It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Dad Richard (Dick) McElroy. He passed on Nov. 5, 2013 with family by his side.
Dad was predeceased by his daughter Kathy and granddaughter Sarah.
Survived by his loving wife of 65 years Grace and seven children; Nancy, Steve (Michelle), Ruth, Joe (Helen), Kris, Mary (Dale), Kelly, 13 grandchildren, 17 great grand children and also his life-long friend Mel McDonald.
Dad wore many hats during his lifetime. He sailed the B.C. coast as a marine engineer for many years and later drove transport trucks before moving to Quesnel in 1981.
He enjoyed the farm life, his John Deere tractor and his family.
The family would like to thank special friend Sylvia. Dad was her Mr. Fix-it for many years and she would always send along a pie or two which he always looked forward to devouring.
And also to GR Baker hospital, Palliative Care staff for their care and compassion during dad’s stay.
