Daniel Joseph Ethier, 54, passed away in Westminster, Colorado on Wednesday, May 15, 2019.
Born June 24, 1964 in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada, son of Rheal and Annette (Carriere) Ethier.
Dan was always ready for an adventure and home was where ever he and his love, Renee, were together. They called many cities home over the course of their incredible 29 years together. From small towns in Northern NY, to the beaches of Bradenton, FL, but nothing compared to life in the amazing Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Spending time in Rocky Mountain National Park was by far one of Dan’s favorite things to do. Nothing made him happier than a day trip to the park with a picnic lunch.
Dan was a jack of all trades, having done everything from making Canadian Military uniforms, a department manager at a retail store, to his favorite job of being a Maintenance Supervisor. After losing his eye sight to Type 1 Diabetes, Dan retired from work and became a Domestic Engineer. He never let his vision loss stop him from finding ways to help. He loved to take care of all the work around the house and was passionate about cooking. He enjoyed trying new recipes and was a fantastic chef.
Dan also had a passion for music and was an amazing singer. Together with Renee they spent many years doing their karaoke and DJ business, Duet with Dan and It Takes Two. Dan’s love of music had him performing at weddings, funerals, nursing homes, private parties, and raising his voice in praise and worship at church.
Dan is survived by his loving wife, Renee (Munson) Ethier, son, Nick (Courtney) Cote, many in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends. Dan was preceded in death by his parents, Rheal and Annette Ethier.
