Jim Leask:

I first met Dan in the early 80’s when he helped me with a hydrated well. Through the years he was there for me a number of times that seemed to often were in the middle of the night. Always cheerful, professional and knowledgeable. As his business grew I saw him less in work environments and more at car shows, so got to see him in his passion. He will be missed. My condolences to you Frances and family.

Bruce & Judy Hutton:

Howard Kirby:

It was a great pleasure to know this man I called a friend. Funny I started with an oil company doing sales and met him while working in the area. Turns out he knew most of my family that grew up in the Rocky area which in turn made for some very interesting visits. I will dearly miss those visits. To Frances and the family you're in Dawn and my thoughts and prayers. Dan I will miss our visits. Frances I will stop by when this Virus thing is over and have a visit . God Bless

Rick and Rhonda Verreault :

We are so very sorry to hear about the passing of Danny. He was such a wonderful man and boss to Rick and our son Allan. We are sending our thoughts and prayers to Frances and the family.
