March 11, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Randy Joseph Berkholtz on March 11th, 2019 at Kelowna General Hospital after his brief but courageous fight with Cancer.
Randy was born April 7th, 1981. He lived his childhood in Gibsons BC beside the ocean then moved back as a teenager to the Berkholtz family farm in Armstrong BC where he lived most of the rest of his life until now. He enjoyed sledding, quading, concerts & relaxing with friends & family. He had a very fulfilling work life driving truck for Tabers Services & then OVH Enterprises Inc. Randy will be fondly remembered for his protective supportive ways, his incredible bright blue eyes, his fun loving attitude & his unconditional love for his son.
Randy is survived by his beloved son Adam Berkholtz, the love of his life Michelle Tapp, his mother Janet Collins, his father Ken Berkholtz, his sister Misty Berkholtz & nephew Xavier Abarca, his uncle Edward Berkholtz & cousin Tasha Berkholtz, his best friend Brittany Nicholson & numerous other friends & family.
Our family would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Randy’s doctors and nurses & staff at KGH for your special care & support that was shown to all of us.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1pm on Saturday April 6th, 2019 at the Chapel of Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services (2980 Smith Drive, Armstrong BC).
