Laurie Mortimore (Kozak)Nadia and family, I am so sad to hear of Danny's passing. He was a lovely sweet man and always willing to have a conversation. He always asked about my 2 children, Matthew & Amy which was so much appreciated. He talked of how proud he was of his own children and excited about the grandchildren. We were neighbours for a short time but always took a minute to stop and chat at my new house when he was walking to work. My heart goes out to the entire family. He will be missed.
Heather GoddardNadia, Mike, Danielle and Julie: I am deeply saddened and sorry for your loss. Danny was always so caring about everyone and extremely kind. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Heather Goddard

Don ThibodeauNadia and Family, My deepest condolences on Danny's passing. I had the pleasure as District Manager of knowing and working with Danny for many years prior to my retirement. Danny was very dedicated and well respected. My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting you Nadia with Danny many many years ago at a fundraising dance where Danny took great pleasure in cheering me on for Karaoke but I couldn't convince him to take the mic. to belt out a few of his own tunes. May all the memories you have bring you solace.

Jack MacfieNadia, it's been just over 41 years since we met (Western staff Christmas party, Dec. 21, 1974). Barbara and I were there for your wedding, birthday parties for your children, moving, house parties, camping and so many little events that friends share. I will deeply miss simply that Danny is no longer dependably just around the corner. My sorrow cannot come close to matching yours or Mike, Danielle and Julie. Please remember that while you can no longer share his time here, he has gone to the most wonderful place you could hope for. God wanted him back. I'd like to think that he is setting up the liquor store for me when I get there. See ya someday, Danny.
