Obituary of Daniel Rick Fortin

It is with heavy hearts that Paul and Annie Fortin announce that their son Daniel Rick Fortin unexpectedly passed away on Friday, February 16th at the age of 32.

Always jovial, Daniel is remembered as a kind soul who was always willing to help his family and friends.

Daniel attended A.N. Myer High School and graduated from Fanshaw College as a mechanic. Daniel cherished his prized ‘89 Mustang, which he built with his father who was his best friend. Daniel was infinitely proud of the time he spent on the show American Hot Rod with his dad in the late 2000s. Always a foodie, he enjoyed frequent dinners with his mother.

Daniel leaves behind a sister Krystle (Kevin), and two nephews. Daniel also remained close to his extended family. He will be missed by his Godfather and Uncle, the late Gene (Larrisa), cousin Ashton (Roger), Uncle Rich and Aunt Shirley, cousins Kim (Greg), Kelly (Cam), Megan (Johnny), Uncle Simon and Aunt Joy, cousins Bianca (Tim), Stephen, Uncle Andrew and Aunt Judith, and cousins Michael, Shawn, Uncle Smokey (Sandra), cousins Marko, Nick (Sharon), Katelyn (Dan), Aunt Diane, cousins Monika (Frank) and Vince (Lisa).

Daniel will forever be deeply missed by his family and friends; we remain grateful for the time we had with him.

Immediate family is invited to join in a celebration of life at Americana Resort & Spa Saturday, February 24th from 2-4. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to Pathstone Mental Health.

Condolences to the family and friends of Daniel.
Being his Landlord of Imperial Towers, I usually saw Daniel in my office on a monthly basis and the odd time throughout the premises walking to his vehicle. Daniel was always pleasant and I enjoyed speaking with him when I had the chance.
My thoughts and prayers surround your family.
