He attended Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario and graduated in 1972 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Throughout his adult life he continued to upgrade his skills through college programs in social sciences, audio and computer technology.
Daniel worked in Thunder Bay, ON as a Customs Canada Officer at the Pigeon River border crossing, in the correctional systems in Kingston, ON, North Battleford, SK and Abbotsford, BC and for social services in Thunder Bay, Abbotsford and Salmon Arm, BC. He also worked as a computer technician in Abbotsford and Salmon Arm and operated a motorcycle business for a brief period in North Battleford, SK. Daniel last worked at Okanagan Audio in Vernon, BC as an audio technician.
His father, Lars Knudson, a Lutheran pastor, died in 1982 and his mother, Dorothy Knudson, died in 1986.
Daniel leaves behind his loving partner, Christa Kent (Enderby,BC) their extended family: James, Jessica and Arlo Kent (Armstrong, BC) Nicole Kent and Aaron Dayman (Victoria, BC); Daniel’s brother and sister-in-law, David and Joan Knudson (Thunder Bay); Daniel’s sister and brother-in-law, Marion and Dennis Eberle (Calgary) and several nieces and nephews and their families: Angela, Christopher, Miranda,

Daniel always had a love of music and a passion for electronics and motorcycles. He was a member of the Aura Chamber Choir in Vernon, BC for many years. He had a great sense humour, enjoyed nature and outdoor actives and loved to cook. We will miss him so much!
