He was predeceased by grandparents Robert and Rae Deblois of North Bay and Henri and Veronika Petri of Powassan, Ontario.
Daniel was educated in North Bay and was subsequently drawn to the Pacific coast of Canada at an early age. He loved the beauty, the weather and the proximity to the ocean as well as the Fraser River waterfront of New Westminster.
