1925 – 2015

Born March 21, 1925, in Samarka, Siberia, Vasily Golin started a quest for freedom as an eight-year-old boy. He traveled with his family through Russia, China, and Australia, before settling down in Vernon in 1972. At 89 years old, he finally finished his life’s journey on January 27, 2015. His passing was very peaceful and he is now resting in the arms of Jesus. He leaves behind his loving wife, Tatiana, to whom he was married for 66 years; his eight children: Lucy, Nina, Henry, Serge, Sophie, Elizabeth, Alexandra, and Vera; 34 grandchildren; and 25 great-grandchildren. He also leaves behind three siblings, Valentin, Tamara, and Luba. His youngest brother, Anatoly, an infant son, Kolya, and two infant grandchildren preceded him and are reunited with him at Heaven’s gates.

Dad, you will be deeply missed, but your legacy will live on for generations.

Funeral services to celebrate Vasily’s life will be held at Bethel Funeral Chapel on Friday, January 30 at 1:00 p.m.
