JACOBSON; Dwayne Trueman
May 28, 1946 – February 16, 2016
Dwayne, born May 28, 1946 in Edmonton Alberta, went to Heaven February 16, 2016 with his wife of 44 1/2 years, Sharon holding his hand. Dwayne went all too early after a very courageous battle with Mesothelioma cancer for 7 months. Dwayne is survived by his faithful wife Sharon, 4 daughters Tammie (Cliff), Kim (Paul), Shannon (David) and Lise (Paul), their 13 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren and 1 more on the way! To say Dwayne has left a giant hole in this community is an understatement. Forever the entrepreneur, Dwayne had one of the largest Design firms in Vancouver in the 80’s/90’s, #10 in all of Canada for volume of work/contracts. He owned several other business that correlated to his design firm. He owned Haven Management Real Estate Property Management with his wife Sharon for almost 20 years, and they have owned and operated the Roadhouse Grille here in South Surrey (1781 King George Blvd) since 2002. Dwayne was hands-on and could frequently be seen jumping on the garbage in the bins, cleaning the parking lot and fixing things that just needed a little shimmy here and there!!
His hugs are legendary and his compassion had no boundaries. Dwayne was involved with several Ministries over the years and took several Mission trips giving and loving on thousands. His impact and legacy are far reaching. His legacy will live on through his large family and through the many works he has started and inspired. He was a huge supporter of our local youth and this years Youth Talent Search competition (at the Roadhouse Grille this Spring) will be dedicated to Dwayne’s memory. Memorial Service will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday February 20th at Life Church, 2265 152nd Street, White Rock. In lieu of flowers please donate to Avalon Women’s Centre in White Rock, one of Dwayne’s favourite local charities.
