Lance Wingrave

August 16, 1926 - October 28, 2010


Born August 16, 1926 in Vancouver, BC Lance Wingrave passed away October 28, 2010 at Powell River General Hospital. Age 84 years. He is survived by his loving wife, Lucill and sons, Kosto and Curt. Lance and his wife, sailed into Powell River in 1986 aboard their sloop ”Sunburst” and it was decided this was the most beautiful place to live, close to all the best of nature, music, a chance to explore the local waters and Desolation Sound. After purchasing a wooded lot they lived aboard in the North Harbor for two years while building their retirement home – which grew and grew into a three story castle which for several years was Winhaven B&B. Lance greatly enjoyed meeting with folks from many lands and sharing and comparing their adventures. Over the years here, in Vancouver and Calgary, where they also lived for many years , Lance worked as a sheet metal mechanic installing furnaces – air conditioning and heat pumps – and keeping up with the latest developments to be able to give folks the best advice possible. His cheerful eagerness to help and his expertise was sought out and appreciated for many years after he retired. His early working years were in the field of diamond drilling such as the Capilano Dam and Britannia Mines- as well as in the far north, the land of the midnight sun. In the last few years here in Powell River he enjoyed meeting with his friends at the Coast Hotel and listening to all happenings in the Powell River area. Lance was a hard worker, a great husband and a good provider. He and his family greatly appreciate the special care given to him during his last few years and especially the last few months, by Dr. Lynskey and the friendly staff at Powell River General Hospital. No service by request. Flowers gratefully declined. Arrangements entrusted to Stubberfield Funeral Home Ltd, Condolences may be directed to the family by visiting
