BURTON, William Dalton

BURTON, William Dalton

With heavy hearts, the family of Dalton Burton announces his sudden passing on New Year’s
Day 2019.
Left to mourn and miss this wonderful man are his daughters, Gwen Chapman (Ian) and Beth
Flynn (Michael Kuiack); the Grandsons he adored, Adam Flynn (Isidora Knezevic) and Alec
Flynn; his Step-Grandchildren, Kimberly Page (Jason), and Josh Chapman; his Step
Great-Grandchildren, Elodie and Callum Page; and his many nieces, nephews, and cousins in
BC and Ontario.
Dalton will also be sadly missed by his cherished companion, Nola Mazar, and her family.
Dalton was predeceased in 2010 by his beloved wife of 57 years, Jewel.
Dalton’s 91 year journey began in 1927 in Cochrane, Ontario. As a young man, he moved to
Kapuskasing where he began a 42-year career as an electrician at Spruce Falls Power & Paper
Co. In 1988, Dalton and Jewel followed their daughters to BC.
In characteristic style, Dalton and Nola danced 2018 away at the New Years Eve festivities in
Kelowna’s Sunrise Village. He left to join Jewel for his next dance, in heaven, early in the
evening of New Year’s Day 2019.
Dalton’s funeral service and interment beside his precious Jewel will be held at St. Andrew’s
Anglican Church, 4619 Lakeshore Rd., Kelowna at 2 pm on Friday, January 11, 2019. A special
“Dalton Burton Memorial Happy Hour” reception will follow at the Sunrise Village Rec. Hall (1255
Raymer Ave.) from 4-6 pm.
The family wishes to thank Rev. Anne Privett and the parish family of St. Andrew’s Anglican
Church for their support and the Emergency/Trauma staff of Kelowna General Hospital for their
gentle care.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Dalton’s memory to the BC Children’s Hospital
Foundation or to St. Andrew’s Anglican Church.

    Dear Nola, Beth & Family - We were very sorry to hear of Dalton's passing. He and Nola made such a sweet couple and were a joy to be around - particularly at the Clubhouse dances in the Village - loved how they were always so supportive and caring of one another. The times I engaged in conversation with Dalton - were entertaining to say the least - he was quite the character. I hope all the wonderful memories you hold in your heart will get you through this difficult time. Sincerely, Eric & Diane Greer - Sunrise Village
