Dean Rowland Battersby

May 15, 1960 – January 28, 2013

After a brief battle with cancer it is with great sadness we have to announce the passing of a wonderful husband, father and friend.

Dean is predeceased by his father Larry Battersby of Port Hope, ON. He is survived by his wife and soul mate of 30 years Diane and proud father of beautiful daughters Danielle, Deana (Derek) and always proud papa to grandson Dustin, all of Comox, BC. Dean is also survived by his mother Diane Battersby, his sister Lori (Bill) and brother David (Peggy) plus niece Madeline and nephews Max and Matthew (Jo), all of Port Hope, ON.

Dean enjoyed his military career at 19 Wing Comox. He cherished his new found family and friends who surrounded us with open arms and support on this journey. We would like to express special thanks to the Silver Totems, 442 Squadron SAR Techs and Roxanne’s Fashions for touching our hearts forever. Thank you to Dr. Maria Chow and the nursing staff on 3rd floor of St. Joseph’s Hospital for their care and compassion.

No service by request a gathering to be held at a later date.
