Obituary for Daniel Sean McRae

St. Albans – Daniel Sean McRae was affectionately known to friends and family as “Dan”, “Danny”, “Uncle Dino”, “Shaggy” and “Uncle Skateboard”. On August 9th, 2009, at the age of 27, Dan unexpectedly departed from us. Daniel was born on December 23, 1981, at the Northwestern Medical Center and was a lifelong resident of St. Albans. He leaves behind a large community of grieving family and friends. Among them are his parents, Gordon and Marie McRae, his siblings, Rachel Repetto, her spouse and family, Sara Hansen and her spouse and family, Abraham, Samuel, Joanna, Jessamyn, Annalissa and Logan McRae and Melissa Button and her children. He also is survived by his grandparents, aunts, uncles and a dozen nieces and nephews who will forever grieve his loss. Dan made many friends throughout his 27 years of life. Everyone has remained loyal since their friendship began. He was a man whose circle of love kept expanding like the ripples in a pond. Dan was fiercely loyal. For all of you who have been there over the last few years, thank you. Dan loved the outdoors. He loved his dog, “Red” and his cat, “Mr. Cat”. His love of skateboarding, snowboarding, four-wheeling, fishing, hunting, hiking began during High School and lasted to the end. Dan threw himself with abandon into physical pursuit of these activities alone and preferably with friends. Daniel was a great cook who hosted barbecues all summer long. He enjoyed the company of others and always brightened the room when he entered. For those who knew him well, we will all miss his sense of humor, his helpfulness and most of all his loyalty. Dan was a selfless, caring man who wanted all those around him happy. He would lend a helping hand, no matter the reason with no thought of what he would gain in return. He would quite literally give you the shirt off his back or go the extra mile any time of day or night. A funeral service will be held on Monday, August 17, 2009, at 12:00 Noon at the Church of the Rock on the Fairfax Road. The Reverend Roland Ludlam will officiate. Daniel’s family will receive friends on Monday, August 17th from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM in the Heald Funeral Home, 87 South Main Street. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider the Franklin County Humane Society, 30 Sunset Meadows, St. Albans, Vermont 05478 or the Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge, 29 Tabor Road, Swanton, Vermont 05488. Assisting Daniel’s family is Raymond “Rett” Heald. Private messages of condolence are welcome at
