It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Heath Dalziel of Pincher Creek, AB on January 23, 2020 at the Pincher Creek Health Centre. He was blessed with 92 meaningful years of life.
Heath was born in Prestwick, Scotland on August 18, 1927. He grew into a patriotic and dutiful young man who proudly served in the Royal Air Force. On June 4, 1949, Heath married the love of his life, Jean Robbins. The happy couple went on to be blessed with three lovely children and they moved their family to Canada, settling in the Crowsnest Pass, AB, in 1974.
Heath was an athletic person who liked staying active. He loved running in road races and going ballroom dancing with Jean, and also enjoyed soccer. As an avid member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 7, Blairmore, Heath was able to serve his community and build lasting friendships with fellow veterans and their families. He was an earnest, loyal and compassionate individual who will be deeply missed, but he will live on in the hearts of all who knew him.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life are his children, Barry (Carole) Dalziel of Surrey, BC, Stuart (Louise) Dalziel of Hillcrest, AB and Myra (Jamie) Dalziel of Nova Scotia; his grandchildren, Sarah Dalziel, Emily (Aaron) Wheeler, and Paul and Tracy Walters; his great grandchildren, Simon, Cruze, Elle, Rylee and Jayce; his sisters-in-law, Betty Dalziel of Scotland and Sheila Foulds of England; his brother-in-law, David (Valerie) Foulds of England as well as his extended family and friends.
He was predeceased by his wife, Jean Dalziel; his parents, Heath and Agnes Dalziel; his brother Ian Dalziel of Scotland; and his sister, Moira (Jimmy) Sherrington of Scotland.
A private family gathering will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by Good Samaritan Vista Village (PO Box 1510, Pincher Creek, AB T0K 1W0). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
