It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Dwayne Roy Alaric on October 11, 2015. Dwayne was born in Nakusp B.C. on January 6, 1968.
Dwayne worked various jobs – from the shake mill, to cutting shake blocks, “where he was know as a machine”. He also worked other jobs in logging, cooking, carpentry, roofing. He was an Inn Keeper, and finally the job that suited him best: “CAMPSITE HOST” at Box Lake.
Dwayne’s childhood nickname was Mr. D, and when his first niece was born, he was proud to be called UNCLE “D.” Dwayne dearly loved all his nieces and nephews.
Dwayne had a great sense of humor and loved to tell a joke or play a prank. Music was a huge part of “D” and he had learned to play his “geetar” quite well. Gaining himself another nick name “Dwayne Yoakam”.
Dwayne never forgot the times when he had nothing, and always strived to fill a void in someone else’s life. He had a big heart and a quiet strength. He would take a homeless man a bagged lunch and give him a sweater to keep him warm. During the holidays he cooked many turkey dinners for those less fortunate.
Dwayne is predeceased by his mother Gail, and his youngest sister, Debbie, both in 2010.
He is survived by his father Roy (Audrey), brother Shane (JoAnne), three sisters, Annette ( Aaron), Leona (Mike), and Jody, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, one great-niece and four great-nephews.
Dwayne is also survived by a host of close friends, including Trisha, and his three beloved dogs, Roscoe, Daisy and Cooter.
May we always keep your memory, the sound of your laugh and the strength of your
hugs in our hearts.
