Frank Burton Drysdale

August 6, 1949 - July 7, 2016


Burt Drysdale

1949 – 2016


Burt (Frank Burton) Drysdale passed away unexpectedly in his sleep at home in Nakusp on July 7th, at the age of 66. Beloved husband of Patsy (38 years) and proud father of Jennifer (Jason) and Kris (Agnes), and grandfather (Gaga) to his four precious granddaughters Paytn, Lili, Addalin, and Isabelle.


Burt was born on August 6, 1949 in Truro, Nova Scotia to Elsie Burton and Frank Drysdale. Burt felt blessed to have come from a large family of 7 sisters, and 4 brothers, including many nieces and nephews. He was predeceaced by his father Frank and his sister Joan.


Burt had a life long passion for golf, starting in 1963 as a caddie at Calgary Golf and Country Club and was a member of the CPGA for 42 years . His remarkable golf skills were known widely in western Canada and his playability consistently ranked him on the leaderboard. Those who knew Burt knew his love of the game and his family so it was appropriate that Burt enjoyed his last round of golf at the Nakusp Centennial Golf Club with his family just days before his passing.


The Nakusp Funeral service will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church on Wednesday, July 13th at 10:30am with reception to follow at the Nakusp Centennial Golf Club.


A Calgary memorial will be held on Tuesday, July 19th at 3:30pm at Canyon Meadows Golf & Country Club.


In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Dear Patsy: Just 5 weeks ago, I spoke to Burt. Was so shocked to hear of his passing. He bought his first Weber BBQ from me, then traded it for the red one. He is now in the fairways of heaven, For sure my friend Wayne Simmie, will have a tee time waiting for him. Rest in peace Burt.
