“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.
