1965 – 2014
Mr. Daniel ‘Dan’ R. Dugas of Penhold, Alberta, passed away suddenly at his home on Sunday, July 13, 2014 at the age of 48 years. Dan was born on December 10, 1965 at Mattawa, Ontario to parents, Agno and Doreen Dugas. The family lived in North Bay, Ontario for most of his youth. Dan’s career began with Mac’s Convenience Stores in Ontario between 1984 and 2004 and then he worked for Rentcash Inc. during 2006 until 2008. At that time, Dan relocated to Alberta where he worked for Parkland Fuel Corporation as their Retail Regional Operations Manager, Western Alberta. Dan was a man of strong ethics; with a dedication and commitment to his work, as well as every other area of his life. He lived life with an intensity to excel; and a passion and zest for living. Dan was also the Head Coach of the Parkland Panthers Women’s Indoor Soccer Team. His enthusiasm and drive carried the team from last place to first place, winning the Championship Title during the 2013 – 2014 winter season. The 2014 summer season looks like another 1st place has been clinched. Dan was a devoted and loving father to his three children. He taught his children well, with that same strength of character and value for life; encouraging them to be the best they could be at all they do.
“Dan’s legacy of Love will remain through the lives and hearts of his children, family and all those whose lives he has touched.”
Dan leaves to mourn his loss, his loving children, Stefan of Penhold, Alberta, Amanda (Patrick Kavanagh) of Red Deer and Jessyca, also of Penhold. He will also be sadly missed by the mother of his children, Robin Dugas (Yarrow) of Stouffville, Ontario, as well as numerous other relatives and many dear colleagues and friends. Dan was predeceased by his mother, Doreen in 2013 and a brother, Michael in 1994. A Celebration of Dan’s Life will be held at Parkland Funeral Home and Crematorium, 6287 – 67 A Street (Taylor Drive), Red Deer, Alberta on Friday, July 18, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. If desired, Memorial Donations in Dan’s honor may be made directly to a Charity of the donor’s choice.
