DALTON GEORGE (BUD) DOW

DOW, DALTON GEORGE (BUD)

Born May 14, 1931 in Quincy, Massachusetts and passed away on October 2, 2014 at the Kelowna General Hospital.  He will be missed and fondly remembered for his kind, gregarious and outgoing spirit by his circle of friends, neighbours and extended family.

Dalton was predeceased by his first wife, Margaret Elizabeth Dow (Sawyer) in 2002 and Rena Dow (Titmus) in 2011; also predeceased by his parents Russell and Vera Dow.

Dalton graduated from Chipman, NB High School in 1948, completing his education at the University of New Brunswick, graduating with a Professional Engineer degree.  He had a working career spanning the world in doing Engineering work assignments, consulting on various rail and transportation projects; which included a 20 year employment with Canadian Pacific in an engineering capacity.

Dalton’s travels took him to China, Indonesia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Southeast Asia locations, Argentina as well as a career spent working both in Canada and the United. States.  Prior to moving to Kelowna in 2002, Dalton and Margaret lived in Collegeville, PA.  Unfortunately Margaret passed away and the retirement plans for Kelowna ended with Dalton living on his own in Kelowna.

His accomplishments are far too many to list and much of his memorabilia will be available to view at an informal Memorial Gathering for Dalton to be held on Friday, October 24th at 1:30 pm at Springfield Funeral Home Family Centre, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.  In honour of Dalton’s love of animals, especially his cats, feel free to make a donation in his memory to the Kelowna SPCA, 3785 Casorso Road, Kelowna, BC, V1W 4M7.
