October 3, 1949 – August 23, 2017
We lost one of the good guys on August 23, 2017. Dave Dediluke was one of a kind. Dave always put others first. Not only was he an amazing father to his kids but many thought of him as a father figure. Mr. D would always take the time to chat with friends no matter where he may have been. His witty sense of humour kept everyone around him smiling. He was a confidant to many and provided “for what it’s worth” (his own words) advice and support that helped many people get through some hard times. He would make you laugh, encourage you to move forward and improve upon yourself, and would be there to chat anytime you needed to. Dave will be dearly missed by his three kids Kristen, Graeme (Rebekah) and Kathleen aka Kate to him (Dave) and his grandkids Braelyn, Mason, Jenny & Kally. His step daughters Erin (Graeme) and Shawna (Graham) and their children Addison, Cohen, Logan & Wylie. And by his long-time partner Dianne Tait, who he loved dearly. He absolutely loved being a Grandpa and would pop in and take his grandkids to the park, colour with them and well do anything the kids wanted to do, because he was a sucker for them. They made him happy and he made them happy. He cared for all around him and would like everyone to keep on getting things done. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to either the Terrace Minor Hockey Association or to My Mountain Co-Op.
