WEISBECK, Daniel James

Daniel James Weisbeck, of Vancouver BC, passed peacefully with his children by his side, on January 12, 2018 at the age of 77. Born in Kelowna BC October 24, 1940 to Manuel and Celia (Fahlman) Weisbeck, Dan grew up helping on the family farm and orchard.

After graduating from Rutland High School in 1960, Dan moved to Vancouver to attend UBC where he completed his Bachelor of Arts Degree before obtaining his Chartered Accountant designation. In 1969, he married Barbara (Williams) and together started their family. In 1977, Dan moved the family to Abbotsford to join as a partner of McDonald, Plunz and Company. He remained with the firm through its various mergers eventually becoming a partner of KPMG.

Dan truly loved his work and enjoyed a long and successful career as a Chartered Accountant. Throughout his career Dan was highly respected for his professionalism, his integrity and his keen financial acumen. After his retirement as a partner with KPMG in 1999, Dan returned to Vancouver where he served on several boards and volunteered his time assisting small businesses and charities.

In later life, Dan faced many health issues with resilience, strength and tremendous courage. Family was always foremost in Dan's life. He is survived by daughter Karen (Alex), son David (Jacqueline), grandchildren Dylan, Cameron, Emma and Evan, sister Diane, brother Carson (Eunice), as well as numerous aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins and their families.

If friends so desire memorial tributes may be made to Spinal Cord Injury BC.

    I remember Danny from many years ago. He walked to school everyday going by our farm on McCurdy rd with his arms full of books but always had time to stop and talk to me when I was working near the road. He was in high school and I was in elementary but he always said keep working hard and you will get there too. Great memories of Danny. R.I.P.

    Danny was a true friend when growing up in Rutland. He was a companion in school and had integrity in all that we did . If there was trouble brewing he was always the mediator and was respected for being able to resolve a lot of issues. I enjoyed him as friend and learned a lot from him about life skills. My sincere condolences to all the family.
    Rest in peace Danny.
