An Update Regarding COVID-19 

We would like to reassure our families that Bergeron’s will continue to remain open to serve our communities during this time of uncertainty. We are striving to keep our community, our families, and our staff safe. 

The government has taken measures to limit public gatherings to very small groups, and we are trying to ensure that the number of people entering the funeral home remains within those guidelines. We ask our families to please call before coming in, so we can provide you with information and options in regards to the funeral arrangement and safety for all.

Thank you,

From all of us at Bergeron Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd.

Dale Donald Brown was born March 10, 1939 in Dawson Creek BC, where he resided until his passing in Rotary Manor on June 18, 2019.

Dale was the fifth child of Zella and Wayne Brown and was followed by his youngest brother Ted. The large family loved camping and fishing. When Dale was 12 years old, they built a cabin at Hasler Flats along with several other families, where many wonderful years were spent enjoying nature. In future years, the cabins were all acquired by the family. Many large gatherings were held here including several Brown and Norman family reunions. These cabins were enjoyed by family until recent years.

In the fall of 1957, Dale met Shirley Norman at Fairview, Alberta. They were married on July 19, 1958 at Coal River, BC. That fall they settled in Dawson Creek where they raised their four children. In 1960, Dale started his apprenticeship at Zwick’s Plumbing and Heating for his trade in Gas Fitting and heating. In 1975, he formed his own company D.B. Plumbing and Heating and was self-employed until his retirement in 2007.
Dale enjoyed many sports including fastball, bowling, curling, golf, fishing, and hunting. He was a member of Elks Lodge #289 for over 35 years and a member of Royal Canadian Legion #141 for many years.

Dale leaves to mourn his wife of 61 years Shirley, his children Gordon Brown, Mavis (Jamie) McLean, Norman (Danae) Brown; six grandchildren Samantha Brown, Kael (Brandis) Short, Shawna Brown, Emily Short, Dustin Brown and Spencer McLean, as well as two great grandsons Emmett (Brown) Paradis and Weston Short; and sisters-in-law Nina Brown and Tanya Brown, as well as many nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his daughter Cindy Miller, son-in-law Terry Miller, his parents, Shirley’s parents, and all of his siblings: Genevieve, Beverley, Bill, Joan and Ted.

The family will be hosting a Celebration of Dale’s life on July 27, 2019 from 1:00-4:00pm at the Senior's Hall, Dawson Creek. Interment will be on Friday, July 26, 2019 at 3:00pm at Dawson Creek City Cemetery.

The Family would like to thank Rotary Manor for their care of Dale over the past 2 1/2 years.

Expressions of sympathy may be made by donation to the Rotary Manor Activity Fund, 1121-90 Avenue, Dawson Creek, BC V1G 5A3.

My loving thoughts going out to all the family of Dale and Shirley in the loss of Dale - He was a force to be reckoned with for sure and gave everyone lots of laughs along with his sarcasm! He will be missed but we cannot wish him back as he has not had a good life for the past few years and finally will be at peace!
