LAMOLA, Daniel Akena

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. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made directly to the University of Calgary Football Daniel Lamola Memorial Fund at any TD Canada Trust branch under the name “Dan Lamola Memorial Fund” or cheques may be made out to “Dan Lamola Memorial Fund” c/o Dinos Football (Kinesiology Bldg. 2500 Univeristy Drive NW Calgary, AB T2N 1N4).

In living memory of Daniel Lamola, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot Chapel, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. Telephone: (403) 241-0044.

    All my hope is gone, but only God can restore my hope. He gave us Daniel, a very loving and happy person and the same God took him away. May the living and loving God restore our hope once again. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
    A word of encouragment to my sister Mary – God remembers us even at the time of trouble, never foresake him.
