DICK, Edward Charles September 17, 1925 – May 8, 2007. Born in Saskatchewan, moved to Vernon, B.C. at a young age. Grew with fishing and gardening in his veins and gentle soul. Married Constance Smalley of Vernon in 1945. Produced one daughter, Sherrie Constance (“We did it right the first time” Dad always said). Lived many years in White Rock and Greater Vancouver. Worked proudly for 35 years for Woodward’s Stores Ltd as a furniture and floor coverings salesman. Loved Connie through more than 58 years of marriage and to his final days. Survived by brothers Gil, Jack, Bob (Fay), Bill (Terry) and many nieces and nephews; pre-deceased by sister Marjorie. Will be missed by niece Joan McNab and cousins Myra Smalley Thornburg (Ohio) and Jean and John Daubney (Lincolnshire, England). Leaves with many good memories George and Sylvia Stanworth, Mark Gelfond, Harley Roath, Donnie Caverhill, Jean and Fred Baxter, John and Fran McDonald and all their families. To those who showed Dad kindness and support during the past few years—Gina, Teresa, Sue and Eddie, Peter and Jean, all our good neighbors, the White Hat Coffee Gang at Zellers—and during the past few (too few, too short) months the staff at Peace Arch District Hospital and Peace Portal Lodge, our heartfelt thanks. Cremation; no service. A memorial gathering will take place at our home in late summer. Donations made to any Diabetes association gratefully accepted.
“He was a lovely man.”
