Herbert "Dale" Longmuir
have a memory or condolence to add?ADD A MEMORY
6 August 2018
In 1967 I resided in Pitt Meadows for a period of time staying with my uncle across the street from the Longmuir family. I had the pleasure of meeting the family and made some wonderful memories with son Bryan and his friends. Dale offered me employment at the Hollyburn Country Club and it was most appreciated My recollections of Dale was that he was a soft-spoken and easy going individual and there were a few times when I messed up I am sure he could have raised his voice to me but he never did. I respected him for that. I have memories of him behind the wheel of his Karmann Ghia. My condolences to the family. Dale lived a good many years but it is always difficult to lose a parent no matter what age. Rest easy Dale, it was nice knowing you.

Like everyone, we have nothing but very fond memories of Dale. Our Horne family regularly made summer trips to Pitt Meadows for summer vacation and we always received a warm reception from both Dale and Hazel. They always went out of their way to ensure there was something fun to do. In those days Dale used to arrange swimming in the Pitt River and in later years we attended horse races to watch the horse he owned; race (which not everyone knew he owned, at least that’s what he told me)??? Dale’s subtle humor was delightful and he always seemed to have something interesting to talk about. Dale was a one of kind and truly a quality person who left a positive impression with everyone he came in contact with.

I remember that Dale was a great manager of the Golden Ears Winter Club. Dale was the main reason I was hired as Icemaker in 1985. The highlight of that first season was when Dale told me that the Chilliwack Curling Club was short a team for their cash bonspiel . Dale said ,you are coming with me along with Cal Fister and Dennis Palmer. We had a great time and for a throw together team we did O.K. We WON the cash spiel! Dale will be sorely missed, may he rest in peace.
