Dwight Ecklund

In Memory of Dwight Ecklund MCIP, RPP

March 15, 1965 –

January 11, 2016

One must have the courage to stand up to your beliefs and not conform to the masses.

A self-starter with a strong sense of individuality, initiative and integrity, Dwight was born March 15, 1965 at Central Butte, Sask. to Glen and Marlene (Dean) and big brother Calvin. He passed away suddenly at his home January 11, 2016 in the city he loved, Vancouver BC.

A life-long learner, Dwight graduated from high school in Revelstoke, BC. He gathered some work experience before enrolling at the University of Waterloo.He graduated with a Certificate in Environmental Management, Masters of Public Policy and Bachelor of Environmental Studies (Honours). Dwight was a member of the Canadian Institute of Planners and the Planning Institute of BC. Dwight enjoyed his long-term employment with Moodie Consultants, making many life-long relationships.

Education and Arts were a large part of Dwight’s life as were a “good coffee enjoyed with good company.”

True to his calling as a professional planner, family events always had to have a plan before the day began.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Condolences can be left on Victory Memorial Gardens website: www.victoryfuneralcentre.ca. Memorial donations can be made to the Vancouver Public Library, Simon Fraser University library or the Knowledge Network in Dwight’s name.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
