“The life and death of each of us has its
influence on others”
Dan Meda passed away in Vernon Jubilee
Hospital, Vernon, B.C., on Thursday,
September 11th, 2014 at the age of 80
Dan was born in rural Saskatchewan in
March 1934, the 3rd oldest of 10 children.
The growing Meda family relocated to the
Lower Mainland, then to Vernon, B.C. At the
age of 20 Dan was married, and moved to
Lac la Hache to start raising his own family.
His work in the logging industry eventually
took him to Prince George. Retirement
from owner/operator of a logging truck
saw Dan return to Lac la Hache, where he
lived at Kokanee Bay for the last 17 years.
Returning to Lac la Hache, allowed Dan to
fully enjoy fishing, hunting, his raspberry
patch and the Hollyhocks growing outside his bedroom window.
Dan leaves to mourn: his three daughters: Rubyanne Meda of Revelstoke,
Diane Meda (Dan) of Cherryville, Jacki (Adrien) Charest of Lavington; and
his son Wayne Meda of Prince George; his stepson, Doug (Sharon) Bryce
of Prince George; his grandchildren: Jason (Bev) and great grand daughter
Sophia Charest of Lumby; Coralee Charest and great grandchildren
Colten and Kristi of Prince George and Kevin Meda of Cherryville; his
step granddaughters: Haylea, Brett and Amber Bryce of Prince George; his
four sisters: Olga, Joan, Pat, and Iris; his three brothers: Bill, Jim, Jack and
their families; plus nieces, nephews, cousins; and his special companion
Jeannine LeBlanc ( and her family) of Williams Lake.
A celebration of life will take place around the Father’s Day weekend and
annual fishing derby at Kokanee Bay in Lac la Hache, B.C. in June 2015.
