We loved a great man. A husband, father, papa, brother, son, cousin, uncle and a deeply cherished friend. He loved us all, and we loved him.
He was raised in Medicine Hat, started his family with Yvonne in Lethbridge, and moved to Salmon Arm with Yvonne, Michelle and Michael in 1987. His grandchildren, Seth, Ethan and Evan (Michael and Valene) and Keira and Ryder (Michelle and Corey Spence) put a sparkle in his eye and kept him young and vibrant!
We have comfort in knowing that he lived his life with joy and had many wonderful memories with family and friends. A friendly and social man, he made friends wherever he went and impacted them all. His welcoming smile, strong yet so gentle hands, and warm embrace meant so much.
He passed doing one of his most favourite things, snowmobiling, which he enjoyed with many friends and family in Salmon Arm. He had a great day on the mountain! Who would have known that in a split second he would be gone.
We will think fondly back on our memories and celebrate his life on Saturday, May 3rd at 2PM at Bower’s Funeral Home. A gathering will follow.
