Daniel (Dan) Gagnon, 100, died on June 23, 2022.
Born on Oct. 6, 1921, in Tupper Lake, he was the son of Joseph & Regina (Bernier) Gagnon. He was the youngest of five children.
He lived in the Tupper Lake/Lake Placid area his entire life. He worked for many years at the Oval Wood Dish in Tupper Lake until it closed, then worked for the Lake Placid Club for many more years.
Until he was 95 years old, his favorite thing to do was to walk around Mirror Lake every day. He could outwalk his walking partners, who were mostly much younger, and he loved that!
He was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Regina; brothers Billy (Oahu, Hawaii) and Joe (Cheyenne, Wyoming); and sisters Lorena and Rose (Tupper Lake).
Survivors include one niece, two nephews and many grand nieces and nephews.
The family requests any donations be sent to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, as Dan was a regular donor.
The M. B. Clark, Inc., Funeral Home in Lake Placid is in charge of arrangements.
