May 27, 1948 – Feb. 27, 2008
Dick passed gracefully at home with his love Normie at his side. He now is charged with the care of his grandson Thomas, who left us in November, 2007. He loved British Columbia, from his earlier years in the Cariboo to later in life on Vancouver Island. First grandson Charlie will keep Dick’s unfailing wit and humor alive for us to enjoy for years to come. He is survived by mother Fran, brothers Don, Dennis and Dan, daughter Billie (Steve) and grandson Charlie. A service will be held on Saturday, March 8, 2008 at St. Anne’s Church, 407 Wembley Road, Parksville, BC at 1:00 pm. Donations to the British Columbia Childhood Cancer Parent’s Association (bcccpa.org) in Dick’s name gratefully accepted.
