Karl Dennis Metcalfe, (Dino as he was affectionately called) was born June 24, 1957 in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Karl passed away April 2, 2017 in Innisfail, Alberta in his 59th year.
Dino spent his early years in southern Manitoba. He moved to Salmon Arm in 1972 and completed his schooling.
He worked odd jobs here and there until he found his passion for cooking. He took a culinary course and worked in Vancouver, Salmon Arm and finally settling in Innisfail, Alberta. Dino was very sociable, he loved people and people loved him.
He had a heart of gold and was just a big teddy bear. He always had a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on. He will be terribly missed by so many.
