Daniel Westman

8 August 1952 - 23 October 2014

Dan fought a short courageous battle with cancer that began July 8th, 2014 and ended October 23rd, 2014. Danny was born in Saltcoats, SK to Kelly and Lenore Westman. Danny lived in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Pine Point NT prior to making Yellowknife his permanent home in 1979. Dan worked for the GNWT during his time in Yellowknife and received his 35 year service award on September 19th, 2014. Dan met Paula, the love of his life, in Yellowknife. They welcomed their first daughter Lorraine in 1989 and their second daughter Natalie in 1993. Dan loved his girls and had no problem waiting for them in the mall reading a book while they shopped for hours. Dan and Paula finally tied the knot on June 15, 2014 on their roof top deck overlooking Yellowknife Bay. Dan is survived by his wife Paula Tremaine, daughters Lorraine Elizabeth and Natalie Engracia, brother Douglas, sister Debbie, nieces, nephews, and countless friends. 

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society.

The family would like to extend a very special thank you to the numerous health care professionals, family, and friends that were there for every step on this journey.

A celebration of life for Daniel will be held at the Top Knight in Yellowknife, NT on November 10th, 2014 beginning at 6pm.  

"And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."
