“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.
