Words cannot express how broken our hearts are at this time. Daniel, our sweet blue-eyed boy was taken suddenly from us at the age of 17 on July 20th, 2022.
Daniel was passionate in everything he pursued. He enjoyed spending time with friends. The place didn’t matter, as long as he was with them, he was happy. He loved working on his computer, watching anime, scrubs or Brooklyn 99 and eating sushi. He was proud, as we all are, of his accomplishments, competing in his short time at provincial gymnastics competitions and earning an invite to national rock-climbing competitions. His ability on a skateboard was awe inspiring. Snowboarding was nothing but speed and air. If there was something to climb, Daniel was there. Master of the Rubik's Cube, no challenge was too big or too small, he would find a way. White water kayaker, motorcyclist; Daniel was fearless. He only ever wanted the best in people, and he tried so hard to make people smile. He was, and will always be, an inspiration to us all.
Loved by all, taken far too soon. Our hearts are forever broken. We love you. To quote you Daniel, “I love you, bye bye”. Just know though, this is not goodbye forever my love, just a short time until we see you again.
Daniel is survived by his parents. Patrick and Samantha, his loving brother Jordan, girlfriend Paige, his grandmother Marcella, aunt and uncle Vanessa and Nicholas and his cousins Lara and Cristina. His pets, Star, tuna and Woody will also miss him and his gentleness and compassion. Daniel also leaves behind Peter and Edwina (Michael and Bianca), Sarah and Scott (Alex and Jack), Dan and Wilma closest of family friends along with many other friends and family.
