PUDAS, DANIEL EDWARD
March 2, 1958 –
October 21, 2013
It is with great sadness and shock that we announce the unexpected passing of Daniel Edward Pudas at the age of 55 in Nanaimo, BC. Dan grew up the only brother of three sisters in Lappe. Dan lived his life fast and hard and always had a story to tell to anyone who would listen. One of his favorite places to be was his old lakefront home on Grandview beach; Looking out the big picture window every day and seeing the sleeping giant and hearing the crashing waves at night were some of the things he missed the most in his later years in BC. Taking his boat out onto Lake Superior and cruising to St. Mary’s Island or just exploring the lake were part of his daily life. He had many old and dear friends in his life and no matter how much time separated their visits; it was like no time had passed at all. In his later years he enjoyed a quieter lifestyle, staying at home and spending time with and helping his love and playing his racing games; Enjoying his “semi-retirement” as he liked to call it. Dan will be sadly missed by his loving partner and soul mate Tammy Boire and her son Nathan, his daughters Kirsten (Robb) Breckenridge and Shannen Pudas (Rob) along with his beautiful grandchildren Mirabel, Liily and Oren. He is also survived by his father Ed Pudas and his three sisters Linda Heiskanen, Gayle Little (John) and Susan (Joey) Schiphorst. His niece Seija Heiskanen (Nathan) and nephews Markku Heiskanen and Michael Maxwell and their children. Dan was predeceased by his mother Hazel Pudas. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will take place at the Macgregor Rec Centre on Lakeshore Drive on Saturday, November 9 at 1pm.
