September 20, 1963 to May 22, 2019

Eric Dalzell went home to be with Jesus on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, after 10 months of battling with brain cancer. He fought long and hard to stay here with his family and friends and we are very proud of him.

Eric was born in Grand Rapids, Manitoba. He moved to Pickle Lake, Ontario at the age of nine with his parents and brother. He spend his adult years working for the Hudson’s Bay Company, Precambrian Wholesale, Dona Lake Mine, Mistik North, and OPP as a guard. He began his work with the ambulance in 1988 as a volunteer and proceeded to complete his diploma in paramedicine in 2007 with distance education. He was a dedicated paramedic for 30 years, and was respected by his colleagues and his patients. He was loved by his little town where he also served as Fire Chief and the Emergency Management Coordinator.

Eric was a lifelong member of Pickle Lake Gospel Chapel where he served as the Sunday School teacher. He will be remembered for his dedication to God, good teaching and giving nature, always willing to lend a hand with whatever needed to be done. He will also be remembered for his love home improvement projects, crosswords puzzles and sitting on his deck.

He is survived by his loving wife of 27 years, Senia (Halteman) Dalzell, his four children: Coral, Brittany, Taylor, and Ethan; His mother, Georgina Dalzell, and his father, James Dalzell; and his brothers Gerald and Don, as well as many relatives on both sides of his family. He will also be greatly missed by coworkers and many friends.
