Dale Haggins passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2023 at Huron Hospice in Clinton.
The devoted husband, for 35 years, of Bev (Garside) Haggins, Dale was the brother of Gary Haggins and Tami (Mark) Walton and the brother-in-law of Doug (Linda) Garside, and Ann (James) Pappin, Marg (Leland) Crim and Ken Garside.
He was the adored uncle and great-uncle to many nieces and nephews. Dale was predeceased by his parents Andrew V.H. and Jeanne Haggins and parents-in-law Al and Bev Garside.
Dale had a “need for speed”, beginning his career life as a helicopter pilot in Niagara Falls. He transitioned to coach driving in Alberta and ice road trucking in Northwest Territories. The last 31 years he hauled for Sparling Propane. Dale’s “need for speed” included great adventures with motorcycles, classic cars and a side-by-side. Through his tremendous expertise, he built and modified each of these to his own precise applications.
A service was held on Sunday, Oct. 1 at the Wingham Columbus Centre, followed by a celebration of Dale’s life.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Huron Residential Hospice through McBurney Funeral Home, Wingham.
