↑Francis Kai John Dechert: Oct. 21, 1961 - Nov. 25, 2012
Francis Kai John Dechert  – Born on October 21, 1961 in Scarborough, Ontario and died at age 51 on November 25, 2012 in Surrey, BC. After a nine month struggle with lung cancer he succumbed, but he never surrendered.  Francis grew up and lived in Ontario for much of his life, moving to Vancouver six years ago and loving his Kitsilano home. He was in his teens when personal computers became available and his whole professional life was spent doing computer programming, computer automated design and information technology management and consultation. But his most cherished times were hiking in the mountains on BC’s North Shore and Whistler area, and he loved the physical and intellectual challenges of his favorite recreation of geocaching. Francis had a sharp wit and well-informed opinions and his attention to detail made him a valuable planner. He was a loyal friend and loved his family fiercely. He is survived by his loving mother Karen Dechert, brothers John (Buzz) and Robert, sisters Victoria and Christine, nephews Robert, Michael, Jon, Kai and David, niece Maggie and his valued extended family in Denmark. Predeceased by his beloved father, John Earnest Nelson Dechert.

We lost Donna suddenly and tragically in a car accident on a snowy fall morning in Essex County, Ontario. Donna was a 1973 graduate of USS and a 1977 graduate of the University of Guelph. She was happily pursuing her career calling as a Early Childhood Educator. Those who knew her are better people for having had the experience. We shall not forget.

I had the pleasure of teaching Steve @ USS & were good friends of his great parents Lloyd & Shirley,teaching with Lloyd for several years @ USS.I watched Steve,his brother Jim & sister Cindy grow up on Reach road & spent time relaxing @ their cottage in Minden with its own home made golf course.After graduating Steven became an accomplished helicopter pilot in Canmore Alberta where my oldest son David trained & became an accomplished pilot himself with Alpine Helicopters.I visited with Steven in Canmore shortly before his tragic death in a helicopter accident in the Maldives.Steve was highly regarded in the helicopter pilot community in the west & his death was very difficult for his family,friends & fellow pilots.We all remember Steve's million dollar smile & his genuine love of life & humour & his gentle demeanour.God Bless you my friend,soar to the highest heights & reunite with your wonderful parents.

Doug was such a great friend that I grew up with! Walking up and down Bell St., ice cream in my grandparents back yard as kids in the summer, being Doug's grad escort. I moved away after high school and thankfully the wonderful world of internet brought Doug and I back to friendship for the final years of his life! He was a wonderful friend and is greatly missed!

Doug was a great guy -- I remember him in the 1985 musical.  Thanks for the good times, Doug...
