Obituary For Daniel James Wathen

October 8, 1961 – June 9, 2021

Daniel James Wathen was born on October 8, 1961, the second child of Betty Wathen and the late Gordon Wathen. He was a resident of the Buffalo Lakes, AB area, and passed away at his home on June 9, 2021. Dan was born in High River, AB and grew up on a farm in the Bezanson area.

Dan loved nature and lived a quiet secluded life on a lakeside acreage. He was always an early riser and loved looking out every morning for swans, ducks, and bald eagles on the lake. He was an avid daily walker and gardener. He enjoyed spending his days puttering around his yard, gardens, and equipment. No weed had a chance in Dan’s yard. He loved working on and tinkering with small engine repairs. He spent many years going to local
auctions and finding deals to buy and sell.

Dan will be remembered and dearly missed by his mother, Betty Wathen, and siblings Chester, Keith (Patty), Karl (Tammy), Nina (Chester Groner) and numerous nephews and nieces.

Dan has been cremated. A private family graveside service is planned.

Care entrusted to Bear Creek Funeral Home 780 830 7742
