Obituary of Bedford (Dale) Aylward
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Bedford Zane (Dale) Aylward, a long-time resident of Dawson Creek, British Columbia. On the morning of Thursday, August 25, 2022, he took his last breath and left us, heading out on a new journey, at the age of 92 years.
Dad was born July 23, 1930, in Five Islands, Nova Scotia. We all remember Dad as this tall, dark haired, handsome, wickedly funny, and vibrant man. He cast a long shadow for us to follow.
Dad practiced medicine starting in 1960 in Dawson Creek and was still visiting patients when he retired at the age of 80. He was a compassionate, inquisitive man. He was always eager to learn more and engage in conversation. This, as well as his love of books, contributed to his wealth of knowledge. An avid sportsman, he especially enjoyed hunting and fishing with friends (Red, Oscar, Uncle Earl, and Jim). He served on many boards including the Dawson Creek and District Hospital, the British Columbia and Canadian Angus Associations. He was a member of the Kinsmen Club of DC and served one term as an Alderman in Dawson Creek.
We moved to the farm in 1969 and Dad’s life took a different turn. He became known as a cattleman who was dedicated to the promotion and development of the Black Angus Cattle Breed in British Columbia and Canada. He was proud of the growth of Gumbo Gulch Cattle Co. and enjoyed walking or riding his quad to check on his herd. Dad exemplified a life well lived. He will be missed by all and forgotten by none. That was the kind of person that Dad was.
He leaves to mourn the love of his life and wife of 66 years, Bernice; children Brian (Sue), Steven (Chris), Darroch (Sindy), and Lisa (Richard); grandchildren Stephanie, Bryce, Victor, Nicole, Andrew, Jon, Breanne, Luc, Jenise, and Elyse; 7 great grandchildren, with one more on the way; sister June and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
For friends so wishing, donations may be made in memory of Bedford (Dale) to Rotary Manor, 1121-90 Avenue, Dawson Creek, BC, V1G 5A3, Dawson Creek and District Hospital, 11100-13 St, Dawson Creek, BC, V1G 3W8, or the charity of your choice.
