Daniel was born in Kamloops, BC, on May 25, 1991 and was a life-long resident of Revelstoke. He moved to Victoria two months ago to pursue his musical passions. Daniel was a musician who played guitar and saxophone and also a writer who wrote wonderful poetry and music. He loved his friends and family and especially loved his brother and sister. He was a caring brother who always took good care of his siblings. Daniel had a new-found passion for travel and spent the winter in Norway with his friend Therese. He always stood up for the underdog and made others feel beautiful and special. Daniel did good for the community just by being himself and he was never afraid to show emotion and love.
