TAYLES, Dwayne It is with deep sadness that we announce the unexpected and sudden passing of our dear husband, father, grandfather, and friend Dwayne Tayles on May 1, 2007. Dwayne Tayles was born on July 7, 1946 in Lacombe, AB. He was an "oil patch kid" and moved around frequently sometimes attending as many as three schools in one school year, and this definitely contributed to his ability to communicate. After his Dad, Pete, passed away, Frieda, Dwayne's Mom, moved the family into Red Deer. It was the first time that the family settled down and stayed in one place for any period of time. He met the love of his life, best friend and future wife Coreen, when he was thirteen years old. He attended high school in Red Deer. Dwayne and Coreen were married in Red Deer. Dwayne became involved in Par Electronics in Calgary in partnership, and as a result moved to Lethbridge where he managed the store. The family moved back to Red Deer in 1972 where Dwayne became involved in real estate sales with Hicke Real Estate. In partnership, he started C. Whitney Realty Ltd. and enjoyed real estate sales for ten years. Dwayne loved people and sales and found himself involved with rentals, office products, modular homes, and finally RV sales. Dwayne was Salesman of the Year 2006 at Uncle Ben's where he was employed at the time of his passing. Dwayne loved socializing with his friends and was an accomplished "teller of tales". Dwayne loved spending time year-round outside "puttering" about on his "hobby farm", and enjoyed the fire pit at every opportunity. Dwayne leaves to mourn his passing, his wife of forty years, Coreen (nee Whitney), his sons Daniel (Carmen), Michael, and Ryan, his grandsons Riordan, Corbin, and Ethan, and numerous relatives and friends. A celebration of Dwayne's life will be held on Saturday, May 5 at 2:00 p.m. at Sunnybrook United Church, 12 Stanton Street in Red Deer.
