Bruce John Dale

September 14, 1941 - April 27, 2016


It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Bruce, a sweet, gentle husband, father and grandfather. He leaves behind to grieve his loving wife of 51 years Sharon, daughter Loretta (Rod) Jamieson, son Greg Dale, grandchildren Spencer, Natalie, Jaryd and Madison and sister Betty (Vern) Wilson of Kamloops. Bruce was predeceased by his parents John and Ann Dale, brothers Tom, Norman and Donald and sister Agnes Martinsen.

Bruce was born in Enderby, BC. At the age of 19, he moved to Victoria to work for CHEK-TV, where he met Sharon, who worked for CKDA Radio; they were married in 1964.

In 1965, Bruce and Sharon moved to Birch Island on the North Thompson River, to work for BC Forest Service, in the protection branch. In 1972, they moved to Powell River to work for the Tipton family, owners of Airport Lumber. Before getting in with the municipality, Bruce managed the Westview Garden Apartments, did some carpentry work and drove cement and fuel trucks. He worked many years for the City of Powell River as a bus driver, Super Curbster garbage truck and flusher truck driver.

Thank you to Dr. Charles Van Zyl, the hospital staff, and especially the staff of Willingdon Creek Village House One and Adult Day Program for taking care of Bruce.

This honest, steady and patient man will be sorely missed.

A memorial service will be held at Faith Lutheran Church on Saturday, May 7, at 11 am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
