Dalzell, Stanley James (Stan)
Stan was born in Hanna, Alberta. He and Mary raised their family in Nanaimo since 1967. He passed away peacefully on Dec 21, after inspiring us with a stoic and courageous response to his health issues.
Stan was predeceased by his infant son Colin Patrick Dalzell, and his sister Dixie Dalzell. He leaves his loving wife Mary, his daughters Anne (Jim Pearce), and Theresa (Kevin McCabe) and grandchildren, Mark, Kyra and Jenna Pearce who brought him so much joy and pride, as well as his sisters Linda and Patricia and numerous nieces and nephews.
Stan’s love, endless patience and generosity will be greatly missed by the many lives he touched. He contributed for decades to his community as a teacher, dance enthusiast and volunteer in too many areas to list. He was past Master and member of the Doric Lodge #18 A.F. and A.M.
Special thanks to the countless health care professionals who helped Stan over the past 35 years, especially Dr. Rachel Carsen and the staff at NRGH palliative care and the cardiology staff at the Royal Jubilee.
Thank-you to his many friends for their support. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Stan’s honour to a Charity of your choice. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 3, 2015 at 11 a.m. in Telford’s Burial & Cremation Centre 595 Townsite Road, Nanaimo, Rev B. Evens Officiating.
