McFADDEN: July 6, 1941- November 26, 2018. Dale McFadden passed away November 26, 2018 at Minnedosa District Hospital surrounded by his wife and children. He was 77 years of age. Dale was born and raised in Flin Flon, MB. Summers were spent at the family cottage on Beaver Lake where his lifelong love of camping and fishing began. His enjoyment of the outdoors also included hunting game birds. Books were a constant as he got much pleasure from reading, whether history, mystery or Shakespeare (he minored in English literature). Music was very much a part of Dale’s life. He completed his Grade 8 Royal Conservatory of Music in piano, played the cornet/trumpet in a trio, and delighted us with his bass voice. Whistling was his trademark. Sports were his passion, as evidenced by his playing baseball, hockey and curling in high school, volleyball and football during his time at Brandon College, and golf, curling and downhill skiing during adulthood and retirement. That passion was transferred to many youth in the Minnedosa community through his coaching/instructing of various sports over the years. He became interested in teaching while tutoring coworkers at the Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Company in Flin Flon which took him back to school in pursuit of an education degree. He was a dedicated teacher of math and science, chemistry being another passion, for over 30 years. In retirement he combined his education skill set with his love of skiing by becoming a ski instructor at Ski Valley, his happy place. Family was paramount to Dale and he actively engaged in the sports and extracurricular activities of his children. He was a loving husband of 51 years and a proud and devoted father and grandfather. He will be remembered for his love of life, his laughter, and his kind and caring nature. He was predeceased by son Mark, sister Maureen, and parents William and Jessie. Surviving are wife Judy, son Tim (Jodi), daughter Marni (Luc) Robert, daughter-in-law Christine and grandchildren Devyn, Ian, Evan, Juliette and blended family Dalton. He also leaves to mourn his brother Terry (Darlene),  sisters-in-law Joan (John) Ellison, Sandy (Sam) Holmes and Arlene (Ray) Mastalier and several nieces and nephews. A celebration of Dale’s life will be held Monday, December 3, 2018 from 4:30-6:00 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion #138 in Minnedosa. Interment will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Minnedosa and District Health Foundation (care of the Minnedosa District Hospital), or a charity of one’s choice
