“It’s hard to forget someone who gave us so much to remember.”    -Unknown

Dan’s love for and devotion to his family knew no bounds. His wife and soulmate, Betty (nee Friend), was loved more than any woman on earth. Throughout their 56 years of marriage, they faced the highs and lows of life together. Dan would say that these things only made their love for each other stronger. His ‘three girls’, Lynn Watson, Cindy Dickson (Jason, who has been holding a seat for Dan in Heaven’s Hot Stove Lounge) and Andrea Connor (Michael), each held a very special place in Dan’s heart. One of the things they could always count on was their Dad’s love and support. Dan was extremely proud of his four grandchildren, Riley (Cole), Chloe, Mary and Charlie. In his eyes, it was impossible for any of them to do wrong. His friends were also so important to Dan. A lifetime of stories about his baseball teams, hiking group, poker club, and lifelong friends will never grow old. Dan loved so deeply, and was so deeply loved. Betty, Lynn, Cindy and Andrea will be greeting family and friends at the Turner Family Funeral Home at 53 Main Street in Dundas on Thursday, February 15th from 2:00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00 pm, followed by a Celebration of Dan’s Life on Friday, February 16th at 1:00 pm. Dan’s family would like to extend sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of the incredible people at St. Peter’s Hospital in Hamilton for their kindness and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Palliative Care Wing at St. Peter’s Hospital would be greatly appreciated.

    While we only knew Dan a short time, we quickly grew to appreciate his sense of humour and his genuine love for his family. We enjoyed seeing Dan and his family cheering at Charlie’s hockey games! Our thoughts are with the Watson and Connor Families. Dan, Kate, Evan and Ben Miller

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. I had the privilege of working with Dan on implementing and doing audits in the ISO program. Dan, Jim Shane, and I, as well as Grant Hughes and Steve O’Connor spent many hours on the road, and having Dan with us made the time pass more quickly.May he rest in Peace. Family always came first for Dan.

    So sorry to hear of Dan’s passing. We remember many fun years of golfing, poker club and parties on the Britton deck. He was a gentleman with a great sense of humour and will surely be missed by Betty, his girls, and many friends. Unfortunately we are in the States and are unable to attend Dan’s visitation and Celebration of Life.

    This Man was extrodinary he was always so happy and would do anything for anyone, including me. Betty and Dan took me in and made there home my home, made me feel so comfortable and loved. I will always love both of them for that. My Dad had passed away but I can tell you at that time in my life he was like a Dad to me I’ll love him for that too. Frankie and I will always remember when we use to play quarters with him we had so much fun we loved hanging out with him and Betty on the weekends. He was a man that you would be lucky to have in your life. Frankie and I were very lucky and happy to have him in our lives. Dan you will be missed so much.
