It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Eric Walter Holdsworth of Kamloops BC in the early hours of November 12, 2017.
Loving husband of Marjie for over 66 years, he will be lovingly remembered by his daughters Janice (Barry) and Barb (Ern), and was pre-deceased by his adored son Jason in 1994.
