They met one Sunday morning at Mass while they were each vacationing with friends at Lake Winnipeg.

They traveled both in the states and abroad, they enjoyed time at their home in Mesa Arizona as "snowbirds" with many of their friends and family during those 34 years. At age 70, Dan pursued his interest in art while in Arizona and even took 1st Place for one of his pastels! Dan also enjoyed his golf, and the beautiful Arizona weather allowed for lots of that! He and Mary were also very active members of the golf club at Summerfield, when they moved there in 2006. Without a doubt, Dan will be remembered most for the importance of God and Faith in his life, love of his Family, his big heart and his big smile!
