Daniel C. Provencher (1953 – 2020)
NEWPORT NEWS, VA—Daniel C. Provencher, 67, of Newport News, VA, passed away unexpectedly July 18, 2020 at home. Born in Vermont, February 9, 1953, he was the son of David L. Provencher of Ghent and the late Elizabeth Provencher Scott.
He attended Roeliff Jansen High School.
“Dan” worked at Popp’s Towing and Recovery in Newport News, VA, for the past eight years and is remembered there as a dedicated hard worker capable of any job. Many remember him as a quiet, gentle man who created works of art with stone, repairing stone walls, building beautiful fieldstone fireplaces and patios throughout Columbia and Berkshire counties and in later years in Virginia. One of his hobbies in Virginia Beach was repurposing old bicycles into fun and fancy beach bikes.
He is survived by: his father, David Provencher and stepmother, Edith of Ghent; his sisters, Trudette “Trudy” Crimi of West Taghkanic, and Kimberley Steele of Shenandoah, VA. He is also survived by several nieces, nephews, cousins, step-family, in-laws and many dear friends. He was predeceased by his brother, Gregory and step-sister, Kathryn “Kathy” (Scott) Wilson.
A man of the earth, he wasn’t a man of extravagant living but had many unique treasures.
“While his family and friends are struggling to come to terms with this loss we also face the challenge of honoring him. The Covid pandemic has prevented us from coming together in support the way we have in times like this before.”
