October 29, 1959 – January 24, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Jay Dearman on Wednesday, January 24th, 2018, at the age of 58.
Jay was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He was passionate about many things, including running, boating, music, coffee, and hockey, but his true joy was being with friends and family. Jay was a talented cabinet maker who worked for many years in the industry. He eventually opened his own successful business on Gabriola Island, building beautiful and unique custom woodwork.
Jay finally fulfilled his dream of becoming a volunteer firefighter and first responder with the Gabriola Fire Department. He was a dedicated member who won the award for responding to the most calls in 2017.
He will be sadly missed by his wife of 38 years, Suzanne and his children Carla (Cam) and Sarah (Eric). Jay will also be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren Koa and Kade.
Donations can be made to the Gabriola volunteer firefighters association.
Celebration of Life, 2 pm -5 pm on Sunday April 14, 2019 at Meadow Gardens Golf Course, Pitt Meadows, BC
