Richard Ravenscroft Dobell


Richard Ravenscroft

Richard Ravenscroft “Dick” Dobell passed away peacefully on April 26, 2012 in South Surrey, B.C. He was born in 1922 in Cheshire, England to parents Alfred Temple and Gladys Dobell. Dick is survived by sons James (Brenda), Peter (Tracy) and grandchildren Michael (Laura), Alison (Bryan), Laura, Charlsy, Tegan and great grandson, Avery. He was predeceased by his first wife Pamela (mother of James and Peter), second wife Vivienne and granddaughter Claire.

Dick immigrated to Canada with Pam and his young family in 1950 and began a long and successful career in the lumber business. Dick was also an avid boater and a member of the West Van Yacht Club for over twenty years. Retiring to Salt Spring Island he spent many happy years involved with the tennis club, beach combing and cultivating his vegetables. He was a true gentleman and we will miss him dearly.

A memorial will be held on Salt Spring Island at a later date. Contact for details.
