In Memoriam

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

In Memoriam is dedicated to our comrades and friends that have passed away.


Dick Storie was a long time member of Branch 179 and served in the Royal Canadian Navy attaining the rank of Chief Petty Officer 2nd Class. Dick was most famous for the line ‘Take Your Hat Off!’ … heard loudly to anyone who dared to walk through the door with their hat on. As a memorial the branch has immortalized Dick’s favorite table, the one closest the side door, with a plaque insuring Dick will always have a seat at the Branch. Dick’s Celebration of Life was held Sunday April 26th, 2015 at Grandview Legion. Many thanks to all that made it a success.
