It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of our beloved husband, dad and papa, Daniel Gelinas on June 4, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Yvette, his two daughters Synove (Ivan) and Lainee (Tony), as well as nephew Chad (Tracy and daughter Taylor).  He is survived by his grandchildren Sullivan, Eden, Senon and Esmeé.  He also leaves his two sisters Diane and Claudette (Leonard), two brothers in law Lou Pereux (Gary) and Paul Pereux (Alison), along with aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and numerous friends.

He was predeceased by his parents Roland and Terry, his sister Linda and brother in-law Larry.

A special thank you to all those who provided care and compassion to Danny in his final days.

Daniel cared about and was very involved in his community.  He was well loved by everyone who knew him.

A Funeral will be held at Notre Dame du Laus Roman Catholic Church once we are able to gather as a community.

Dear Yvette and family

I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Danny fondly during my growing up years in Powerview. I spent many hours hanging out with his sisters. There were many times when Claudette and Linda wanted to go out Danny was part of the excursion. He was never the bratty little brother, just a cute and kind little boy. Bless his heart for enduring all of our giggly teenage years. Thankfully he had a wonderful sense of humour.

May he Rest In Peace, free from pain and may you and your family find comfort in memories and know that he is in a better place

Our most sincere sympathy Yvette and family on the loss of Danny. He was indeed well respected and loved by all!
We were so lucky to have had close contact with Danny over the years through work, sports, and volunteer efforts and will cherish those memories forever.
He will be missed in this community that he cared so much for – his efforts never went unnoticed and were most appreciated.
Our thoughts are with you as they have been through this ordeal.
Love Lynda & Bob.

Heartbreaking news. All my best. We spend all the time preparing for retirement and Danny never really retired. He was still working, but that’s the type of guy he was. He could definitely out skate and golf me even though he was 20 years my senior. So sorry for the loss Yvette (family).

Condolence from David Sparrow on June 6th, 2020 5:59 pm

Yvette and Family,

Words can’t express how saddened we are to lose a truly great friend and wonderful neighbor. All the favors given, jokes told, happy times socializing, golfing, curling, will remain vivid memories always. We will truly miss Danny. We are thinking of you constantly Yvette, and as you, we are heartbroken.

Love, Dave and Dee
