October 25, 1978 – March 18, 2021
It is with unimaginable sadness that our family announces the sudden passing of Daniel; or ‘Red’ as most knew him. Daniel will be forever missed by his loving wife, Desiree; his parents Maurice and Madeleine Lavoie; his siblings Justin (Erin); Yves; and Mireille (Randy); In-laws Albert and Darlene Lamoureux; Brother-in-law Adam (Shelby); Sister-in-law Dawn (Jason). He will also be missed by his nieces and nephews; Theo, Olivier, Julien, Sofie, Felix; Andre; Carlee, Jack; Ayla; Kinley and Rory; as well as his friends’ children who all looked up to and knew him as ‘Uncle Red’. A large void will also be felt by many family members, and friends that he made feel like family.
Dan grew up in St. Georges, and their family later moved out to Broadlands. This environment fuelled his passion for anything outdoors, and his connection to the area drove Dan, Des and Alder to purchase their own piece of paradise out there. The Cabin is where his heart was, and would head across any chance he got; to work, play or ride. His strong work ethic and patience gave him the skill to fix and perfect anything. He was always up for a visit and had a special way of turning any task into a social get together; which usually left someone with a lesson learned. Dan lived life without boundaries, and he spent his last day doing what he loved.
Words cannot express the gratitude we feel towards the Hutterian Emergency Aquatic Response Team (HEART) for their expertise and compassion in bringing Dan home. If you feel the need to help, we encourage donations be made to the HEART Team.
Daniel’s urn has been handcrafted with honour by Desiree’s father Albert Lamoureux. The wood used to build it was from an ash tree Dan cut down at the cabin, and milled by Albert.
Private services are arranged for the immediate family, and a celebration of Daniel’s life will be held at a later date.
