    My deepest condolences to Gerry and Marie as well as all of Danny’s siblings and Mary. I have very fond memories of visiting Danny and the rest of the family in Halifax (especially at the cottage with his famous lobster boils), and will always remember how kind he was to me. All my love goes out to the O’Malleys at this difficult time.

    Our heartfelt condolences go out to the O’Malley family. We just found out the sad news today. So sorry we missed the funeral. Danny and Greg were great friends growing up. In later years, Dan always made an effort to visit us on the way home from Granite Springs golf course. The last time he was here, he was very sad to see the progression of Alzheimer’s with Greg. Again please pass along our condolences to Gerald and Marie and their family, Dan’s boys and to you Mary.

    Dan was the best boss I ever had, he always made the time if I had to talk to him, and he always treated me like an equal, even though I was a lowly 20 something technician. Truly a great person, and a great sense of humor, I’ll remember him for his laughter. It was a full body laugh that was heart-felt and impossible to fake or properly duplicate. My thoughts are with Mary and his family, Dan will be missed but not forgotten

    I only met Dan on a few occasions, but his strength of character was such that those few occasions left a lasting impression. He was funny, charismatic, and generous. He went to the trouble to organize the O’Malley clan to greet my wife and I the last time we were in Halifax, despite the fact that I was a distant relative from Ontario that he’d only met briefly a decade before. From conversations with my mother Colleen, this kind of hospitality was typical of Dan.

    I regret that I didn’t get a chance to know him better.

    Cheryl, Bart and I were grateful for Dan’s friendship when he was at Western University. He took the train to Toronto many weekends to stay with his Aunt Mary and us. Most of those weekend nights he and our mom could be found in the kitchen, drinking tea and chatting into the wee hours. Dan was the big brother that Bart and I never had, and a feisty debating partner for my equally feisty sister, Cheryl.

    Only good memories of my favourite cousin.

    Sincere condolences to all of the O’Malley family. I worked with Dannie on many elections. He was the most politically astute person I ever worked with and would have made a great political representative for any party. I cherish many great memories of Dannie and he will truly be missed. God bless all of you during this difficult time.

    Carolyn, I am sending my deepest condolences on the passing of your brother Dan. I remember quite vividly in high school you often spoke well of Dan. You were very very proud of your siblings and no doubt very close. Remember in your grief that you are very lucky indeed to have a special family. Denise (MacDonald) Baker

    Hi Mary, Though we never had the pleasure of meeting your Dan, he looks like a great guy and his writing in his Obituary was very warming and all inclusive . We just wanted to let you know we are thinking of you and Jennifer at this time .

    My time with Dan was short-too short. He very quickly became a friend. As my buddy Jack said his personality written obit tells all the kind of man Dan was. He will be sorely missed in our RS golf games and I for one will surely miss those ‘little’ Dan tips! My heart and love goes out to Mary and the whole O’Malley family.

    Dan was a “golfing buddy” and more importantly friend. Dan had a quick wit and wonderful sense of humor. He was very welcoming and always made those around him feel comfortable. While I am so saddened by his passing my life has been enhanced by having Dan as a friend. I just wish it been longer.
    Dan may you Rest in Peace. You will never be forgotten friend.

I also know Marie and Jerry, Dan’s parents, and we would like to extend our condolences to them as well. Dan will live on in the memory of his loved ones and those he has touched.
