Dexter H. Pennington

Oct. 21 1924-Oct. 19, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.

‘Dex’ was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. He joined the airforce at the age of 18 and became an airframe mechanic. Upon discharge in 1945 he returned home to work with Alberta Pacific Grain Co. Ltd and then on to Home Oil. Dex served in many administrative positions in Alberta and B.C. until his retirement. Dex had a passion for the sport of hockey which saw him play until the age of 83.

Dex is survived by his wife Jeannie, his true love and soul mate. He is survived by his children Valerie, Rod (Lynne), Don (Linda), his 3 step-children Cheryl, Tim (Joanne), Scott (Trina), and their families. He will be sadly missed by us all and by his many loving friends.

The family would like to express their deepest appreciation to Dr. Tanya Daws, Home Support and St. Joseph’s Hospital nursing staff. We also thank our dear friends Lee and Garth and so many friends and neighbours of Stratford Gate-we wouldn’t have made it so far without your help.

Cremation. No service by Dex request.
