Apr. 5th, 1940 – Apr. 28th, 2015

It is with heavy hearts we announce that Dale passed away suddenly but peacefully, surrounded by his loving family and the caring staff at The Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury in Ponoka at the age of 75.

Dale was born at Lampman, Saskatchewan, the youngest child of Adam and Christina Henry. He went to Crystal, Browning and Lampman Schools before heading to the University of Saskatchewan where he earned an Honours degree in physics. Then he headed to Montreal where he achieved his Masters degree in Meteorology from McGill University. He was employed as a Meteorologist at Environment Canada for 31 years, retired at age 53 and spent winters in Arizona and travelling around the world.

Dale was predeceased by his parents Adam and Christina Henry; his wife Peggy and his brothers Gordon and Ronald.

He is survived by his devoted wife Blanche; his children: Deborah Shul (Clarence), Randy Henry (Terina) and Sue Henry (Gordon); his stepchildren: Diane Anderson, Wayne Derwantz (Lynn), Larry Derwantz (Susan) and Scott Derwantz (Debbie); his grandchildren: Kellen, Brenna, Sarah, Adam, Christian, Kyla, Aron, Scott, Rick, Stephanie, Lisa, Erica, Hilary, Ashley, Rebecca and Victoria and his great-grandchildren: Logan, Jaslynn, Keaton and Kendall and his sister Marjorie Jacober as well as extended family and many friends.

Dale was a man of many talents: he loved dancing and music, enjoyed baseball, curling and golf and was an excellent handyman – carpenter, plumber, electrician, dry-waller and step-builder! He made sure his projects were completed to perfection.

If friends so desire, contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society or the Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury or a charity of the donor’s choice. Condolences may be sent to the family at
