September 29, 1993 – May 1, 2013
On Wednesday, May 1, 2013 our community lost an amazing son, brother, and friend. Daniel Lamola was a first generation Canadian, born to parents Aldous and Mary Lamola on September 29, 1993.
Early on, sports became an important part of his life. Daniel played soccer, basketball and enjoyed skateboarding, but his real passion was football. He played for the Hilltoppers, the Notre Dame Pride and the University of Calgary Dinos, where he was a defensive lineman.
Daniel was a student in his second year at the University of Calgary, and enjoyed spending time with his friends and listening to music. He especially enjoyed camping trips with friends and movie nights with family. Daniel was inquisitive and liked reading biographies and inspirational books in his spare time. He had a good sense of humour, liked to make people laugh, and was very quick to forgive. Daniel will be remembered for his patience, gentle nature, the way he treated others with kindness, and the way he always made time for the people in his life.
Daniel is survived by his parents Aldous and Mary; and sisters, Susan, Mercy and Karen.
A Memorial Service will be held in the Jack Simpson Gymnasium at the University of Calgary (2500 University Drive NW) on Friday, May 10, 2013. Parking is available in Lot 10 and doors open at 9:30 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
