Terrace Man Being Remembered For Helping Develop Local Leisure Facilities

Friends and family of a Terrace area man, who recently lost a battle with cancer, are remembering him as a key figure in the development of leisure facilities in Terrace and Jackpine Flats.

Dennis Beaudette died late last month.

He served in the Canadian Rangers, and was also instrumental in building walking trails in Terrace, Kitimat, Prince Rupert, the Nass Valley and Haida Gwaii, as well as the community park in Jackpine Flats.

Beaudette and his wife Fern also owned and operated Beaudette Contracting, which looked after both landfills in the Terrace area.

His memorial service will be this Friday at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
