It is with heavy hearts that we say our last goodbye to a wonderful husband and father. After a short battle with cancer, Dan passed away peacefully in the Bulkley Valley District Hospital in Smithers, with his family and twin brother by his side.
Dan moved to Smithers from Corner Brook, NFLD in 1984 where he worked for CN Rail until he retired in 2017. He leaves to mourn, is his wife and best friend of 45 years, Janie Beck and daughter Erica (Terrence) Hiscock and grandsons Troy and Ryan; son Danny and granddaughter Kenadie; and daughter Samantha.
He is also survived by his siblings; Edward ‘Ned’ (Beatrice ‘Beat’), Charles, Fred (Myrna), Bernice (Bud), Gerald ‘Jeff’ (Martha), Thomas ‘Jim’ (Nicole), Roy ‘Bim’, Terrance ‘Jers’ (Catherine), Randy (Paulette), Viola ‘Dode’, twin brother Larry (Marie), Selwyn ‘Mouch’ (Catherine) and mother-in-law Francis Beck and the Beck family.
Dan is predeceased by his dad Joseph ‘Ned’ Duhart and mother, Mary Elizabeth Matthews as well as Piercy, Greta and Robert Benoit and many of the Benoit family.
Thank you to the staff at the hospital and the home care nurses who were all so awesome, and to Dr. Morkle. Special thanks to Barrie, Baron (Anna) Carter, Andrea Arnold and all the Carters family for all the love and support through this hard time. Thanks to our very special friends of over 25 years for the great friendships and to Kathy Demarce.
We miss you dearly dad. Till we meet again.
