1943 ~ 2015

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Neil Postle at his farm in Cherryville, BC with his loving wife Shirley by his side on December 10, 2015. He was born May 31, 1943 in Kelowna, BC. Neil enjoyed farming, hunting, fishing, boating on the ocean, flying and building airplanes. Neil, Shirley and their two children Geoff and Christie moved to Cherryville in 1976. He worked as a computer technician for the Attorney General across BC. After a few years of long distance travelling, Neil decided to renew his pilot’s license and build his own airplane. He then flew into remote places in northern BC, fixed their computers and flew home. Neil was a man of many talents building his own home, airplanes and camper. He had a favourite saying, “Somebody built this, so can I, only better”. Neil loved life and lived it to the fullest. He loved being a “Papa” to his five grandkids and was extremely proud of his son Geoff’s accomplishments in the Air Force and his daughter Christie’s career as a teacher. Many will miss him. Neil will be forever loved and his memory cherished by his wife Shirley to whom he was married for forty-nine years, son Geoff (Erin) and daughter Christie (Todd) and grandchildren: Calla, Tyler, Sydney, Jessica and Jared. He is further survived by his sisters Sherrie (Richard) Jamieson and Arlene (Dan) MacLeod. A Celebration of Neil’s Life will be held at 1:00 pm, Saturday, December 19, 2015 at Vernon Christian Fellowship (4506 – 29th Street, Vernon, BC).
