Passed away peacefully at home after a brief battle with cancer.
He is survived by his loving wife Barbara (Deakins) and sons Paul and Christopher (Bridget) and grandchildren Mikayla and Ariel, as well as his brother Stephen (Judy). Missed by his brothers- in- law Gary Prine (Brenda) and Wayne Prine and by many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He is predeceased by his parents Joseph Heeley and Patricia Heeley (Hughes) of Cambridge.
Dan was a gifted artist and loved nature and would see beauty all around him. In his younger years he was a sportsman enjoying the outdoors in all seasons whether it was golfing, hunting, fishing, boating or just out walking taking in the scenery. He loved the challenge of cross word puzzles and spending weekly time with his closest friend playing cribbage.
Cremation has taken place and a private family Celebration of Life will follow at a later date.
Memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Research Society would be appreciated.
