Wilfred Earl Wilson

December 26, 1950 – January 30, 2014

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Wilfred; husband to Diane, father of Tanya.

Wilfred was born in Vernon and lived most of his life in the Falkland area. He worked in the logging industries for approximately 20 years until his health failed in 1994 due to complications with his lungs, which resulted in a double lung transplant in April 2012. Wilfred was doing very well until he was diagnosed with cancer.

His passion was fishing and hunting; recently with his good friend John Sharp. He was predeceased by his parents Henry and Ruby and twin brother Henry. He is survived by his loving wife Diane; only daughter Tanya; only sister Edna (Dale); and adopted brother Donnie Toewes (Terry) from Alberta.

The family would like to thank all the special staff at Vernon hospital including Dr. William, Dr. Yacyshun, and Dr. Harper.

To those who wish, in lieu of flowers, may make a memorial donation in Wilfred’s name to The Canadian Lung Association (#300 – 1750 Courtwood Crescent, Ottawa, ON K2C 2B5) , the BC Transplant Society (555 W 12th Street, Vancouver, BC V5Z 3X7), or the BC Cancer Society (565 West 10th Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia V5Z 4J4).

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
