With deep sadness we report the sudden death of Dale Oakley Jardine of Indian Mountain, Moncton, NB. On Tuesday evening, January 9, 2018, while returning from Saint Andrews where he and his youngest son, Andrew, had gone to pick up a German shepherd puppy, Dale suffered a traumatic car accident which claimed his life.
Father and son were on a mission of Dale’s love for animals, and fortunately Andrew, although suffering anguish in it all, received only a broken arm along with scratches. And the puppy was also spared.
In fact, the boys have taken "Teddy" to their home in Dieppe. All three boys are like Dad – animal lovers and they interpret this puppy as their dad’s final gift to them; a silver lining to the tragedy this family is enduring.
Dale is survived by his three sons: Matthew and his wife, Sarah (Jenkins) Jardine; David and his girlfriend, Caitie White; and Andrew. Other survivors are his mom, Phyllis Jardine and one brother, Terry.
Dale will be remembered both as an extraordinary builder in the Moncton area where as founder of Great Northern Construction, he built many homes and other edifices, and as a devoted father to his sons. He was a quiet family man.
The family will receive relatives and friends at a memorial service to be held on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 1:30pm at Cobb’s Funeral Home, 330 Whitepine Rd., Riverview (869-2007). Rev. Mike Welsh of Agape Ministries in Riverview will be officiating. In Dale’s memory, anyone who wishes to make donations can give to Agape Ministries or the Greater Moncton SPCA.
