Denis Walter Geoffery Mycock
December 12, 1946 ~ June 4, 2013
Denis, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend, passed away suddenly at 66 years of age. All who knew and loved him remember him as a solid and deeply principled man who loved to be surrounded by his friends and family. He took great enjoyment in hunting, fishing and gardening and was a longtime member of the BC Wildlife Federation. Denis was born and raised on a farm in West Sannich where he developed a strong work ethic and love of animals and the outdoors.
After high school he left Victoria and headed for the north, working for the BC Forest Service while living with his sister Ruby and family in the Bulkley area. He saved enough money to buy his dream car, a 1967 Chevelle, later to become the source of many a great story.
In 1968 he met Georgina, his wife of forty-four years, at the White Spot Drive-In with 6 simple words, “What kind of car is that?” They started a life together first in Duncan and later settled in Big Lake, where they became part of the fabric of the community, always willing to lend a hand to his neighbours, friends and family.
Retirement brought grandchildren and provided for more quality time with family over the holidays and camping, hunting and fishing. He took more enjoyment out of watching others catching fish than in catching one himself, often eager to hand his rod to someone else to reel in.
He was a proud father and doted over his granddaughters. Lovingly remembered by his wife Georgina, son Jeffery (Anita), daughters Tracy and Jennifer (Branden Moskwa), and granddaughters Sage and Jamie and brother David (Georgina).
He was predeceased by his father Walter, mother Edna, sister Ruby Swan, and granddaughter Amelia Moskwa.
If so desired, in lieu of flowers, a memorial donation may be made in Denis’ name directly to Williams Lake Chapter of the Mental Health Association, or the BC Wildlife Federation.
