Dear Yvette and family, Terry joins me in expressing our most sincere condolences. Gizzy had such an open, warm personality and he never failed to brighten your day. His loss will be keenly felt by all who had the privilege of getting to know him. Terry has such warm memories of playing with him on the Old Kings and many amusing stories.

My deepest sympathies to Yvette and her family and friends. I have not seen Danny and Yvette for over 40 years. Still it hurts to lose such a special person. I cherish my childhood memories of growing up down the street from the Gelinas family. Hugs. - Posted by: Doris Duval (Friend) on: Jun 08, 2020

Dear Yvette and Family. We are so sorry to hear of Danny's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. - Posted by: Tanis & Hans Goretzki (lake) on: Jun 08, 2020
So sad to hear about Danny being diagnosed, and finally losing his battle with this terrible disease. I have known Danny for most of my life, and always marvelled at his zest for life, whether his being part of a teenage band, entertaining the rest of us at teen canteen, playing golf, or some of my favourite memories hanging out while playing Old Timers Hockey. His laugh was infectious, his smile heartwarming, and his friendship cherished. Lynn and I offer our heartfelt sympathy to Yvette, and all of their family. Sincerely, Kim and Lynn Sharpe Qualicum Beach - Posted by: Kim Sharpe (Friend) on: Jun 08, 2020
