Marion   We were so sorry to hear of Dicks passing.  Remember all the good Sunday morning coffee breaks – your house and ours, also Dicks help when Bob was building our house.  Best regards to all of you.      Bob and Eleanor Poland

From: Victoria Fretz

My favorite memories of Dad were of fishing as a kid. I loved being in the boat with him, and if the fish weren’t biting I would say “I think I got one!”, and would reel in my line. After a few times of this Dad would wait until my focus was somewhere else and would give my line a hard tug. “That’s what it feels like when the fish bite!”. 

I love you Dad, and will miss you always.

Our sincere condolences to your family. We remember quite well the good times had in Penticton in the 1960’s.

So sorry to hear of Charles passing away.
Memories of living on Churchill Avenue at the same time and Vicky and Heather being friends. It seems like a long time ago. Churchill Avenue certainly isn’t the same
