Passed away after a brief yet courageous battle with cancer. Predeceased by his wife Winnifred in 1987, he is survived by his daughters Gwen (Chris) and Nanci (John), and grandchildren Jack and Rosie.
Born in Weldon, Saskatchewan, Del grew up working on his family's farm and commercially fishing on the coast of B.C. An early interest in aviation lead Del to a long and happy career as a Flight Engineer. He flew with many airlines around the world. He loved his job!
Since his retirement in 1995, Del was able to pursue his passion for international travel, as well as spend much quality time with his grandchildren in England.
A heartfelt thanks to the wonderful staff at the North Shore Hospice.
A celebration of Del`s life will be held Thursday August 16, 2012 at The Beach House, Dundarave in West Vancouver at 6 p.m.
