LeGrandeur, Daniel John

Daniel John LeGrandeur passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2008, at his home in Fort Macleod, at the age of 70 years.
Dan was born and raised in the Fort Macleod area and comes from a well respected family that settled in southern Alberta in the late 1800s. Dan was the youngest of seven children.
In 1960, he married his loving wife Katherine (Davis) and had three sons. He will be best remembered as a school teacher and principal. Dan first started teaching in Nanton then opened the Willow Creek Composite high school in Claresholm. His legacy as principal in Claresholm will never be forgotten as there will never be a more respected teacher.
After a brief hiatus from teaching, Dan and his wife Kay took charge of the Halfway Native School in northern B.C. for 14 years. After 43 years of teaching, Dan retired in 2002 and returned to Fort Macleod to enjoy the rest of his years with family.
Dan was predeceased by his mother and father, Edith and Peter; and his sisters Esther, Mary (Bill) and May (Chick).
He is survived by his wife Kay; sons Dan (Laurel), Cary (Stacey) and Cam (Kim); brothers Ivan (Marianne), Ramon (Val) and Robin (Barbara); brothers-in-law John (Barb), Ken (Sandy), Rex, and John. He will be dearly missed by his grandchildren Alysha, Brett, Kale, Justin and Brady and by many nieces and nephews. In addition to his family, his many friends will truly miss Dan as well.
Funeral service will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2008, at 2 p.m. at Trinity United Church in Fort Macleod.
