<div itemprop="description">MITTON, Daniel Mathew - Aug. 1, 1985-Feb. 17, 2017 <br>It is with overwhelming sadness that we, David and Laura Mitton, must announce the passing of our son. Daniel was a unique man of few words, who definitely walked down his very own path in life. He had a carefree attitude - a no nonsense approach to life and he had a very special, unbreakable bond with his two brothers Christopher and Andrew. <br> Ultimately the love of his life, and the center of his world was his son Malcolm (9). There wasn’t anything in the world more important to him. They spent many hours together just enjoying each other’s company and the spirit of their activity. It did not matter what they were doing, or who was around, they would lose themselves in just being together. <br> Daniel was born in Brampton, Ontario and moved to Mount Uniacke at the age of two. Growing up together the three boys spent many hours playing hockey, swimming and boating on the lake, exploring the woods, climbing trees, and discovering life together. That shared, unbreakable bond carried right through into adult life where they shared homes and even continued to play soccer on the same team. <br> Daniel attended nursery school, elementary junior and high schools, playing baseball and soccer, and was involved in cubs and the junior firefighters in the Uniacke area. From these experiences he made some lifelong friends. <br> In later years he attended NSCC and received a diploma in Pipe Trades. For entertainment Daniel enjoyed a quiet night at home watching his movies or playing a friendly game of Darts along with a few pints to either celebrate his victories or drown his sorrows in defeat with companions. <br>We will miss Daniel’s kind eyes and alluring smile, his humor and the ability to make us all laugh to the point of tears, the strength in his resolve, his soft nature, his large heart, and for his ability to always keep it real. <br>Daniel’s sole purpose in life was to ensure Malcolm’s comfort, his safety and above all else to provide everything that he possibly could from his heart to ensure Malcolm felt loved and cared for. <br> There is a void in our hearts that will never be filled by another person of Daniel’s caliber. He will be dearly missed by all of his family and friends, both here at home and away. <br>As we bid the fondest farewell to Daniel, beloved father, brother and son, let’s keep his memory alive by saying goodbye the way he would: with a simple nod of the head and a small gesture of the hand! <br>Visitation will be held from 1pm to the time of the memorial service at 2 pm Friday February 24th at Atlantic Funeral Home 125 Sackville Dr. Lower Sackville. Daniel was not a real floral type of man, his only love was for Malcolm. So in lieu of flowers we welcome donations toward a trust fund to be set up in Malcolm’s honour. Even though the time for goodbye has come, we take comfort in the thought that Dan lives on in young Malcolm. <br> <br>For information to make donations to Malcolm's trust account please email Dave and Laura at: coachmitton@eastlink.ca <br></div>
