Daniel Earl Haffey
Daniel Earl Haffey passed away suddenly on Saturday March 12,2022 at home.
He touched many lives in his 55 years and most who were blessed to know him have a story to share about him.
Born in Montreal on May 1, 1966 to Suzanne and Patrick Haffey. He was born to be a storyteller and performer. He brought laughter and smiles to those he met.
He is survived by his wife of almost 25 years- Mary Haffey,
His two boys Trevor and Todd Dumond. He was blessed with 2 Grandchildren whom he adored with all his heart.
He is also survived by his parents-Suzanne Blanchet-Haffey of Acton,On and Patrick Haffey of Coquitlam, BC
As well as his siblings- John Haffey of Toronto, On; Kim Chasse(Robert) of Acton, On; and Tammy Inglis(Scott) of Burnaby, BC.
As well as many Nieces and Nephews who will remember him fondly.
Dan had a tremendous love of all animals. No matter where we went, he found an animal to give love to. Our Dogs, Clifford and Lilly miss him everyday.
He spent his life in many parts of Canada and loved the Outdoors. His time in Dawson City, Yukon was a cherished memory for him. Dan and I were blessed to be able to vacation regularly, but he especially loved the times we spent camping. He was active in Scouting in Richmond, BC and through this work made a difference in the lives of many, young and old alike. A great number of memories were created through his Campfire stories and songs. We can all agree that with Dan campfire was a full body experience.
There are strange things done in the midnight sun
By the men who moil for gold;
The Arctic trails have their secret tales
That would make your blood run cold;
The Northern Lights have seen queer sights,
But the queerest they ever did see
Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge
I cremated Sam McGee.
