Eric Mellander

Eric John


was born on August 28th, 1932 in Vancouver, B.C. and passed away on August 30th, 2012 in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital, just two days after his 80 birthday.

Eric will be lovingly remembered by his twin sister, Greta (Vern Halverson) Richter of Vancouver, B.C.; one step-sister, Louise Berg of Madeira Park, B.C.; one niece, Corinne (Benno) Bucher of Delta, B.C.; and one nephew, Lyle Richter of New Westminister, B.C.

Eric was a long time resident of Vernon and worked as a land surveyor with Russell Shortt for many years. He was a very private man and yet was one who was very helpful in assisting those in need.

In respecting Eric’s wishes, he was cremated and a private gathering will be held at a later date in Vancouver, B.C. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Eric to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, 2101-32nd Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 5L2.

Cremation arrangements have been made with


5605-27th Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 8Z5
