We sadly announce the sudden passing of Daniel Isaachsen on January 14, 2017. Dan was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan on May 22, 1947. He grew up on the family farm in Canwood, Saskatchewan with his parents Erling and Nannie and his five sisters. At the age of 19, he moved to BC where he worked in Honeymoon Bay and then spent 35 years as a crane operator and then a power engineer at the Youbou sawmill until it closed in 2001.
Dan’s passion was sports. He loved hockey and spent many years in the baseball community as a well-known fastball pitcher and umpire.
Married for 41 years, Dan will be mourned by his wife Joan, his son Jeff (Genny) and daughters Tammy and Erin. He will be greatly missed by his grandchildren; Hayley and Megan Isaachsen and Makenna and Declan Forcier. He is survived by three sisters, Doreen, Louise and Judy and was predeceased by his sisters Betty and Shirley. Dan was also an uncle to many nieces and nephews.
