February 14, 1960 – September 15, 2023
In loving memory ~
Dale Robert Parkyn was born February 14th, 1960 in Burnaby, B.C., and passed away peacefully surrounded by family members Friday, September 15th, 2023, in Prince George, B.C. Dale was an avid cyclist for most of his life until his struggles with Parkinson’s Disease made it too difficult for him to continue his favourite activity. Growing up in Vernon, B.C., he enjoyed cycling, skiing and other outdoor activities and even was an accomplished ski racer in his teen years.
He lived in Vancouver for many years and attended Simon Fraser University. He was an intelligent and kind person with a curious view and interest in science and the world around him. He eventually moved to Prince George in 2003 and was able to enjoy cycling and some skiing in the area for a time before things became too difficult to do anymore.
Dale is predeceased by his mother Edith (Berg) Parkyn in 2008 and his father Douglas Parkyn in 1989.
He is survived by two siblings Lyle Parkyn and nephews Colin and Sean of Vancouver and Luanne (Parkyn) Stadnyk and niece Elizabeth of Prince George, B.C.
By request, there is no service and arrangements are with Fraserview Crematorium and Assman’s Funeral Chapel of Prince George, B.C.Obituary-
