In loving memory of Daniel Melvin Lone, who journeyed to his final resting place on April 10th, 2024. A true renaissance soul, he wore many hats throughout his 52 years on this earth, leaving behind a legacy rich in adventure, laughter, and craftsmanship.

Born on August 25th, 1971 to Melvin and Stella Lone in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Dan embraced life with an insatiable curiosity and a knack for turning dreams into reality. As a master angler, he found solace by the water’s edge, casting lines and reeling in tales of the one that got away.

Dan is predeceased by his sister Angela.

Dan will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Melody; his children Gina (Colby), Kelly, Jessica (Brendon); his grandchildren Hazleigh, Maeva, and Jasper; parents Melvin and Stella; sister Amy (Mark), as well as extended family and all who had the privilege of knowing him and sharing a laugh with him.

A true outdoorsman at heart, Dan found his great joy amidst the rugged beauty of nature. Whether he was mudding with friends, casting lines while fishing, or camping with Melody. Amid these adventures, Dan’s love for laughter and camaraderie shone brightly. He cherished nothing more than sharing a hearty laugh and a good joke with friends and family, creating memories with those around him.

A skilled taxidermist, Dan possessed a unique talent for preserving the beauty of wildlife, capturing moments in time with meticulous care and craftsmanship. His green thumb brought life to gardens blooming with vibrant colours and bountiful harvests, a testament to his nurturing spirit and love for all living things.

Dan was a visionary with a mind constantly buzzing with new ideas and projects waiting to be brought to life. Whether tinkering with his trains, or other hobbies, he approached every challenge with determination and ingenuity, proving time and again that he could build or fix anything that crossed his path. In the hearts of those who know him, Dan will forever be remembered as a beloved husband, father, son, brother, friend, and mentor. His laughter will echo in our memories, his wisdom will guide us in times of uncertainty, and his spirit will live on in the stories we share and the lives he touched.

Dan explored many career paths along the way, until finding and settling in as a dedicated and valued member of the Plett Trucking team.

Dan Lone started working for Plett Trucking in December of 2008. He came to us as a driver. In an industry where truck drivers stay truck drivers and mechanics stay mechanics, Dan accomplished something very rare by moving into and through the positions that he did. In his last position as a load planner, he was well liked by colleagues and well respected by those he encountered in the transportation industry

As we bid farewell to Dan, let us take comfort in knowing that his legacy of passion, humor, and bountied lists boundless creativity will endure for generations to come. May he rest in peace surrounded by the beauty of the natural world he so cherished.

A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 pm on Friday, April 19, 2024 at Crossings Funeral Care.
