July 13, 1960 – June 29, 2021
It is with great sadness the family of Barron (Dwayne) Curtis Fogarty announces his passing on June 29, 2021.
Born July 13, 1960, in Winnipeg Manitoba, Dwayne was the third of 6 brothers. His childhood years were spent growing up in Belleville Ontario, Four Wing Baden-Baden Germany (where he picked up the German language), the Comox Valley of British Columbia, Regina Saskatchewan, Vancouver British Columbia, and then settling in Victoria for the remainder of his life.
Dwayne is survived by his mother Rose-Marie Fogarty (Lamoureux), and brothers Peter, Todd, and Troy, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.
He was predeceased by his father, Joseph Henri Roland Fogarty, brothers David Charles Earl Fogarty, and Karl Hans Joseph Fogarty.
Throughout life Dwayne enjoyed playing hockey and was an avid Scout in his younger days. As a member of the Culinary Arts, Dwayne expressed his skills and creativity. He was well known for his love of miming and putting on a performance in downtown Victoria. Hours were spent practicing and playing his favourite instrument, the harmonica.
In his later years you would find Dwayne enjoying his days and nights listening to his radio, which was always nearby.
A minimalist by nature, Dwayne kept a simple life, but his big heart would bring smiles to everyone whom he met and will always be remembered as our clown, entertaining his family and friends at every opportunity. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
A private Celebration of Life will be held by close family at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to Piercy’s Mt. Washington Funeral Home.

“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of the buffalo in the wintertime, the splash of a cresting whale, the whisper of an eagle’s wings soaring above and the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. Rest well in your new life my friend.” – Ladd FogartyObituary
