With heartfelt sorrow, we announce the passing of our father and Opa on Thursday, October 19, 2023, at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital, after a brief battle with cancer.

He is predeceased by his wife Bonnie in 2016 and his son Colby in 2021.

Con leaves to mourn his daughter Susan (Charles) Huel, children Tristan and Juliana of Lethbridge, AB, son Kerry and children Kelsea and Max of Jupiter, Florida, and son Patrick (Jenn), children Conner, Kian, and Ailish of Kimberley BC, and Colby's children Orion and Brayden, as well numerous other relatives.
