On December 11, 2010, Jacob (Jake) Reimer passed away at Polson Multi-Care Centre in Vernon, B.C. He was 85 years old. Jake was born in Russia and immigrated with his family to Canada as a baby. They moved to Vernon from Drumheller when he was 8 years old.
Jake was pre-deceased by his brothers Fred & Harry.
His is survived by his twin sister, Tina Beck (Vernon), older sister Mary Smith (Vancouver), his wife Eleanor, children Stewart, Elaine, Rob, Jackie (Boyd), Geri and grandchildren Jebb, Dustin and Toni.
Farming was one of the most important things in Jake’s life. In the early years he also co-owned and operated “Reimer Bros” Logging with his brother Harry.
He loved working hard all day on the farm and also loved getting together with his friends and family. Over the years he had varying interests starting with trapshooting, “Happy Hoofbeats” (gymkhana fun), hauling his kids to horse shows, horseshoe pitching, poker night and lastly with the Spallumcheen Pioneer Power Club (antique tractors).
He lived the life he chose to live. We will miss his smile.
A celebration of life to be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers donations to the charity of your choice.
