Arthur Dick Mulholland

Arthur Dick Mulholland, 79, of Burlington, Ontario, passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 13, 2013. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia to Arthur and Gwendolyn Mulholland, he lived most of his life in Toronto, Ontario and Fernie, British Columbia.

Dick is survived by his daughter Marjie Fraser (Michael), his sons Don (Pamela) and Matt Mulholland (Natasha), his step-son Michael Thompson (Carolyn), his brother David Mulholland and his three grandchildren Richard Mulholland, Curtis Fraser and Daniel Fraser. He was predeceased by his loving and much adored wife Billie (Plomer) Mulholland and both of his parents. Dick was a loving husband, father, son and grandfather and he was a friend to all.

He, like his mother, always flashed a loving and warm smile that made everyone feel a bit better and warm inside, even at the worst of time. He spent the majority of his life working at the TD Bank in Toronto, Vancouver and then Fernie. He loved Fernie so much that even after leaving the bank, he stayed there and eventually became mayor, a position that he held for over two terms and during which time he put his heart and soul into many projects that remain in Fernie to this day. It was a very hard decision for him to leave Fernie after the loss of his wife and to come back to Ontario, but it is a decision he never regretted. He spent his last six years with his family and seeing the world. He never stopped living life to the fullest and was an inspiration to all.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Mission to Seafarers, Pier 51, 8 Unwin Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5A 1A1.
