Craig Anthony Mould
August 6, 1976 - February 4, 1999
Just when your life was brightest,
Just when your years were best,
You were called from this world
of sorrow
To a home of eternal rest.
Marjorie, Mike and Mark would like to extend thanks to the many friends and neighbours who provided comfort and support. DEERING - E.K. (Klaus). Passed away peacefully on February 17, 1999 at the age of 75.
He is survived by his loving family: wife Helen; children Glenys (Lynn) Deering-Robb. Rosalyn (Troy) Manthorpe, Kathleen (Gene) Wallace-Deering, and Ken (Marianna) Deering; and granchildren Alexandra and Nicholas Manthorpe and Anna, Eric and Karl Wallace-Deering. He is also remembered by sister Lena Spitz, brothers Rudy and Bob Deering and was predeceased by brother Erwin.
Born on Valentine's Day in 1924 in Gilbert Plains, Manitoba, Klaus grew up near Swan River, Manitoba. In 1941, he enlisted in the Canadian Army and served with the Survey Corps in Europe during World War II. He returned in 1946 to West Vancouver where his parents had moved while he was overseas.
Klaus and Helen celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary in 1997. They had known each other since childhood. After Klaus' return from overseas a romance blossomed.
Klaus began his long and varied business career in logging with his father, Sandy and brothers, Rudy and Erwin. Other ventures included Plexolilte Plastics. In 1969, he joined Glenayre Electronics as the fourth employee. As President he led the company into the fledgling wireless communication market with the introduction of the GL1400 mobile phone in 1974. Glenayre went on to become a technological leader in mobile phones and radio paging systems. In 1987 he retired from Glenayre as President and CEO and in 1990 as a Director. He was very proud of his accomplishments and teamwork of the staff at Glenayre which enabled it to become one of the largest high tech companies in B.C. While always modest about his own contribution, his legacy is that Glenayre has 70% of the world's market in radio paging switches with installations in almost every country.
His entrepreneurial expertise as well as his honesty and integrity were highly respected. His drive and determination were hallmarks of both his personal and business life.
While at Glenayre, Klaus was an active member of the Premier's Advisory Council of Science and Technology to advance the high tech industry in B.C. In 1991, he received a citation from the Premier for his long standing contributions. Klaus received, in 1988, the William Thompson Commemorative Award for Entrepreneurship jointly given by the Province of B.C. and the B.C. Technology Industry Association.
In retirement Klaus became an enthusiastic golfer in the company of his wife and friends.
A memorial service and reception will be held at St. Stephen's Anglican Church located at 885-22nd Street, West Vancouver on Tuesday, February 23, 1999 at 2:00 p.m.
