Dale Burkholder

Our Island community is less colourful this week.

Dale Burkholder has left us. In the early morning hours of September 7th Dale moved on to distant shores.

He maintained his remarkable humour and conducted himself like a champ, leaving with a sense of calm and inner peace. Dale loved this island and the many people of diverse backgrounds and opinions it provided him.

Always shifting fluidly from right to left to ensure a lively dialogue. So many facets to our friend Dale. Fishing, writing, jokes, gardening, really too many to mention.

We will miss him deeply.

There will be a Celebration of Dale’s Life to be announced in the near future. 


Dick Phelps

Thank you to everyone for the incredible support I received after Dick's sudden passing.  

Thank you for all the cards, gifts of food, flowers from the Fire Dept., hugs and words of condolence, and a special thank you to Peter Luckham for bringing our sailboat back to Thetis from Chemainus.

There was no service, at Dick's request, but he loved it here so much and would be so appreciative of the wonderful community that came together in my time of need.

On behalf of myself and our daughter, Katherine, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  

Jan Phelps


Thanks TIVFD!

Thanks to the Thetis Island Volunteer Fire Department who helped me get to the Duncan hospital on Saturday Morning.  I was in a very bad way and your professionalism and support was greatly appreciated.  Thanks again for your help.
