FORSYTHE, Dale Charles
January 28, 1948 – September 10, 2020
Born on January 28, 1948 in Ashcroft, BC, Dr. Dale Forsythe passed away on September 10, 2020. Predeceased by his parents Marie (d. 2005) and Malcolm “Mac” (d. 2011), Dale is survived by his loving wife Melody; three children Craig (Dayna), Alison (Bryan), and Michael (Teresa); and two stepchildren Justin (Kelsey) and Jenelle (David); along with grandchildren Rowan, Aubrey, Ellis, Vincent, Hank, and Joseph.
Dad/Papa lived a very full life and was very grateful for all the friendships he made along the way. He also loved being able to give back to areas of life that he received enjoyment from. After earning his Doctorate in Chiropractic in 1971 from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, ON, Dale returned to his home town of Rutland, BC to enjoy a 47-year private practice. “Giving back” was a huge part of Dale’s life. His passion for the outdoors led him to organize the Kelowna Chapter of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Canada (RMEFC).
The family would like to express a heartfelt thank-you to Dr. T. Sebulsky and staff, and all the wonderful and caring staff at Central Okanagan Hospice House.
There will be a private spreading of his remains next summer at his “favourite elk hunting camp”.
