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.
