GALL- Douglas Henry
January 21, 1919 – June 13, 2008
On June 13, 2008 at the age of 89, Dad passed into the presence of the Lord. Dearly loved and sadly missed by his wife Jessie, daughter Lorna and son Ken. He is also survived by 6 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren. Dad was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba to Alexander and Gertrude Gall. The family moved to BC when Dad was 9 years old.
Dad was a building contractor for many years in Vancouver and after spending 3 years in California, Dad and Mom moved to Maple Ridge in 1972. Dad always had a project on the go and spent many hours successfully rebuilding cars, boats and planes. Dad had a great sense of humor and loved to tell stories about growing up in a family of 4 boisterous boys.
Our family would like to thank the staff of Willow Manor and Dr. Larry Lim for their excellent care. A celebration of dad’s life will be held on June 19th at 1:00pm at the Maple Ridge Alliance Church, 20399 Dewdney Trunk Road, Maple Ridge. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Union Gospel Mission in Vancouver.
