1929 – 2016
Reg Stevenson passed peacefully at East Kootenay Regional Hospital on April 21st, 2016 after a brief struggle with pneumonia.
Born in Maidstone, SK December 23, 1929, Reg moved to BC shortly after high school working in Trail and on Vancouver Island where he eventually met his wife Frances “Frankie” Nelson whom he married in 1958. Reg and Frankie lived in several different towns in the early years of their marriage including Pine Point, NWT and Elkford, BC before settling in Kimberley where he and Frankie raised their family, Wendy and Warren.
Reg is predeceased by his wife Frankie (2003) and is survived by his daughter Wendy Lowe, his son Warren Stevenson (Andrea) and grandson’s Matthew and Liam.
Reg happily volunteered countless hours to the Kimberley Boy Scouts over the past 40 plus years including the caretaking of Camp Stone and annual sandbag fund raising efforts with his dear friend, Ed Purves.
He will be sadly missed by his extended family and many friends. At 86 he never had a sick day in his life until this past month.
Please join us for an informal get together at the Kimberley Elks Club on Friday, April 29th, 2016 at 2:00 pm to tell stories and celebrate a life well lived. In lieu of flowers, donation in honour of Reg can be made to the charity of your choice.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
