Daniel Douglas Emmonds

January 29, 1953 - September 14, 2016

Tribute

It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of our Dan. After a long battle with prostate cancer, he left us too soon, in the early hours of Wednesday, September 14. He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. We mourn his passing with heavy hearts.
Dan loved to be outside, whether he was boating, fishing, hunting, picking mushrooms, picking brush and, of course, camping. Texada Island was a favourite spot for him and he would often go there to enjoy outdoor activities. But more than anything, Dan’s 13 grandkids were his pride and joy and the lights of his life. He loved to be around them, every chance he had.

Dan is survived by his loving wife and best friend Connie, his children Michael, Shannon (Dana), Steven (Sara) and Gregory (Courtney) and his grandchildren Ombrea, Ebony, Tyler, Jarrod, Tianna, Kylie, Kevin, Alex, Mykayla, Cruze, Hendrix, Madelyn and Taryn. Another grandchild is due to be born this December.

Dan absolutely loved and was passionate about his job as a prawn fisherman. He shared that experience with his brother Ted, who also survives him. Dan also leaves behind his sisters Elaine, Lorraine and Arlene, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his mother Norma Emmonds in 2012 and his father Leonard Emmonds in 2008.

We would like to extend our gratitude to our doctor, Danielle Marentette, for her wonderful care of Dan, to the home-care nurses for their many cheerful visits and to the kind nurses on the fourth floor.

There will be no traditional funeral, as was Dan’s wish. In lieu of flowers, donations to Prostate Cancer Canada would be appreciated.

Our daughter-in-law Sara said it best in her Facebook post from last week.
There is a home full of sadness and heartache, a sense of emptiness as we look at the chair you once sat in. But amongst all this pain, there is a home full of love and strength. There are tears and there is laughter, there are grandchildren playing and babies giggling, there are old memories being told and new ones being made.

We are doing exactly what you wanted. Your family is together, the family you and Connie created, and we are forever grateful for the life you lived here on earth. We love you more than you know and we will speak your name often. Heaven has another great man.
