October 22, 1936 - March 30, 2012


October 22, 1936 – March 30, 2012

After a brief battle with cancer that he fought hard until the end. Dad left us with Sheryl and Brett by his side, to be with his beloved Ruth. He leaves to mourn his loss, daughter Sheryl, son in-law Brett Chester, granddaughters, his (special girls) Jennifer & Heather Chester. Also his son Daniel & grandson Ryan. Brother Ken & wife Lil of Trail, sister in-law, Joan Jochim & husband Kas of Quesnel and many extended family & friends, his dog Tess & cat Boots.
Dad joined the Duncan Fire Department in March 1967, made Lt. in March 1972and Captain in 1974. He served on many committees and was active in all aspects of Firefighting. During this time he and mom made many life long friends. Together they enjoyed many social events with the “Fire Hall Gang”. He retired in May 1979.
Dad loved to hunt and fish and made many trips up North with his hunting buddies. But most of all he loved and cherished his family. One of his greatest joys was the births of his grandchildren.
The Family would like to thank, Dr. Glenn Robinson and the Nurses of the 2nd Floor, for the kindness and compassion they showed dad. Also the Hospice volunteers for sitting with dad.
Those wishing to can make a donation in Dad’s name to Cowichan Valley Hospice, 3122 Gibbins Rd, Duncan, B.C. V9L 1G2. A tea will be held as a later date in May. Online condolences may be made at hwwallacecbc.com
