HERRON, Hugh Daniel (Dan)

May 6, 1947 – Prince Albert, Saskatchewan
January 28, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Dan spent his career as an energy trader. Dan was a poet at heart. He would recite a few lines of Ozymandias by Shelley on occasion: “My name is OZYMANDIUS, King of Kings. Look on my works ye Mighty, and despair!” Dan was King of Kings on Mt. Norquay riding 215s, knees glued together. Dan was King of Kings, fishing for Rainbow Trout on hikes from Kananaskis to Jasper. Dan was King of Kings of the golf course, one-liner, University of Calgary Ski Club and, of course, his family. Dan’s family and friends loved him so much, and now we all despair at his passing. Dan was born in Prince Albert to loving parents Margaret and Arthur Herron, the second of three brothers between John and Bruce.

He is survived by his wife, Joy; sons, Kyle and Tim; and grandchildren, Caelen and Anna – and lives on in our memories and favourite stories

The family will host a celebration of his life at a pub in a month or two. If you would like to receive an invitation, please email The family would also like to receive your favourite Dan stories and memories. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, 200 – 325 Manning Rd. N.E., Calgary, AB T2E 2P5 Telephone: (403) 205-3966, email
