how you laughed, you smiled. I never forgot how you called me, how you treated me with so much kindness. I never forgot and you will never be forgotten. Thanks for everything you have done for me and my family. Thank you for being so kind and gentle. Thank you.

Dan... I'll remember every time I saw you at work, I pretended to tease you about how annoyed I was... your response was always "hello michelle" ... such a sweet soul. We will meet again brother. Such a great human. RIP.
