<div itemprop="description">Dale Orbin &ldquo;Spoof&rdquo; Edighoffer<br />November 19, 1947 &ndash; October 12, 2015<br /><br />It is with great sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of Dale Edighoffer on October 12, 2015, at the age of 67. <br /><br />As per his wishes, he spent his last days at home with family, friends and his dogs. <br /><br />Dale is lovingly remembered by his wife of 41 years, Debra; son Jason (Kari); daughter Lindsay McMahon; five grandchildren: Gracie, Orrin, Emily, Fynn and Calla; his two dogs Willie and Romeo; sister Mary-Lynn (Ron) Waschuk; sisters-in-law Jean McManus, Doreen McManus and extended family Pat Delorme; as well as one aunt and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. <br /><br />He was predeceased by his parents Orb and Ina; sister Linda and brother Edward, both in infancy; half-brothers Neil McManus and Barry McManus; and extended family, Gary Delorme.<br /><br />Dale was born and raised in Saskatoon, and grew up in the Mount Royal area. He attended St. Goretti and Mount Royal schools. As an adolescent, he was an avid scout who not only learned but lived the virtues of the scout prayer and the scout promise. He also received the highest award available &ndash; the Queen&rsquo;s Scout Award. <br /><br />He received his certification in auto body while attending SIAST. He was a longtime member of the Draggins Car Club, where he became very well known for his talent in the fine art of upholstery. In 1974, he opened his own shop, &ldquo;Upholstery by Dale&rdquo;, and then went on to work at the U of S Maintenance Department in 1978, where he spent the remainder of his working career as an upholsterer. <br /><br />Dale enjoyed spending time with friends and family, especially his grandchildren, whom he loved to tease. His willingness to help others could always be seen, whether it was by working on someone&rsquo;s vehicle, furniture, or construction projects. He had a great sense of humour and never was one to back down from a practical joke or silly shenanigans. <br /><br />He will be sadly missed by all and forever remembered in our hearts.<br /><br />The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at St. Paul&rsquo;s Hospital Dialysis and Intensive Care Units. <br /><br />In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Saskatoon Unit, 101 440 2nd Avenue North, Saskatoon, SK S7K 2C3 the Canadian Diabetes Association, Saskatchewan Division, 104 2301 Avenue C North, Saskatoon, SK S7L 5Z5 or St. Paul&rsquo;s Hospital Dialysis Unit, 1702 20th Street West, Saskatoon, SK S7M 0Z9 <br /><br />Vigil for Dale will be held on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, October 16, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. with celebrant Rev.
