On February 14, Daniel Alexander Monilaws, born July 26, 1949, left us to start a new journey.
His positive attitude and passion for life never wavered, a love of the outdoors, music and family was always in his heart.
He leaves behind his two daughters, Tanya (Jeff) and Brandy (Ryan); grandchildren, Daniel, Veronica, Kassandra, and Carter. Dan was the first to pass of the “Seven Dwarf” clan, Ann, Jane, Carol, Tom, Celia, Graem. So many other family and friends have been by his side, wish we could mention you all.
A heart-felt thank you to the staff at the University of Alberta Hospital/Mazankowski Centre, our second family; if it was not for you, this would have been written long ago.
“Life’s journey is not to arrive safely in pristine condition, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, ‘Holy #%&*…What a ride!’”
A Celebration of Life will be held at The Nisku Inn, 1101 – 4 Street, Nisku, AB on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 5:00 p.m., open to all who knew him.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, #144, 5241 Calgary Trail NW, Edmonton, AB T6H 5G8.
