Myles Vincent Materi

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our beloved son, husband, father, brother and uncle on Thursday, May 30, 2013 at the age of 46 years.

Myles was born on May 16, 1967 in Salmon Arm where he spent most of his life. He resided on his farm where he divided his time between his two passions his chickens and his shop. Myles always found time to visit with a friend, tell or hear a joke, or lend a helping hand wherever he could. He enjoyed going to the theatre and taking in the latest science fiction or action movie with his friend and was rarely found without some form of music playing.

Myles will be deeply missed by his wife Laverna, his two children Marissa and Anthony, his mom and dad Lois and Rick, his brother Brent (Crystal), his father-in-law Rene, brother-in-law Brian (Elsie), brother-in-law Greg (Karen), sister-in-law Lorette, nephews Steven, Allan, Justin, Riley and nieces Chelsea, Kathryn, Leah, Kristen, his aunt Marjorie, dear friends James and Vince and many others.

Myles was predeceased by his grandparents Dave and Anne Wilson from whom he developed his love of chickens and farming. He was also predeceased by his mother-in-law Gail.

A casual drop in tea in memory of Myles was held on June 3, 2013 at Fischer’s Funeral Home.

Memorial donations in lieu of flowers may be send to the Vancouver Humane Society CHICKEN OUT! program, #303-8623 Granville Street, Vancouver, B.C. V6P 5A2.
