Dennis “Dan” Heather

Posted: August 13th, 2014

Dennis “Dan” Heather passed away on Sunday, July 20, 2014, at age 76, beloved husband for 22 years of Jill of Black Diamond, AB, son of the late George and Olga Heather, brother of Gene [Starla], and Marcille [Gary], and father of Toni.

Dear God,
Dan Heather is on his last Trail Ride, on his way to see you—

I am not sure how things work up there but I would like to give you a little insight. He is very stubborn, and hard headed, if you need help call his mum, she will grab him by the scruff of his neck and very politely tell him to smarten up. He can also be calmed down by a kitten in his lap.

He is a wonderful leather worker and silversmith, all self taught. Please do a spell check for him. Give him a pocket knife and he can make anything, it might not be pretty but it will work. He was a great camera man just make sure it is not Panavision gear.

If you need advice on how to fix the world’s problems, he will tell you what to do.

My suggestion is to put him on a mountain top, with fresh cold spring water, lots of bacon, eggs, butter and steaks, a crusty old coffee pot and invite his buddies. Oops, forgot the big bottle of whiskey.

If you need a break, just listen to the stories they will tell—

Love you Dan.

    its 1/29/19 I just searched to see if I could find Dan and now I know.
    Dan was my father I was born on March 8 1967 in Indio California . My mother and Dan split up not long after I was born and I never knew him until I searched for him in 1987 when I found his number in the whitepages and decided to call him . it was his birthday and he said it was the best birthday gift he had ever received . I visited him and even lived with him for a couple months . A good guy whom I regret not knowing better. We had a lot in common . outdoor stuff and horses. photography.stuff like that. Unfortunately I never met any of my relatives but maybe someday.
    Dan it was good to meet you and get to know you a bit . I have a lifetime of regret not really knowing you . But perhaps we can meet in the afterlife and a Mountain in Alberta, or Switzerland. RIP love Dallas
