The family of Danny Chisholm regrets to announce his passing at the Ruddy Shenkman Hospice in Kanata, Ontario on October 26, 2018 at the age of 85. Born in New York City he was the only child of the late Dr. Dan and Sarah (Sally) Chisholm. Danny spent much of his childhood in New York and New Hampshire. After graduation from high school he and his parents moved to Port Hawkesbury, N.S. where his father conducted a busy general practice for many years. Danny attended St. F.X. University followed by two years in the U.S military service. He graduated from the N.S. Teachers College and taught for a short time in rural Nova Scotia. Subsequently, and following the death of his father, Danny and his mother moved to Ottawa where he was employed by the Federal Government until his retirement. Following the death of his mother, Danny and our beloved Aunt Mae lived in Ottawa for many years. After his retirement, he moved to the Redwoods Retirement Residence in Ottawa where he remained for the next 14 years. Danny was an active curler for several years and regularly attended professional sports events. He also travelled in the summer to visit relatives in the Maritimes and former school friends in New England. He will be remembered as a quiet and gentle person who gave generously to a variety of charities. He was a devout Catholic and a member of a variety of parishes related to his residence. The family wishes to express their gratitude to those who helped Danny in many ways over a long time.  In particular we thank Dr. Catherine Braidek and her staff at the Ottawa Hospital and Dr. Dave Davidson, his long time family physician. Latterly Danny received outstanding care from Dr. Paul Hacker and the staff at the Ruddy Shenkman Hospice in Kanata, Ont. He also received valued support from the Directorate and staff at Redwoods.
