Dan Savage an Extraordinary Man
It is with great sadness we share the news that Dan Savage passed away on December 26, 2022, surrounded by his wife and children, after a heart issue.
Dan Savage was one of the first members of the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue, Station 5 – Crescent Beach (formerly the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary) and was instrumental in building it into a first class unit. He spent countless hours and over 20 years volunteering with the local marine search and rescue, became a board member and president of the Semiahmoo Peninsula Marine Rescue Society and Dan also served on the RCMSAR provincial Board of Governors. Dan loved being involved in search and rescue, he was a constant, always there when needed and forever the gentleman. He will be greatly missed by us all.
