Roland Webb, 1975 – 2013

Lorne Clare, 1930 – 2010
Judge Lorne Patterson Clare was an early member of Coquitlam Search and Rescue, and was instrumental in formalizing the society as a charity, as well as an active field member. He enjoyed boat operations, and handling communications. He is fondly remembered by several current members of the team as having recruited them, and for his community mindedness, and desire to “give back”.
David Timewell, 1956 – 1992
Dave Timewell was a very active member of the team. The Timewell family have been staunch supporters of Coquitlam SAR for many years, consistently donating money to assist us. The Timewell Hut on Burke Mountain is named in his honour.
