A loyal, dedicated employee of Woodward's and later IGA, Dick retired in 1996 after serving for 43 years. Dick moved to Vancouver Island in 1972, after 19 years of work in West Vancouver. The quieter lifestyle, mountain air and ocean water appealed very strongly to Dick's interests, and he spent all of his free time outdoors: fishing on lakes or the inlet, or tending his garden and rose bushes.

Friends are invited to join the family for an informal gathering to celebrate Dick's life on Saturday August 31, from 2:00 to 4:00pm at the Starboard Grill, Alberni Harbour Quay, 5440 Argyle Street. In lieu of flowers, donations in Dick's name to any charity of choice are sincerely appreciated.
