Dahle Henslowe

November 3, 1938 - July 21, 2015


On July 21, 2015, at home with family and friends at his side, Dahle Hanlyn Henslowe, peacefully departed this world for greener pastures.

Born on November 3rd, 1938 in Duncan, BC, Dahle is survived by his mother, Hazel, his three sons, Arnie, Russell, and Gary, his granddaughter, Claire, his partner Gail, his siblings, Loralie and Greg, and nephews Don, Steve, Ed, and Jim. He was predeceased by his father Ronald (Hank.)

Once thought by some ladies to be the best looking man in Duncan, Dahle was, from an early age, very hard working and industrious. Although he split most of his working life between logging and driving truck for C&C Lath Mill, he also, among other things, delivered sawdust, raised animals, and always had numerous projects in progress on his farm – a few of which he even completed!

Dahle was a long time member of both the Elk’s and Eagle’s Clubs. He enjoyed life and the many people who sat at ease around his kitchen table. He loved Cadillac’s, Lincolns, tractors, Johnny Red and making the best headcheese in the Cowichan Valley. (He’ll still be looking for his lost recipe!)

A special thanks to Bev for her exceptional care during dad’s final days, and to Silvie for taking such good care of the animals.   

For the many who will miss Dahle’s constructive criticism, dry humour, and easy presence, they can take solace in the fact that he truly did do it HIS WAY! 

In lieu of flowers be kind to a stranger.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, Aug 1st, from 1pm to 4pm at the Eagle’s Hall on Boy’s Rd.
