He is predeceased by his Grandfather Jack Johnston and his great grandfather George Rigets
Dalen is survived by his Mother Stacie Johnston (Mark Jacobson); Father Richard Vissia (Belinda Williams) Sister Chiara Vissia; Step sister Kianda, Grandmother Karen Johnston, Oma and Opa Willie & Ron Vissia; Uncles Darcy Johnston (Maria van der Veldt), Ron (Irene) Vissia, Paul (Sherise) Vissia, Aunt Michelle (Steve) Bell, Great Aunt and Uncle Marlene & Phil Dietrich; Great Grandmother Alwyn Rigets; many cousins and amazing friends.
Dalen had an incredibly mechanical brain and always wanted to understand how things worked along with the best ways to do things. Many of the trades were on his radar as a career path, but he had yet to commit to just one so soon.
Dalen loved music, dancing, skateboarding, snowboarding, jumping off high objects. He was always trying new things and almost only if they involved danger. No dare was too big, but only after thorough research online to ensure he would minimize the risk of injury! But by far, being with friends was number one.
Dalen was always in good spirits and made sure that people knew this by constantly being a sassy comedian and practical joker but in contrast a personal counselor to his friends whenever they needed him. He did always make sure to keep an eye on his younger sister Chiara. Dalen had an infectious smile and a loving carefree spirit that seemed to permeate any situation he might be in.
Dalen, you were an amazing son, grandson, nephew, friend and cheeky comedian and you will be missed more than you could ever have imagined. Thanks for lighting up our lives and we hope you keep our seats warm *wink*.
A Service to remember and celebrate Dalen's life will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013 at 1PM at The Kin Hut, 4102 Hollywood, Port Alberni. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Kid Sport or The Jamie Collins Legacy Fund is suggested by the family.
