MR. ANDREW JOHN HILDE went peacefully to be with his Lord and Saviour at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital on Sunday, January 5th, 2003 at the age of 91 years. He was born in Norbo, Alberta on April 12th, 1911. His first wife, Mildred Dorothy, predeceased him in 1962. They had four children: Kathleen, Raynor (who died in 1996), Kenneth and Sharon.
