Donald "Danny" Workman Obituary

Danny Workman - husband of Karen, father of Carie-Ann and Patrick and grandfather of Jesse, Joel and Autumn passed away at home Monday, November 20th at the age of 73.

Danny was the "Middle Child" born to Pat and Hilda Workman on July 21, 1950. He very much looked up to, admired his older brother Edward, and loved his little sister Beverly. As a little boy he followed his father around and wanted to be just like him. He was so disappointed when farming became more mechanised and the old ways of doing most of the work with horses disappeared. He bucked the trend as long as possible still doing chores with the horses. He got his father Pat interested in attending the odd Horse Pull with Mac and Patsy. Danny went on to train his own team of Draft Horses and entered some of the Pulls. His favourite though, was Pony Chariot and Chuckwagon racing. He made lifelong friends and still loved to visit and give advice to the guys right up until the end.

Danny's cattle herd was one of his proud accomplishments. He felt good knowing his cattle were always in good shape and several people bought the meat privately from him. He participated at the Foxwarren Fat Stock Show along with Edward and Bev and took the Champion Steer one year. Patrick and Carie-Ann followed in his footsteps, taking their calves to the Show. A few years later, Jesse, Joel and Autumn were in 4-H and Pee Wees and also got to go to Foxwarren.

Hunting was another favourite past time. Initially starting out with his Grandpa Corder and Uncle Dennis, he also went with Laurie Davison, Stan Deprez, Fred Haun and Delmar Bamford. There were many stories came out of those hunts and in 1987 he (with the help of his friends) got a buck that made it to the Record Book. Over the years Patrick, the Haun boys and Chris Deprez joined the hunting party. Danny was still able to go out when Jesse, Joel and Autumn took up the sport.

Danny was predeceased by his parents Addison (Pat) and Hilda Workman, brother-in-law Bill Stewart and his in-laws Ron and Dorothy Stewart.

Danny is survived by wife Karen (of 53 years), son Patrick (Crystal) daughter Carie-Ann (Jeremy), grandsons Jesse (Taylor), Joel and granddaughter Autumn, bother Edward (Darlene), sister Bev Curtis (Barry), sisters-in-law Donna Stewart, Rhonda Stewart (John Davidson), brother-in-law David Stewart (Gwen) nieces and nephews Michael Workman (Jennifer), Brianna (Evan), Mallory (Chris), Kim and Kaelin Grill, James Curtis (Jamie) Declan and Kaity, Ryan Curtis (Lindsey), Jade and Anne Aleena, Roxanne Osicki (Nick) Zaiden, Keaten, Beckett, Nicki and Tyler Stewart, Samantha Ranger (Pierre Andre) and David.
