Dale Raymond Provo
May 24, 1945 – July 23, 2020
Dale Provo was born in Wetaskiwin, Alberta on May 24, 1945 to Florence and Clifford Provo.
In April of 1955 the family moved to Veteran, Alberta, where Dale made deep friendships that would last for the rest of his life. In 1966 Dale relocated to Edmonton where he attended NAIT and trained to become an auto mechanic. He started his career at Turnbull Motors and then moved to Pacific Western Airlines in 1973. He spent the rest of his career there, working for PWA, Canadian Airlines and finally Air Canada until his retirement on December 31, 2003.
In 2012 he and his wife Phyllis relocated to the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island to spend the rest of their retirement years there enjoying the beauty that surrounded them, and indulging regularly in the amazing fresh seafood that our oceans offer up.
In June of 2015 Dale started receiving dialysis treatments at the Cumberland Dialysis Center under the direction of Jenn Cheek and her staff, and he continued to receive those treatments until his death on July 23, 2020 from illnesses related to kidney disease and diabetes.
Dale is predeceased by his mother and father, Florence and Clifford, and by his brother, Brian Provo. He is missed and remembered with deep affection by his wife Phyllis; his sisters Beverly Brackenbury of Wetaskiwin, Judith Walsh of Perth, Australia, and Karen Weigum of Victoria, BC; his dear cousins Linda and Brad Billings of Courtenay and Sandra and Heinz Woltmann of Nanaimo; and his nieces and nephews and many, many dear friends.
If desired contributions can be made in Dale’s memory to the Kidney Foundation of British Columbia, BC and Yukon Branch, which served him so extraordinarily well.
Grateful thanks to Dr. Jonathan Reggler, Dr. Naomi Glick, the awesome team at the Cumberland Dialysis Center, and the wonderful Home Care nurses who loved and cared for Dale so well in the last years of his life.

I miss you already Dale. Those chatty phone calls of the last few years, that ever-ready smile when one entered the room, the funny jokes you passed on by email. It was hard to see you suffer, my brother, and I am so glad you are now free of pain and walking on 2 feet with your Saviour in peace.
