George Stanley Deasty

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our father George Stanley Deasty, in Salmon Arm B.C. on November 1, 2011. Stan is survived by his two sons, Peter (Bonnie) of Sorrento B.C. and Michael (Nancy) of Whitehorse, Yukon; three grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren, sister Peggy MacKay and common-law wife Betty Goddard.

Stan was born in Premier, B.C. on September 16, 1931. He spent his childhood around Harrison Mills and Agassiz, B.C. and his younger years logging on the sunshine coast.

He spent 10 years in the RCAF after which he moved his family to Chase, B.C. where he worked at the Adams Lake sawmill for 15+ years. He started wintering in Lake Havasu City, Arizona in the early seventies, where he met his current spouse Betty. Stan collected stamps in the early years and was heavily involved in church activities.

The family would like to send out a very sincere thank you to Dr. Kevin Goldberg and the excellent nursing staff at the Salmon Arm hospital. There was a memorial service held at St. Mary’s Anglican Church in Sorrento on Sunday, November 6, 2011.
