We are sad to advise that one of our early, significant members, Ole Edliq, passed away on the 11th of September, 2018.
Ole joined the Team in 1977, helped build the first new rescue van for the Team, became one of our first Team trainers for Human Tracking and trained as one of our first Search Managers.
After moving to the Island in 2002, Ole joined the Comox Valley Search and Rescue Team, which he also served for many years.
Ole was a Life Member of North Shore Rescue and Comox SAR and received Provincial recognition with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Minister in 2013.
We offer our condolences to the family and recognize his contribution to both the Team and his community, so selflessly given.
Ole’s Celebration of Life will be held on the afternoon of Sunday October 14, 2018, at the Crown Isle Golf and Country Club in Courtenay BC. Time and other details will be posted when they become available.
