It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Dale Masson of Calgary.
At the time of his passing Dale was running in Kananaskis Country with his colleagues from the Burnet, Duckworth and Palmer Law Firm, and accompanied by his wife and boys. Dale is greatly missed by his soul-mate Tanya, his wife of four years, their children Wyatt Jamie (22 months) and Samuel Lewis (2 months), his mother Linda Masson, brother Grant Masson (Monique), all of Edmonton, sister-in-law Tara Stewart (Michael) of Calgary, and Tanya’s parents Barbara and Warren Smith of Olds.
This talented and witty, gentle and loving man will be remembered with smiles by a host of extended family and friends, many of them former and present hockey and law firm team-mates. Dale’s hockey career had him between the pipes from the beginning, ultimately rewarding him with two national championships; a Memorial Cup (Kamloops Blazers) and CIAU Cup (Alberta). Along the way he was a frequent all-star and was honoured to play for Team Canada in a World University tournament. He spent two years as a professional, playing in the ECHL and CHL, before completing his law degree at U of A and articling with BDP, where he was an Associate working in the Securities Department.
Dale’s greatest passion was his family; he loved being a husband to Tanya and Dada to the boys.
