1932 – 2015

“The mountains are calling and I must go” John Muir.

On the afternoon of Sunday, November 15, 2015, Paul Mill Dickeson died at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital at the age of 83 years. Paul was born in Salisbury, Rhodesia on September 30, 1932.

He leaves to cherish his memory his dearly loved wife of 56 years, Maggie, his three children; Holly (Mark), Ian (Niki) and Kirst, four grandchildren; Craig, Eric, Connor and Chloe and his two beloved dogs.

Paul was an avid outdoorsman who thrived in his passion to hike and ski in the mountains. He found great solace and peace while in the hills and taught us to appreciate and love the beauty of this area. We will remember him for his kindness, strength, compassion and booming laugh.

Paul was a well-respected teacher at Mount Baker Secondary School and was loved by many of his students. He was the epitome of the phrase, “a gentleman and a scholar”. He will be deeply missed by many.

If you’d like to pay your respects to Paul,

he will be on Windy Pass in the summer.
