DANIEL (DAN) CHEESEMAN
It is with broken hearts that the family of the late DANIEL CHEESEMAN of Marystown announces his passing. Daniel passed peacefully away at the Health Science Center in St. John’s on December 5th, 2018 at the age of 65. Leaving to mourn with cherished memories are his wife Marion of 44 years; son, Stephen (Victoria); daughter, Krista Ennis (Jim); 3 much beloved grandchildren, Maria, Natalie and Ryan; his mother Adele Cheeseman; brothers, Norbert (Susan) and Charles (Minda); sister, Josephine; mother-in-law Blanche Myles plus a large circle of extended family and friends.
Daniel was a lover of music and had a natural gift for playing a variety of musical instruments, including guitar, accordion, mandolin and banjo. He frequently volunteered his talent to entertain at venues such as seniors homes. An avid sports lover, he also throughout his life gave generously of his time coaching minor hockey and softball. His friends and co-workers will remember him not only for his volunteering and music but also for his sense of humor, and his practical jokes. He will forever be missed for his deep love for family, his bright endearing smile, his piercing blue eyes, and lust for laughter.
In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer donations in his memory to the Kids Eat Smart Foundation of Newfoundland & Labrador (www.kidseatsmart.ca).
