Vernon "Deane" Dewynter

May 22, 1945 - May 9, 2013


Deane’s ship set off on its final voyage on “opening day,” May 9 at 3:10 pm.

Born in Lucky Lake, Saskatchewan on May 22, 1945, he moved with his family to Cranberry in 1949. Growing up there he formed many bonds and friendships that he still had to this day. In his late teens and early 20s Deane travelled around Europe for two years, returning to Powell River where he worked in many of the local bars and mill.

He met his wife in 1974 and they went on an adventure around BC that started in Toba Inlet and they finally settled on their acreage on Plummer Creek Road. Deane was able to pursue his great love of fishing and went into the prawn fishing industry, saying it was the best life ever. He especially loved the fact that his son and daughter could both spend time with him on the boat and in the off season he was able to spend lots of time with his children working the land, chasing the mushrooms and out in the salal patch.

Deane pursued many interests in his life touching many lives and forming life-long friendships with his sincere caring nature. He was a cherished husband, father and Opa to his wife Dymph, son Kyle (Corinne), daughter Rachel Ann (Kelly), grandchildren Luke and Matty, Tyler and Lily. Deane had very close ties with his cousins, sister-in-law Margaret (Larry) and their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Uncle Deane was the best and they all remained close.

He was a happy-go-lucky, fun-loving man who made people feel special as he strived to live life to the fullest. He especially loved the hunting trips to northern BC and just going out fishing for the morning or evening bite. We, his family, are very thankful to have had this gentle loving man in our lives and he will forever remain in our hearts.

The family would like to give special thanks to all the health care workers, first responders and ambulance crew who helped out when we needed them, you all showed such amazing compassion and care to Deane. Also, thank you to all the friends and family who came to visit or sent prayers and love to Deane during his final days here at home.

“To know him was to love him”
