It is with heavy hearts that we regret to announce the passing of Stuart William Minifie on March 13th, 2016 suddenly at his home in Desert Cove, Vernon, BC.
Stuart was born on April 28th, 1939 in Nelson, BC. Stuart was predeceased by his wife Anita, parents Frank and Thelma Minifie and brother Allen. He will be lovingly remembered by his children Shelan Hanna (Ken), Lori Anderson (Dan), Scott Minifie (Brianne), his grandchildren Ashlee and Breeann (Francis), Rylan, Trevor and Jenna (Pickett), his great-grandson Dayten (Tom), his brother Larry Minifie and sisters Rochelle Termehr (Peter), Heather Collett (John), Lynn Minifie (Guy Debeault) as well as long-time family friends Stan and Nita Beaulieu and numerous other family members and friends. Stu and Anita met in high school and were married September 16th, 1961 in Revelstoke, BC where they began their family. After living in various cities throughout BC, Stuart's career with the Provincial Government brought the family to Dawson Creek where they resided for 25 years. Fishing, canoeing, camping, ball, lacrosse, hockey and coaching were all his favorite things. Stu donated countless hours of his time volunteering to many different sports organizations around Dawson Creek, especially Dawson Creek Hockey and Dawson Creek Senior Canucks.
He was recently awarded a plaque on the Dawson Creek Memorial Arena Wall of Fame in the achievement corner as an outstanding "Builder", after 14 years as an acting member on the DCMHA executive, and also as a minor hockey coach. He won the 1992 Earl Johnson memorial award from the DCAA for contributions to the furtherance of sports in Dawson Creek. In 2001/02 he won the Northern Peace Hockey League Championship, the Lawrence Cup and Campbell Cup. It was the first time in 26 years that Dawson Creek had won a senior men's championship. He also helped organize and host the BCAHA Savage Cup Senior AAA playoff during his 10 years as President of the Dawson Creek Senior Canucks. He was also an avid fan and supporter of the Junior A Vernon Vipers and had just recently purchased his season ticket for next season. Stuart will be remembered for his wonderful sense of humour and his involvement with his family and friends. He will be missed.

There will be a Celebration of Life held for Stuart at 2:00pm on Saturday, April 2nd, 2016 at the Dawson Creek Memorial Arena in Dawson Creek, BC with a reception to follow. The family has requested that attendees of the celebration please wear a hockey jersey of any kind in memory of Stuart. Those wishing to do so may make donations in Stuart's name to the Greater Vernon KidSport (3310 - 37 Avenue. Vernon, BC V1T 2Y5) or Dawson Creek KidSport (Box 150, Dawson Creek, BC V1G 4G4). Expressions of sympathy can be forwarded to the family at
