SHEMEN, Daniel Stephen

I would like to announce the sudden passing of my dad, Daniel Shemen, on Friday, June 17, 2022.  He was surrounded by the people he loved; his daughter Alexandra, his partner Jacqueline, his sister Ann-Marie, and buddy Desmond.  Dad was born July 16, 1962, to Steve and Frances Semen (both predeceased).  My dad was a kind and gentle man.  At his request there will be no funeral.  Cremation arrangements entrusted to the McINTOSH-ANDERSON-KELLAM FUNERAL HOME LTD., 152 King St. E., Oshawa, ON (905-433-5558).  In memory of dad, donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.  Please keep him in your heart.

    My deepest condolences to you and your family. I’m so sorry you’re going through this, and I’m so sorry this goodbye was so soon. Wishing you and your family strength and comfort during this difficult time, my heart is with you all. Please know that I’m only one call away if you need anything. 
    I can say with certainty that your father did an amazing job raising you and shaping you into the hardworking and strong woman that you are. I hope you always know that your Father is so proud of you and loved you so much. 
    From my time spent with Dan, he always knew how to tell a great story. He spoke so fondly of summers together as you grew up, reminiscing on the good times and telling funny stories. I’ll always remember our time together fondly, he always welcomed me like a member of the family, and for that I’ll always be so grateful. 
    Rest easy Dan, you will be missed by many.

    Dan was a very good man. He was patient, polite, knowledgeable, and caring. He will be missed by my son and I who grew very close to him. He taught me how to fix my own car and many other things. He will be deeply missed.
