THOMAS DYRDAL ELMER

1925-2008. We will remember Elmer left us Dec 10th, but his spirit is still with us. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Shirlie, son Del Dyrdal (Diane), daughters Shirleen Gerlach (Bruce) and Treacy Dyrdal (K.C. Ellison), grandsons Jeremy and Chad Gerlach, granddaughters Shayne & Delaine Dyrdal. Elmer arrived in Kelowna 44 years ago from Saskatoon, Sask., and got his start with Haugs Building Supply, followed by many years of managing Kelowna Brick and Block. Elmer was an avid crib player (who was always willing to take your money) and an enthusiastic hockey and baseball fan. His quick wit and sense of humor was enjoyed by all. He was always willing to lend a hand when needed. Elmer was a WWII veteran and a long time Legion member. Special thanks to Dr. Larry Bobyn & the superior staff at Cottonwooods who took exceptional care of Elmer during the past year.
