With deep sadness, it is advised that Wesley Raymond Dakus (April 2, 1938 - August 18, 2013) passed away peacefully in Vancouver and has gone back to his first love – MUSIC. Predeceased by his parents, Peter and Anne. Survived by Caryl Swityk Dakus, his wife and "forever friend", his sister, Kerryl Young, and his brothers (Jack, Paul, Marvin and Rodney), and by Mavis Vaugeois. Many thanks to all nursing and medical staff who treated him so kindly at Vancouver General Hospital and Windermere Care Centre. Private memorials will be held, and a "Celebration of Life" in Edmonton (October) will be announced later and on Facebook. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
