STRACHAN, James Lance

1950 ~ 2010

Lance died suddenly on June 28, 2010 at home on Denman Island.

He was born in Comox on June 27, 1950. Lance was predeceased by his parents, Harvey and Eunice (Necie) Strachan and brothers, Alex and Richard.

He will be sadly missed by his loving wife, Emily; daughters, Tina Strachan and Arlene Ayers (Ed) and grandchildren: Jake, Dale, Eric, Logan, Emily and Wesley.

Lance is also survived by brothers: Terry, Bruce, Kevin and Blair; sisters: Mert Salvail (Fred), Leanne Parsons (Dale) and Donna Sue Strachan.

Lance loved nature, especially Hornby and Denman Islands where he grew up and spent many years. He loved spending time with his cherished grandchildren on the farm and at the beach, along with his constant companion, his little dog, Maggie.

A Celebration of Lance’s life will be held at a later date.

The family would like those wishing to do so to plant a tree in Lance’s memory.
