About George DeBeck II and Eliza Ann Dow; http://www.theyerxas.ca/yerxa/7samue2_note.htm:

In May of 1870 George DeBeck II accidentally slipped while logging and was killed. His obituary in the Mainland Guardian dated Sat May 7, 1870,  p. 3 reads:

“Fatal Accident

On Wednesday afternoon last, Mr. George DeBeck met with his death in a very sudden and unexpected manner. It would appear from the evidence elicited at the inquest, that while in the act of stepping over some logs lying at a sharp angle, he slipped and fell. The concussion was so sudden and violent as to produce dislocation of the vertebrae, the immediate cause of his death. Mr. DeBeck held a very high position in the esteem and respect of his fellow citizens, and will be a real loss to the community. He leaves a widow and family to deplore his loss. Mr.DeBeck was a native of New Brunswick where he held a very respectable position. When the sad news, reached the city, Dr. Black the coroner for the district, proceeded to the inlet and did an inquest on the remains. From the position of the deceased when found by his youngest son and the character of the injuries there can be no doubt as to the cause of death, and the verdict was returned accordingly. The remains of the lamented gentleman were brought to town on Thursday, and will be interred today at the cemetery in Sapperton (Now called Fraser Cemetery in New Westminister)”

Edwin Denis DeBeck, death notice, Vancouver Sun, November 16, 2007, page F6; http://www.squamishfuneralchapel.com/book-of-memories/294197/debeck-denis/obituary.php: “Edwin Denis DeBeck passed away on November 8, 2007 at Squamish, aged 96 years. Born in Vancouver on April 18, 1911. Predeceased by his wife Dorothy of 63 years, daughters Wilma Visona and Barbara Helgason, two grandchildren, Denis Helgason and Victoria Jarvi, brother Keary, sister Nedra Marshall. He is survived by his four grandson, Edwin, Steven & Brian Visona, Danny Helgason, his dear granddaughters-in-law Christine, Elaine, Yvonne and Vanessa, six great grandchildren, two great- great grandchildren, brothers Ward and Fred (Nancy), sister Betsy (Peter) Henderson and Dorothy’s niece Anne. Denis has a thoroughly happy childhood in the Marpole area of Vancouver. He graduated from Magee high School at age 17. He had many different jobs, from blasting in a quarry to longshoring and door factory work etc. The first sawmilling job he had was in 1933 when he started to work for Northern Mills at Parkhurst (now part of Whistler). Denis was married in 1938 and he and his wife Dorothy worked hard to get their first home built at Parkhurst. Later on that year the mill burned down and with that went all the jobs. In 1940 he set up his own portable mill and over the next 5 years he worked along the P.G.E. cutting railroad ties. In 1945 he moved to Squamish, a place he came to love very much. He continued to operate his own sawmills in Squamish until he retired in 1979 at age 68. During this time he built the road that led to the development of Alice Lake Park. The road was eventually continued on up to the area known today as DeBeck Mountain and the DeBeck Trail. A Commemorative plaque is at the base of the trail. The fun things in his life were first his family and friends. He also enjoyed golf, cribbage, curling, bridge, fishing, travel and above all, Buccaneer Bay where he first went when he was 12 and last visited when he was 94 in 2005. His family are deeply grateful to his many friends who have helped him over the last few years and sincere thanks are extended also to the wonderful staff at Hilltop House, Squamish General Hospital and Dr. Richard Cudmore. Funeral Service will be held on Saturday November 17, 2007 at 2:00 p.m. at the Squamish Funeral Chapel 40440 Tantalus Road, Garibaldi Highlands, B.C. Rev Michael Stuchbery Officiant. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Hilltop House 38146 Behrner Drive Squamish, B.C. V8B OC8 To sign the book of condolences please click on squamishfuneralchapel.com.”
