Kelly Dahl was a husband and father to three, and passed away suddenly in hospital on September 26, 2016. 
Kelly made a career of working to conserve the natural environment for everyones benefit.  He started as a National Park Warden in Jasper and eventually started as a Conservation Officer in 1986.  Kelly took his role as a protector of our environment passionately, and was instrumental in developing the use of decoys in British Columbia as an enforcement tool and was the first to use this as a method of catching poachers.  Kelly gained a reputation for being so tenacious and determined in the field, he was known as the Conservation Officer that you did not want on your tail.
Kelly and family eventually moved to Kamloops, BC where he became an Industrial Investigator, where he eventually became an Inspector with the Major Investigations Unit with the BC Conservation Officer Service.  Through this role, in 2014, Kelly became the Lead Investigator for the largest environmental investigation ever undertaken by the BC Conservation Officer Service.
During his career, Kelly met and married his wife Camilla in 1997 and became the father to his step daughter Robyn.  Kelly and Camilla later had their daughter Amy and son Jeremy.

The funds raised through this campaign will be used to help support Kellys family through some of the unexpected costs that have resulted from his passing, as well as provide a means for them to celebrate his life and time with them.

Kelly was always an individual who was engaged in his pursuits, and supported those around him.  Now it is time that we all give back to the memory of Kelly, and show how much his support has meant to us. 
Thank you for your contributions, every dollar will help support Kellys family, to share the weight that he held.

I worked with Kelly when he was in Smithers. He was a dedicated conservation officer who was respected by his colleagues in Fish and Wildlife. The fish and wildlife resources in BC were better because of him. He was a valuable member of the Skeena Ironheads hockey team. He will be missed by many! Dana Atagi
