Sterling made a career designing and overseeing the manufacturing of wooden roof trusses. He retired from Gang Nail Truss in Prince George, BC in 1993. They settled at beautiful Sunnybrae, BC where Sterling built for his wife their dream home overlooking the Shuswap Lake and the city of Salmon Arm. They were a vibrant part of the Sunnybrae Senior community.

Predeceased by their son, Rod (Joan). He leaves behind his loving wife, Helen; sons Dean (Charis), Bruce (Eileen) and Steven; daughter, Leslie (Dave) Wishart; nine grandchildren and many close friends.

The family would like to thank the great work of Bastion Place for their loving care and attention to Sterling in these last months as he suffered through the final stages of cancer.
