Okie Dokkie memories
Floyd Dokkie or ?Okie?, A.F. Dokkie, passed away on January 7th 2009. His active and cheerful personality enriched everyone he met and there are thousands of people and hundreds of communities where Floyd left his tracks. We are one of them.
Floyd was a giver and helper; always looking for ways to help others.
·The gifted networked sprat his positive energy not only at work and in the family,
·he was one of five founding directors of Tumbler Ridge based Terry Lansdowne Foundation and its acting secretary, donor and photographer.
· Tumbler Ridge Artists enjoyed his inspiration as a talented member with spectacular photography.
·As a columnist for Tumbler Ridge News Floyd wrote?Tough Guys ? Tough Jobs?, articles about the challenges and the hard work based on his own experience.
·Floyd worked in many professions and at many places known as ?Okie? for his uplifting approach to job and coworkers. We knew him as a truck and bus driver who worked with the Wolverine Mine. But trucks and cars and auto-body work was just one small portion of his many skills and talents.
·Floyd?s native heritage (he was an active trapper) made him to a strong advocate for our environment. Following the path of his grandfather, Chief Daniel Dokkie and his Father Chief John Dokkie, Floyd worked with adults and youth to teach survival skills.
·Floyd joined the Canadian Rangers to be Junior Canadian Ranger instructor. His intention for 2009 was to create interesting program for our local youth with focus on outdoors skills.
·His new established business 1A Okie Dokkie Tours was designed to educate and train people in living in balance with nature.
·Floyd was a multitalented proud man with a great vision; his outgoing personality and hunger for knowledge made him a person everyone liked to be with.
We will miss his ?Have an Okie Dokkie Day?.
