It is with heavy hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of Dan McColl on Sunday April 27, 2014, in his 55th year.
Loving and devoted father to Tracy Galizia (Chris), Ashley (Rob Gibson), and Kailey (and their mother Marlene). Special grandpa of his little rugrats Alex and Cameron. Cherished son of Rodney and Rhoda McColl, and devoted brother to Sherri Humphries (Marty), Andy (MaryLou Devon), Melanie Walton (Shawn), and the late Ted. Dan will be missed by his special buddy and travelling companion Swiffer. Dan was a caring and loving son, dad, grandpa, nephew, uncle and friend to many.
His infectious smile never wavered even as life became more difficult as the ALS progressed. Whether he was lending a hand to family and friends, telling jokes or stories, or being that compassionate ear, Dan lived his life through his genuine and pure heart. One of dad’s favourite songs was “I’m No Stranger to the Rain” and though he faced many struggles in his life, his sunshine always poured out to those around him. You will forever live in our hearts.
Friends may call at the Arthur Funeral Home & Cremation Centre on Thursday, May 1, 2014 from 6-9pm. Funeral service to be held in the chapel on Friday, May 2, 2014 at 11am. Mr. Jim Tulloch officiating. Interment West Korah Cemetery.
