DANIEL DA COSTA MARQUES November 26, 1949 June 24, 2012 After a brave and courageous struggle, Daniel peacefully passed away on June 24, 2012 at St. Boniface Hospital surrounded by close family and friends. He is survived by his loving wife Dolores; two daughters Annabella (Pavel) and Olga (Joel); grandchildren Hailey, Makaila and Myla; siblings José (Carma), Trindade (Luis), Jaime (Carma), Maria José (Joao); and several nieces, nephews, family and friends. He was predeceased by his father Antonio Luis Marques and mother Maria dos Prazeres Loureira da Costa. The family would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to the many doctors and nurses of Health Sciences Centre and St. Boniface Hospital for their continued care and support. The family would like to offer a special thanks to Michelle Brown who generously donated her bone marrow during Daniel's battle with leukemia. Without her selflessness and courage we would not have had the opportunity to share so many more memories with Daniel. He was actively involved in the Portuguese community, volunteering much of his time for several years to the Portuguese Association of Manitoba.
