April 1, 1950 – February 7, 2021

It is with heartfelt sadness we announce the passing of Dan. He peacefully passed away in his home with his family at his side. Dan was born in Armstrong and grew up there. He loved the area and travelled the back roads with his friends. Dan was an avid collector and wouldn’t miss a garage sale, always hoping to find another treasure. Known to all as the “REEL DOCTOR”, his collection of rods and reels were very important to him. He will be sadly missed by his wife Cheryl, sons Greg and Jamie, daughters: Tanya, Dayna and Deanna; brothers: Ted, Corney and Derk; many nieces and nephews as well as grandchildren. Dan was predeceased in 1986 by his son. Danny would welcome him with open arms in heaven. Any donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the Cancer Society. No service at this time due to Covid.


Condolences to Cheryl and family. I have known Dan for over 54 years, used to do the mainers in Vernon from CN parking lot to Safeway numerous times. Had the odd wobbly pop. Great times visits to Fischer's hardware etc Dan used to phone going through Airdrie . Miss you buddy.

Cheryl and family...I was very saddened to read of Dan's passing. With sincere sympathy, I wish you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. May Dan, the "Reel Doctor", be peacefully fishing on a beautiful lake...Julie Warhurst
