We Remember

DAVISON, Dayle Glenn Edward

February 22, 1935 — October 7, 2020

It is with sad hearts that the family of Dayle Glenn Edward Davison announce his passing on October 7, 2020 at the age of 85 with his family by his side. He leaves to mourn his loving wife Carol; his daughter Collette Davison MacNeil; his sons Corey Davison (Tabatha) and Patrick Davison Kalk (Carmen); his four grandchildren Emily, Aubrey, Carleen, and Kelsey. He will also be dearly remembered by his sisters Shirley Pattyson, Glenda Davison Church, and Kelly Williamson; his brothers Don Davison, Gary Davison,Wayne Bitz, and brother-in-law George Gieni along with many loving nieces. Sadly, he was predeceased by his sister Sharon Gieni and parents Ila and Glen Davison.

In 1961, Dayle joined AA and accomplished 59 years of sobriety. On October 16, 1965, he married Carol, the love of his life; they were just a few days away from celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary. In 1978, he and Carol moved their family across the country from Thunder Bay to Kelowna where they built many more happy memories.

Dayle was a man who loved his family, his work, his food, and his sports. He was well respected in the car business for over 50 years both in Thunder Bay, ON and Kelowna, BC. A dedicated member of the Mission Rotary Club, Dayle received the Paul Harris award.

Dayle’s sense of humour, unselfishness, patience, and charming nature will be forever cherished.

A Celebration of Life will be held to honour Dayle. However, due to the current pandemic restrictions it will be by invitation only. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, www.heartandstroke.ca.

    To Carol, Collette, Corey, and Patrick, so saddened to hear of Dayle’s passing. He fought a courageous and very long battle, with so many challenges. A decades long family friend will be sadly missed. He and Carol have always been an amazing and loving support to our family, and he and my Dad were especially close. Though they both struggled in their final years, I am certain they are now pain and disability free, and whooping it up in heaven!

  • Diane and Mike MacQuoid says:

    We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Dayle, and feel very fortunate to have been able to spend some time with him over the summer. He was a very special, respected and treasured friend of my Dad’s. Our condolences and love to the family, as you work through this difficult time.

    Thoughts and prayers with you Carol and family. . We had a Thunder Bay background but did not know each other until both families moved to Kelowna in the 1970’s. We became close friends and fond memories of good times together. Dayle was such a good Man in so many ways!

  • Dawn Swail and Vern Mantey says:
