In loving memory ~
With sorrow we must announce the untimely passing of a loving husband, a devoted father and true friend to many Daniel Dennis DuGas (b. 1952). Daniel is survived by his wife Lenore, sons Darren (Jordan, Dante) Timothy (Shannon, Tristan, Ellis) and siblings Bud, Barbara and David.
Daniel was born in Seattle, found his true love in Vancouver, found purpose as a father in Prince George and retired to live out his days as a grandfather on Vancouver Island.
Daniel turned a love of music into a career in Broadcasting, which was fitting as Dan had a gift for ensuring dead air never followed him into any room. Never one to pass up the opportunity for conversation Dan made many friends in his lifetime and he knew happiness with them all.
Dan leaves two sons who will forever have the guide as to how to be a father. We know the sacrifices you made to raise two men can never be truly repaid. You will never be forgotten and are missed more than you could have known.
Who could have seen how far a faulty gas gauge on Lenore's car in 1974 could have taken two souls. Spanning half a century Daniel and Lenore found a love that would carry them around the globe but were always most at home with each other.
True love can never be forgotten and we are certain that somewhere Dan's voice can still be heard, if you listen close enough you will hear it echo in our hearts.
You were loved.
