Dallas Woodburn

September 21, 1925 – October 31, 2014

It is with profound sadness that the family announces Dallas’ passing on October 31, 2014 in the loving presence of his wife and daughter. He was blessed with 89 years of life.

Dallas lived by a code of honour; integrity, honesty, and humility guided all his actions. He was known for his kindness, generosity and loyalty.

Dallas loved the outdoors. His favourite pastime, which brought him so much joy, was being in his little boat on the gentle waves of Kootenay Lake with his fly rod in hand.

Most important and cherished was his family. He is survived by Audrey, his best friend and beloved wife of 61 years; his much loved children: son Chris, daughter-in-law Linda, and daughter Glynn; as well as treasured granddaughters Jane Bronwyn and Meaghan Dallas.

Sincere thanks to Dr. R. Ankenbauer, staff of Castlegar Medical Associates, and the staff of the Castleview Care Centre for all the wonderful care and kindness they showed Dallas and his family.

At Dallas’ request, cremation has taken place. An Anglican service with the family will be arranged for springtime. Jordan Wren of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with the arrangements. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at www.myalternatives.ca

In lieu of flowers, Dallas wished donations be made to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice (1690 Matthews Avenue, Vancouver, BC V6J 2T2).
