In Celebration of
Daniel James "DANO" Otrosina
December 4, 1962 -
October 29, 2022
Sadly, Daniel Otrosina’s journey of life came to a sudden end on Saturday, Oct 29th, 2022. At the young age of 59, Dan received his angel wings. His wife, and family, lovingly surrounded him as he passed peacefully.
Survived by his loving and devoted wife Rosa Comes and two stepdaughters, Amanda & Elisabeth.
His mother, Anne Otrosina and her late husband, William (Bill) Otrosina.
Sister Joyce Chrzan, brother-in-law Mike Chrzan, niece, Chrissy, and nephew, Mike.
At a young age, Dan was inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughan, which led him to a great love of music and endless nights of guitar playing. His passion for music led him to attend many concerts and festivals in all genres.
His love for music introduced us to Johnny Max, who hosted trivia every Wednesday at the Harp in Port Credit. Dan's love for trivia introduced us to many friends whom we have kept in touch with over the years. To friends that knew him - he always mentioned that his brain was filled with useless information. That information kept us coming for more fun and laughs.
Dan enjoyed watching classic Hollywood movies on Turner Classics. Many Sunday mornings were spent watching Natalie Wood, Alfred Hitchcock, Marilyn Monroe and the list can go on.
One of his favourite pass times was going to car races – may it be Formula 1, Le Mans or Indy - Dan enjoyed the need for speed. He was looking forward to seeing Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) achieve his eighth win.
Dan believed that you needed to enjoy life through experiences. His motto was an experience becomes a memory that you will carry in your heart forever.
His experiences took him and his family to Europe or a driving journey to Peele Island.
On this journey – he enjoyed a classic gin martini, great cuisine and a fine bottle of wine.
His famous words – when I die – I want to come back as a fine bottle of wine.
Dan will be incredibly missed by his wife, family and friends.
A celebration of life will be held on November 26, 2022 between 12 - 5pm at the family home, 25 Tranquil Drive, Etobicoke.
At this time, the family requests that instead of sending flowers; donate to either the Heart and Stroke Foundation or CAMH in Dan’s honour.
