Daniel Edwin Haines
Daniel Edwin Haines passed away Oct 30th, 2012 at 74. He was predeceased by his mother Muriel Robinson and father William Haines. He leaves behind his sister Yvonne Hunter and brother Darwin Haines, his twins Ronny and Donny Haines and his nieces Sandy and Debbie Haines. He will be greatly missed by his two step daughters Tamara Green and Heather Humchitt, granddaughter Felicia Green, and grandson Kaiden Wood.
Dan was born in Nelson BC, a painter by trade working most of his life in Campbell River as well as up and down the coast and in Alberta. He had many skills he used for employment such as working for his brother in-law Bob on the tug boat and working in the logging industry.
After years of moving from town to town, he landed in Fort Nelson where he stayed some years meeting many friends there. He returned to Campbell River to live out his remaining days with his sister, daughters, and grandchildren.
Dan was also an artistic painter and always had crafts and projects on the go. Many people have his artwork proudly displayed in their homes.
There is so much to say about Dan and his character, but most of all is how much we will all miss that “blackfoot Irishman.”
We will be having a celebration of his life on Saturday afternoon. For information please call Lisa at (250)203-4991.
