May 18, 1937 – Aug 1, 2020

The CAHS is sad to learn of the passing of former CAHS Vancouver Chapter member Dan Ryan. He was also a Member of the Air Force Officers’ Association and 801 (Vancouver) Wing of the RCAF Association.

Dan was born and raised in the Trail, BC area. After completing High School, he joined the Air Force and enjoyed life as a pilot. He later left the Air Force to enter the advertising world. He spent the last many years of his working life as the advertising manager for the Windsor Plywood stores.

He combined his love of aviation and art in his aviation paintings and airplane models.

He is survived by his wife Marilyn; daughters Ruth (Gord) Lockwood, Crystal Bessem (Michael Harle); grandchildren Ryan Lockwood, Sarah (Bruce) Baldini, Christopher (Kirsty) Bessem and Michael Bessem.
Our many thanks to the staff of Nicola Lodge for their excellent care.
