Dan was a good husband to my sister, Jacqueline. I was very fond of him, and also his three daughters. They came to visit us in San Diego. I saw Dan at at his home near Winlaw in the summer of 2014. He was a great teacher and football coach in Calgary. Dan was a very special person

From: Juliana Miller-MacPherson
Relation: collegue - St. Mary's High School

Dan was one of the first gentleman that encouraged me to join the St. Mary’s Athletic team for coaching and fundraising involvement. A quiet man; but his point was always made with kindness. My prayers to you and his family.

From: Patrick Windle
Relation: Colleague

Years ago, Dan and I worked many useful, happy hours together as A.T.A. reps. Intelligent, steady, good humoured, a wonderful wit and a lot of fun, any time with Dan was most enjoyable. Sincere sympathy to the family.
