It is with profound sadness that the family of Dennis Danielson announce his passing at Birchwood Terrace Nursing Home, with family by his side. Dennis was born March 7th, 1932 and would have been 90 years old next March. Dads last few years were challenging, but he made an effort to remain upbeat and optimistic even with his failing health. Unfortunately, once the love of his life passed , our mom (Doe) on October 21, 2020, he lost his spark for life and just wanted to be with her. Their love and devotion to each other was evident to our whole family throughout their lives . They were best friends and did everything together, leaving our families with a wonderful example of what a happy marriage is.
He was predeceased by his daughter Ruth in 2019, sister Edna Burton and her husband Harold , parents Albert and Lilian Danielson and many brothers and sisters in law, Aunts and Uncles. He is survived by his daughter Lynn , daughter Karen (Les) and son Daren (Cara). His grandchildren Danielle, Rachel, Laurel, Laney, Brendan and Lauren. Great grandchildren Sheldan, Kylan, Kourtney, Mason and Jolan, all of whom were dear to his heart.
Dennis and Doe started their married life in Winnipeg where Dad worked for the CPR as Secretary to the Vice President. He spoke fondly of these days when Mom and Dad would travel on the train to various locations. Dad ultimately gave up this position so he wouldn't be away from Mom so often. He worked for the School Board, The Town of Keewatin as Recreation Director, Mutual Life and various other jobs over the years. Mom and Dad moved to Killarney Manitoba once the kids had moved out, where he was a Minister for the Pentecostal Church . They made many good friends and enjoyed their years in Killarney. Mom and Dad were devout Christians who had dedicated their lives to the Lord, and lived their lives Ministering to others. This gave them great joy.
Dad and Mom moved back to Keewatin in 1992 and semi retired, Dad found employment as a Bus Driver doing the Minaki run. They loved fishing and would often be seen out by Whiskey Island when we were heading out to camp. These were great times for Mom and Dad and they spoke of them often. We would often all get together and go fishing and have a fire on shore. We all have loved our cooking over the fire over the years. Dad would take us on many excursions as a family and most of them involved eating over a fire.
Dad you have been a great father to us all and you are already missed. There is comfort in knowing that you are with Mom and Ruth and other people you love. Thank you for the gift of you for all these years. Tell Nana you're purty Mommy and give Ruth a big hug.
