Daniel Dutton
August 28, 1957 - December 21, 2019

Daniel Dutton of Calgary passed away on December 21, 2019, at the age of 62 years old surrounded by family.

Dan was born on August 28, 1957 to parents Harry and Leontina Dutton. Dan will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 18 years, Kathy and his children Emily and Sarah and step-son Matthew Zegers (Jacqui). Dan will fondly be remembered by his brothers and sisters, Louise, Connie, Pat (Lorraine), Peter (Alice), Chris (Rita), Jim and Kathy’s extended family. Dan was predeceased by his parents and brother Frankie and sister Liz. Dan will also be remembered by numerous nieces and nephews and dear friends.

On the personal side, Dan, had many enjoyments in life. In addition to his day job as a courier, Dan took fondly to the comforts of home. His favourite sport was golf, trying to replicate Tiger Woods with every swing of the club! With his girls, Dan enjoyed watching sports such as hockey and football, and his love for the Calgary Stampeders was well known. Dan was a lover of warm weather, and taking his family on summer road trips had been a fond past time for numerous years. As such, Dan over the years broke many heated blankets in the winter on his big comfy chair that now sits empty. We will miss Dan over-cooking our steaks every single time with his beer in hand and blasting which ever football game was on at the time. Dan was a simple man and his gentle presence will forever be remembered by family and friends.

There will be a short graveside service in January 2020. We plan to have a Celebration of Dan’s Life in early April 2020.

I have to add that Dan's love for Kathy and his 2 daughters Emily and Sarah is unmeasured. He provided the best he could even as his health was failing he continued to work, Dan was selfless, loving and kind. His family was number one. But that was Dan, he never talked about himself.

How can a brother 13 months younger describe the loss? I think about our childhood living with parents that few could say were better. We had very little but we were rich with love, so poor that we looked forward to xmas time and going over to our neighbors Kelly and Freddy Scheer and sharing there xmas toys. Dan and I were dressed in similar clothing by mom so up until 8 or so everyone thought we were twins. We shared a Calgary herald paper route, we wrestled, we boxed against the Scheers and nobody could beat Dan and yes Dan knocked out Fred with a left hook....I thought he killed him. We played catch mostly with a football and Dan threw the nicest spiral pass that was long because he had a very strong arm heck guys would leave me open because no one thought he could throw the ball as far as he could. We played hockey and Dan could saucer the nicest pass right on the tape and his soft hands were especially represented in his chipping and pitching of the golf ball. Dan loved golf and was always working on a new swing, gosh his short game was good, I'd often tell him if he had my long game and I had his short game the 2 of us we make for quite a golfer. We loved our stamps and flames and ribbed each other about our hockey draft picks. We went on a golf trip annually for 30 plus years sharing stories, drinks, golf and fun with Rex, Kelly, Freddy, Casson and many others....memories we all will never forget. Sports aside one of the biggest thing about Dan was his kindness and compassion. He could be so stubborn yet kind, he treated my son Ryan like a son of his and always asked how Ryan was doing, Dan and I we enjoyed many a round......and a round of golf too. Dan wasn't a practicing catholic but he was born and raised one and I know he is in heaven now with mom, dad, Frankie and Elizabeth. My heart aches and I miss you Dan so very much. Dan's heart was bigger than most people you will ever meet. Rest in peace my brother.

Although we didn't see each other often I always considered Danny one of my oldest and dearest friends. You know that friend that whenever you hear from them or see them it's like you're at home. He was my constant partner in numerous activities against our younger brothers and I admit he was the only person in my life that ever knocked me to the ground with that wicked invisible left hook. We were boxing. He always wanted to know how my family was doing. He was a real caring person. I was able to have a final visit with Danny on the 21st. It was hard to see him in his state but he was still able to smile and he did. He talked of his family and was very proud of his daughters and his step son. He was dedicated to Kathy and always made sure he spoke to her every night that he was away from her whenever I was with him. I'm going to miss his quick wit and identifiable laugh. I'll miss him on the golf course with his although not long, always straight shots. Rest in Peace My Friend. Kelly
