Daniel James McFarland (Jamie) passed away suddenly at his residence on October 31, 2011. He was 40 years old.
Jamie was born and raised in Chilliwack. He will be remembered and missed by his parents, Mother Dawn and (Larry) Toop, his father Dan McFarland (Carol) and his brothers Scott (Maria), Craig (Ange), Lee and Fraser Mason. Two cousins that he thought of as brothers Darren Toop (Jody), and Dean Toop (Nadine) He had many Aunts and Uncles and cousins. Jamie was Uncle to Randy and Jessie McFarland, Landon and Ashlynn Toop, Blaire, Brooke and Randall Toop. Chris Clayton, Curtis and Jessica Toop. He loved his Uncle Pat, Auntie Nicki McPhail and Angie, his very good friend Daryl Jones.
Jamie was predeceased by his maternal grandparents Len and Gladys Adams. Fraternal grandparents Frank and Rachael McFarland, his Uncle Glen and “just like” brother Randy Toop.
Jamie was a great son and brother. He really loved being with his brothers, nieces and nephews. He loved his super sisters-in-law. They cooked him great meals. He often said that those families meant everything to him and he couldn’t wait to see all of them. He definitely will be missed for his “unique choice of language”. He had an unbelievable sense of humour and an infectious laugh. He could do something and whether right or wrong, he retold the story and you couldn’t help but laugh. He was hilarious. How could you be mad at him when he is bursting with laughter? He loved watching redneck movies. Larry the Cable Guy was one of his favourites.
Jamie drove a gravel truck from the age of 18. He worked for Dennis Hamilton and Brad Bassett (Chilliwack Gravel). He hated change and if he had to work a longer day than what he had planned, he was grumpy. That was our Jamie.
The family would like to thank Dr. Weatherston and the paramedics for everything they have done for him. We want to thank God for giving him to us for the past forty years.
There will not be a funeral service, but a Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 2:00 pm at the Atchelitz Hall on Lickman Road, Chilliwack. He will rest with his Grandparents, Len and Gladys Adams in the Royal Canadian Cemetery. They looked after him the first two hears of his life while his parents were working.
We love you Jamie. You will forever be in our hearts and it will be very difficult to go on without you. With love to you from the bottom of our hearts;
Mom and Dad and brothers.
