DALE SANFORD GAMEY Sadly, on Thursday, February 22, 2018, Dale Sanford Gamey passed away at the age of 65, at the Riverview Health Centre, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, after a brave battle with cancer. Dale had lived in Winnipeg for many years. Dale was born and raised in Roblin, Manitoba. He grew up in a close family and with a great group of friends who he kept in touch with when he moved to Winnipeg in 1970. Dale graduated from Computer Programming at Red River College in 1973, and his first job was with Health Sciences Centre. He then went on to work for the Manitoba Public Insurance Corporation and finally Manitoba Hydro. One of Dale's great joys was to take his daughter and son, and all their friends to practice and play basketball when they were young. This led him to become one of the founding members of the Winnipeg Minor Basketball Association. Dale leaves behind, his ex-wife Karen, two children, daughter Brooke, son Jay, daughter-in-law Erin and two grandchildren, Brixton and Jonas. They live in Winnipeg and Gonor, Manitoba. Dale is also survived by his mother Mary Gamey, his sister Lark Gamey, and brothers, Blair Gamey and Tye Gamey. His father Wilford Clarke Gamey, passed away at the age of 95, in Robin, Manitoba, in 2012. Both the viewing and service will be held at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba on Tuesday, February 27. Viewing will be from 3:15 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., service at 4:00 p.m. with dinner to follow. Everyone is welcome. In lieu of flowers, kindly make a donation to CancerCare Manitoba at

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I'm shocked and saddened to have just learned of Dale's passing. Although we lost touch with one another when I moved to Calgary in 1997, I still considered him to be a dear friend who will be very sadly missed. I first met Dale when we both worked at MPIC and we remained very close over the years. His kindness, generosity and wonderful sense of humour kept me going through some dark days and were a source of joy during the good ones. Rest easy, my old buddy. I hope they have Patsy Cline on the jukebox wherever you are. - Posted by: Grahame Newton (Friend) on: Mar 22, 2018

  • My condolences Brooke on the passing of your father. - Posted by: Jon Anthony (friend) on: Mar 05, 2018

  • Our condolences to the Gamey family. Dale's passion for basketball and serving the community had significant influence on the Noonan's household. After help building the WMBA in the early years and running Waverly Heights basketball program as director, Dale passed the torch to Dave. I was new to basketball and Waverly Heights basketball program but with Dale's encouragement and support I was able to take over for him for the next ten years. Basketball has brought great joy to our family throughout the years. Our involvement with the basketball community has built us lifelong friendships and support, including Dale's son Jay. Dale made a difference in our lives. Thank You. Sincerely The Noonan's - Posted by: The Noonan's (Friends) on: Feb 27, 2018
