With great sadness we announce the passing of Arthur Delmi (Del) Vaughan with his wife Mid and son Darcy by his side. Del was predeceased by his parents and brother Murray.
Del was born Sept 1, 1935 on a farm near Saltcoats, Saskatchewan and grew up in the village of Bangor. He spent much time with his cousins who lived on nearby farms and in the Pool Elevator where his father worked. Del graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. It was at the U of S that he met his wife Mid, a nursing student there. They were married on October 4, 1958.
Del worked for Suncor as a student and then full time for 37 years. His work took him to many places including the Canadian Arctic, China, the US and all over Alberta and BC. The family lived in Calgary for most of his career. When Del retired they moved to a beautiful home they built on the shore of the Shuswap in Eagle Bay, BC.
The family wishes to thank the Shuswap Hospital, Home Care and Hospice that made it possible for them to be with Del. A special thanks to Dr. Venter and staff.
