Louis Wesley Croaker
The unspoken bond of a families love changed today, as our husband, father, grandpa, great grandpa, brother, and friend, made this way to ‘THE CABIN” today after a lengthy battle and a hard fight to get there. He is at peace and hopefully approving the new outhouse and the other changes since his last visit.
He leaves his loving wife of 55 years and very best friend Arlene Croaker, his children Lloyd (Sandi) Croaker, Steven (Sharon) Croaker, Shannon (Len) Verwey, his granddaughters Randee (Les) Wenninger and Amanda (Kniven) Cadden.
Three great grandsons Paxton, Isaiah and Finnigan and a great grandchild yet to arrive soon.
Two step granddaughters, Leah and Kristen and one step great granddaughter Abigale, and one step great grandchild also to arrive soon.
Louis was pre deceased by his parents and all his siblings except for one sister DeEtta Smith.
Louis was born in 1928 in Matsqui B.C. where he continued to live until he entered the workforce, working various jobs before settling in the Northern Interior, where he met married his best friend Arlene and together they raised their three children.
Retiring to the Armstrong area, he soon realized he couldn’t sit still. A hobby farm was the answer, taking the veggies to the various farmers markets became a passion for him. When time permitted he would spend it at “The Cabin” building and constructing with his best friend, family and friends. Dad’s passion for nature was always apparent from the welfare of the wildlife to simply enjoying the outdoors. With the memories of laughter and a legacy of stories, Lou (Wes) will be always be remembered and missed by all and never far from the hearts of his family.
A special Thank You, to the staff at Parkview Place, for their care and attention to Louis. Special Hugs, to Ursula, Loree, and Dr. Annan.
