It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Daniel John McGrath, on February 3rd 2021 at the age of 57. Danny was surrounded by his loved ones when he lost his short but fierce battle with liver cancer.
Preceded in death by his wife Aprile Hale, his mother Daphne Patricia McGrath, his father Mike McGrath, his sisters Sandra Asselin and Maureen Alderman.
He was a cherished father to Shannon (Matt) Cheyanne (Bo) and Amber. He was a devoted grandfather to Kieran, Ryland, Brayden, Evelyn, Isabella, Ava, Caleigh, Reign, and Monroe. Danny is also survived by his siblings Barrie, Debbie, Mike and Kellie.
Danny’s parents raised him in Toronto alongside his siblings where his father proudly taught him how to fight. Danny went on to win many medals, as well as winning golden gloves for boxing.
Danny was a hard worker, working for local 721 as a rodman for over 20 years.
Danny was a good man with a big heart, he was loved deeply and will be missed by so many.
Due to covid we will not be having a funeral. When it is safe to do so, we will have a celebration of his life as he deserves.
We ask that you please leave any memories you have with him so we can remember all the amazing times.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society are appreciated.
