Daniel Garth Peterson

May 6, 1982 – January 1, 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce that our beloved son, Daniel passed away suddenly on Friday, January 1, 2021 at the age of 38.
Dan is survived by his 3 young sons, Hayden who is 6 and Caige and Hunter who are 4. The boys were the loves of his life. Dan also leaves to forever miss him his parents, Craig and Cheryl Peterson of Port Alberni; brother, Jamie (Ashley) Peterson; nephews, Trevan, Ryder, and Jaxon of Red Deer, Alberta; grandfather, Peter McLellan of Nanoose Bay; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family members and close friends.
Dan was predeceased by his grandparents, Pete and Isabel Peterson; “Ma” Shirley McLellan; and uncle, Steve McLellan.
Dan’s love for his 3 boys was beyond measure. They loved going to the park, beach, sledding in the snow (the bigger the hill the better), motorbike rides, jumping on the trampoline together, and many more adventures all the while making memories to treasure forever.
Born in Nanaimo on May 6, 1982, Dan grew up on Lasqueti Island. In December of 1995, the family moved to Port Alberni where Dan attended school at Klitsa, AW Neill, and ADSS.
Dan spent hours working on his numerous cars and trucks. He also had a love of drawing and spent many happy hours creating his works of art. Dan was also a great storyteller. His stories pretty much always started with “This one time . . .”, while laughing. Dan loved to make people laugh and loved to tell jokes! He always talked about becoming a Stand Up Comedian.
A Celebration of Life will be held in his honour at a later date.
Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure.
You are loved beyond words and are missed beyond measure.
