Following in his father’s footsteps, Dannie loved the game of baseball and soccer. In his younger years, he found great joy playing a game of baseball with friends, playing into his 50’s and giving back to his community by coaching girl’s soccer.
Dannie was a pipe fitter, local 682 and worked in the oilfields of Alberta. Later in life, he was a proud member of legion 128 Whitney Pier, and made many new friends. He will be missed by all who knew him.

It was hard for Blaise Nadine and myself to go but we did. For how much I seen you we always had a good laugh with you. You will truly be missed by all. I was sitting down thinking the night before thinking of you Mr. Uncle Baseball. So I came up with an idea on my own to say goodbye. It hit me I’m gonna bring down a baseball for you. The first person I talked to was Sadie and gave her a hug and I reached into my pocket and pulled out a baseball. She was surprised and she said can I have that we have his glove but we don’t have a baseball. I said take it and she said do you want it back I said it’s for Mr. Baseball it stays with him. That I think that would be up to his sons Troy and Todd. That was a beautiful ceremony I did have tears and Blaise for him RIP Mr. Uncle Baseball.
