VOSPER, George Richard “Dick”

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of George Richard Vosper on October 21st, 2012 in Heron Grove at the age of 82.

George was born in Vernon in 1930 and lived his life locally and as close to the earth as possible. In his young days, he had his own small sawmill in Cherryville and on many occasions the crew said that Dick (as he was fondly known) was one of the best employers ever. He made friendships that truly lasted his entire life. Middle years were spent providing for his family, be it driving logging truck for Hector LeBlanc or working at Dyck’s garage. You could always count on seeing Dick walking around town in later years.

He is survived by his sons: Dale (Kari), Dennis and Kelly; grandchildren, Violet, Clayton, Kevin, Lindsey and Ryan; numerous great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews. George was predeceased by: his mother Minnie; father Frank; brothers: Lou, Frank and Jack; and sister Beryl. He was the last one in his family. He ran a good race and is now at peace. George will be greatly missed.

A family celebration of life is to be held at a later date.
