December 1, 1948 - October 4, 2014 With profound sadness we announce Glen Dale-Johnson passed following a short battle with cancer. He left us while holding his wife Karen’s hand and with family at his side. Glenwood Walter Dale-Johnson was born in Seattle, Washington. At the age of 4, with his brothers Rod & Vern and parents Frank & Marnie, they relocated to Paul Lake, BC where Glen would spend the most formative years of his life. Operating Echo Lodge with his family, Glen found his love for fishing, waterskiing, snow skiing, hard work and horsing around. After graduating Kam High in 1967, Glen attended BCIT where he became a Civil Engineering Technician, starting a long road of excellence in his field. He was admired by peers for his knowledge, precision and amazing aptitude for design. In 1986, he joined close friend Terry Underwood at TRUE Engineering where he worked until retirement in 2011. In 1970, while in hospital, Glen met and flirted with a pretty, young nursing school student who cared for him. 18 months later and one week after Karen’s graduation, the two were married in Kamloops. They settled in Westsyde in a home they built on Bank Road. Eventually, daughter Tamara (1976) and son Ryan (1977) completed the family. In the winter of 1990 the family relocated to a small acreage on Dairy Road where Glen’s amazing ability to learn any skill would shine in his adoption of a farming lifestyle - building the straightest fences imaginable, caring for horses, tending to all the neighbours’ hay fields and constantly maintaining, repairing and improving all things mechanical. Glen always had a love of things with motors and wheels that perhaps started with squeezing a Porsche motor into his VW Bug. More recently he neared completion of a 1948 International pick-up - a 30+ year restoration of the same model vehicle on which he learned to drive. In 2005, during a trans America tour with his brother Vern, Glen found a love for British racing cars that led to his purchase of a Caterham Super-7. He spent many happy hours working on and touring in the “Seven” with co-pilot Karen. Glen opened his heart and toolbox to all. Family and friends alike knew that they could count on his love and help without question.
