Bye Bye........

DEAN WOOLF QUINTON, beloved husband of Thelma Tolman Quinton, passed away quietly at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital on January 29, 2010 from causes incident to his age. Dean was born May 12, 1921 to James and Bernice Quinton in Cardston, Alberta and lived his entire life in the area until health concerns for him and Thelma necessitated a move to Lethbridge where the required medical facilities were readily available. He worked hard to assist and provide for his family and fond memories of him are a cherished blessing. He and Thelma, 'the prettiest girl I had ever met', were married in the Cardston Alberta Temple and on January 31 would have celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary. He so loved his family, His beloved Thelma with children Ronnald (Catherine), Maureen (Jim Scott), Terrance (Joan), Coralee (Gary Purnell), James (Connie), and Jana (Randy Graham) will miss him dearly. Dean had a soft spot in his heart for their 33 grandchildren and 48 great grandchildren. Family and friends were more than welcome in the Quinton home and their table was always laden with good food. Their home was filled with fun and laughter. He so delighted in raiding his candy supply to share with kids of any age.
