Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that we bid farewell to our husband, father and grandfather, Mr. Gordon ‘Dale’ Simpson of Red Deer, Alberta, who left us in the early morning of Thursday, April 4, 2019 at the age of 80 years. Dale graduated from the University of Alberta with a BSC in Pharmacy in 1962. After working in Calgary for a short time, he had the opportunity to purchase a business in Hanna; where he owned and operated Simpson’s Pharmacy for twenty-six years. He was also active in the community as a Kinsman, served on Town Council and the Board of the First United Church. After selling the business, he worked for Safeway, where he was Pharmacy Manager of the new Port O’Call Safeway in Red Deer. His great passions were flying and restoring old cars, specifically a 1926 Model T. He owned a 1946 Fairchild, and also built and flew many radio-controlled model airplanes. The family would like to thank the Staff of Unit 31 of the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre, and the Balmoral Unit at the New Hamlets, Red Deer for their great care and compassion. Dale will be lovingly remembered by his loving wife, Joan, his sons, Jay (Lisa) and Cameron (Jill), his daughter, Jodi (Kim) and grandchildren, Jeffery, Victoria, Laura, Cody, Erin, Logan, Breanne and Shallen. Dale was predeceased by his parents, Gordon and Alberta Simpson and a brother, Ross Simpson. Keeping with Dale’s wishes, there will be no formal funeral and the family will hold a Celebration of Dale’s Life at a later date. If desired, Memorial Donations in Dale’s honor may be made directly to the Ronald McDonald House at www.rmhcsca.org, or to the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre at www.rdrhfoundation.com.

I was saddened to see Dale was listed in the ‘In Memoriam’ of The U of A Pharmacy Alumni Magazine. I attended high school with Dale in Swift Current, Saskatchewan and we were classmates in the Faculty of Pharmacy graduating together in 1962. Unfortunately our career paths separated dramatically after graduation and we lost touch. I recall many fun times at university with Dale and our fellow classmates. It seems like yesterday.
Condolences to Dales’ family.

Our sincere codolences Joan and family on your loss. Dale was such a great community minded person with a heart of gold and loved by everyone who knew him. Will treasure all our fun times we all had together working in Kinsmen and Kinettes.

Sincere condolences Joan, Jay ,Cam, Jody and families on the passing of your beloved one, Dale. He was such a talented man at whatever hobby or activity he chose to do. I still rember the great costumes he and Joan would design for the Kinsmen Halloween parties,especially the Mr.Peanut Man one he modeled for us, his employees at the Drug Store. Also I can still recall the aroma of his favourite Rum Curioco pipe tobacco. I enjoyed the years working for Dale in his store in Hanna. Treasure the wonderful memories you have of a life well lived.

I was so sorry to hear this sad news today. Dale was my first pharmacy boss and mentor. Working for him at Simpson’s Pharmacy in Hanna in the early ‘80s was a pleasure.
My condolences to Joan, Jay, Cam, Jody and families. He will forever hold a place in your heart and be a part of your happy memories.
