He was with the Ministry of Highways for 35 years which saw him reside in the far reaches of the province such as Dease Lake, Red Pass and Dawson Creek. An avid fi sher, he was happy living in the north for many years, but he eventually found his way south to Summerland with Jane and his youngest children Jake and Joey. He fi nished up his career in the Okanagan as the General Manager for Argo Road Maintenance. Dan will be missed for his quick wit, silly antics and huge heart. The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Penticton Oncology ward and to Dr. Robert Mack. A very special thank you as well to Public Health Nurse Joanne Whyte.
