MICHAEL GORDON DAKIN

DAKIN, MICHAEL GORDON February 11, 1940 – August 28, 2015 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Michael Gordon Dakin. He passed away August 28, 2015 after a short courageous battle with cancer. Predeceased by his mother Jessie Hughes earlier this year Michael leaves behind his loving partner Gerda, son Bradley, brothers Ted (Diann) Dakin of Tsawwassen, Pat (Trish) Dakin of Vernon, grandson Sammy, nephews Brett and Cameron (Michele) Dakin and niece Cara (Tobias). Although Michael enjoyed the outdoors and was an avid hiker he was happiest when he had a carpentry project on the go. He loved reading and playing a competitive game of scrabble.  Michael spent a large part of his life in Houston, BC where he operated his own helicopter base and later built and managed a golf course before retiring in the Okanagan. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the doctors and nurses of the 6th Floor (West) of the Royal Bldg at KGH for their excellent care as well as the staff at the Hospice House. A Celebration of Life will be held on September 27th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the clubhouse at 3999 Sonoma Pines Dr, at the corner of Terrero Place in West Kelowna.
