James Quayle

Sept. 26, 1943 — Sept. 2, 2013

Dan left this life on Sept. 2, 2013, as a result of pancreatic cancer. He died peacefully in his home and in the company of loved ones. He was preceded in death by his father, Jim; and nephew, Sean. He is survived by and will be lovingly remembered by his mother, Dorothy and stepfather, Glenn; his wife of 35 years and best friend, Carol; son, Ward; daughter, Wendi; grandchildren, Ryan, Steven and Danielle; brother, Tom (Diana); step-brother, Randy; sister, Lynn; step-sister, Pam (Pat); and nieces and nephews, Thomra, Emily, Carly, Susie, Greg and Tommy.

After a 33-year career in Electric Operations at PG&E, Dan retired to the foothills and spent much time hiking, fishing, kayaking and backpacking in the Sierra Mountains, where he found spiritual rejuvenation. He also spent many hours in volunteer service to such organizations as El Dorado National Forest Service, Pacific Crest Trail Association and El Dorado County Senior Center. He always did what he considered to be the right thing, even if it was the most difficult thing. He had a heart of gold and was always willing to help anyone at any time. He was a man of honor and a true gentleman. To those who loved him, Dan was an anchor in a stormy sea and he will be deeply missed.

Memorial contributions may be made to Sierra Wildlife Rescue. Arrangements entrusted to Chapel of the Pines Funeral Home in Placerville.

    MY loving thoughts and prayers go out to you. I lost my husband of 31 years to pancreatic cancer also. He too loved the PCT and we hiked many miles of it in Washington together. May your memories be loving healthy ones.
