Malcom R. Dale


With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Malcom Russell Dale. Mac was born 1924 in London, Ontario before locating to West Vancouver, BC, then finally Kelowna, BC. He leaves behind many loved ones including his wife of 61 years, Shirley, daughter Kimberly Checkley (Bill),

2 grandchildren: Michael Checkley (Angela) and Erika Checkley (Kyle), and 3 great grandchildren (Lukah, Rylen and Cora) whom he adored very much. He was a man of few words but we remember so many of them. He was

precise with his creations that he loved to build in his

workshop, adventurous on a pair of skis, and fun loving

with family and friends. He spent much of his work life in

the auto industry and could tell you the make, model, and year of just about any car on the road. In the 1950’s he raced outboard motorboats and was an expert when it

came to things with engines. On the softer side, he made excellent butter tarts. The memorial service to celebrate

his life is open to all that would like to pay their respects: Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 at 2:00 PM at First Memorial Funeral Services, 1211 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Cancer Foundation:
