Dan was born in Duncan, BC, a full status member of the Cowichan Band, Coast Salish Tribe of Vancouver Island.  Dan loved to travel and one of his fondest memories was his Kon Tiki tour of Europe. Hallowe’en was his favorite day of the year, with lots of mischief making with his sister and friends. He was an excellent basketball player (Air Murphy). Dan loved the Canucks, never missing a televised game wearing one of his Canucks jerseys. He was an avid camper, fisherman and gamer, and loved going to the gun range.

Dan took great pride in his job as a Protection Services Officer (PSO) for Island Health, protecting patients and other staff with his co-workers. He worked at Campbell River Hospital (CRH).

Dan’s love for his family and friends was second to none. Alicia (once you were Dan’s friend, you were in his life forever), Greg, Mary, Jason, Jordon, Stuart, Susan, his RCMP friends Kevin and Colin, Mike (pharmacist), Amy, Shawn K. (my honour and pleasure to be his friend/brother), Devin (his legacy will live on in me), Monika (honoured to have him in my life for so many years), Andrea (so thoughtful and kind), Chris and Megan, Sonya, Jen, Janis, Kyle (Tara), Cheryll, Kaela (so grateful Dan was my friend), Jay, Mike Primrose, Ruth, Scotia, Ian, Rishi Sharma, friend Panama and his gaming group in the US.

Thank you to the doctors, nurses and support staff at Royal Jubilee Hospital (RJH) who helped Dan through his journey. Dan was so happy to see and hear from all his friends who visited him as well as the phone calls and texts he received.
