May 15, 1937 – May 26, 2012
Elwood Dominique of Barriere, BC, passed away peacefully in Barriere on May 26, 2012. He was 75 years of age.
Born in Grenfell, Saskatchewan on May 15, 1937 to parents Theodore John and Frida Dominique, Woody started his career in Winnipeg, MB as an apprentice and was an accomplished machinist for 41 years. He retired from Welwood in Williams Lake BC in 2003. Woody enjoyed coaching/managing minor sports such as hockey and baseball in both Merritt and Williams Lake over the years. When Woody and his family moved to BC in 1970, it opened a whole new chapter, with many opportunities; Woody enjoyed the outdoors and nature. He was an avid fisherman and hunter, and he took advantage of every opportunity to go camping and fishing with family and friends.
Woody will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 51 years, Carol, by his son Wayne (Lisa), his daughter Denise (Ian) Menzies, by grandchildren Bailey Dominique and Riley Dominique, and by many cousins, family and friends scattered throughout the provinces of Canada.
A Celebration of Woody’s life will be held sometime this summer in Williams Lake, BC.Print This Obituary & Condolences
