Chick married the love of his life, Beverley June Owen on February 21, 1952. He moved with his wife and children from Lethbridge, Alberta in 1966 and continued his career in the roofing business. After a few years, he owned and operated his own roofing business (United Roofing Ltd.) until his retirement in 1997. He enjoyed bowling and curling and his free time was spent with his family and chasing grandkids from rink to rink. His love of hockey had him at all Kootenay Ice games, sharing seats with his son Trace and grandson Wyatt. Chick spent many hours in the barn with his granddaughters, Shandi and Caitlin. He loved the cowboy way and values of life. He was the special constable and inspector for the SPCA for many years. He passed this passion and love of animals on to his family. He will be missed and forever in our hearts.
