Some shipmates, depot and office staff who have "crossed the bar" are listed in no particular order here. The underlined names have a link to a newspaper clipping or other detail.
As with any list of this sort, there will be some names which have been missed. Please email me and I'll see they are added.
Those who died while on duty in this region are especially remembered. While rare, it happens. Tom Shelby of Saltspring Island was a member of the Bull Harbor Lifeboat and perished in 1989 while on a mission. His story here.
There is a national memorial dedicated to the Coast Guard members who died on duty. There are a surprising number of names on it. Open the list. The memorial is on the grounds of the CG College.
Two volunteer members of the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue, Angie Nemeth and Beatrice Sorensen, drowned when their ridged hull inflatable Zodiac Hurricane fast rescue craft flipped in 2012 while transiting Sechelt Rapids. TSB report here.
