Danny Joseph Dorey
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Danny Dorey, age 54 of Fox Point, on March 16, 2018 in the Halifax Infirmary ,after a brief illness. Born in Halifax, he was the son of Daniel and Olive(Lerch). He is survived by sisters, Sharon, Northwest Cove; Linda Wakeling (Paul), Calgary; brothers, Scott, Halifax; Harvey, Florida; Niece, Melissa Yue (Andrew Chan); several cousins. Danny graduated from Chester Municipal High School and attended St. Mary's and Acadia University. Since the age of 13, Danny suffered from chronic back pain and had several surgeries without success. In his earlier years he held many jobs within the community. Even though Danny did not have a typical life, he continued to enjoy gardening and cooking. We fondly remember the stuffed potatoes, pepper steak, eggrolls and meatballs, to name a few. Danny also dabbled in wine making. He made a very strong white wine which definitely made your problems go away. Danny was "Mr. Fix It" at the house, as he had those skills similar to his Dad. Danny had a strong fondness for animals, and will be missed by his friend, Skipper the dog. The family takes comfort in the fact that Danny is no longer in pain. Organ donation and cremation has taken place. At Danny's request, no funeral will be held. Donations can be made to SHAID Animal Shelter. A big thanks to Dr. MacLean and the staff of the ICU unit at the Infirmary, especially Nurse Joan, who often held his hand. Although it was hard at times to count Danny's blessings, he did have two, Mom and Dad. He was grateful for that.
