Master Warrant Officer Daniel Tracey, CD

13 Oct 22

It is with deep sadness that we inform you of Master Warrant Officer Daniel Tracey’s passing on 13 October 2022 at the age of 46.

Dan joined the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals (RCCS) in 2002 as a Signals Operator. After serving with the 2nd Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group (2 CMBG), as a member of 2 CMBG Headquarters and Signal Squadron and subsequently of 1st battalion Royal Canadian Regiment, Dan joined the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM).

From 2007 until his death, Dan remained committed to the CAF and CANSOFCOM. He was known by his friends and colleagues to be an expert in his domain, exhibiting a strong spirit yet easily approachable. For those reasons, many within the larger RCCS & CANSOFCOM communities considered him a leader, a mentor, a companion in arms, and a dear friend.

Dan, you shall be missed. We will forever hold your memory alive, and your flame high.

We remember.

Family and those closest to Dan are welcome to gather for a service to celebrate his heroic life at Blair & Son Funeral Home, Smiths Falls on Saturday, October 22, 2022 at 11 a.m. Due to space limitations at the funeral home, those still wishing to pay their respects to Dan can also attend the interment ceremony which will take place at United Cemeteries in Carleton Place from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Soldier On.
