Roger Donald Joseph MacPherson
March 18, 1939 - May 10, 2010

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that the family of Roger MacPherson announces his sudden passing on May 10, 2010 at the age of 71.

Roger was born in 1939 in Edmonton, Alberta to Angus and Winnifred MacPherson who settled in the St. Brides, Alberta area after they immigrated from Scotland and Ireland respectively in 1927. Roger is the eldest brother of four, survived by his brother Russell (Pat) MacPherson and his sister Shirley (Bill) Garnier. He is pre-deceased by his mother, father and brother Ronnie (Pauline) MacPherson.

As a heavy equipment operator in the construction industry, Roger traveled throughout much of BC and AB working on many historic highway and infrastructure projects. His family camped in the summer seasons to be near him as he helped build roads into new towns or create new wetland areas for protected wildlife. He was a participant in the rescue operation for the Grand Duke Mine disaster in 1964 and fondly remembers being able to pull out a survivor buried deep in the snow with his equipment.

In 1966, Roger married Shirley Morin of Progress, BC and raised three children over their 43 years together. Darren and his wife Breonna and daughter Keely live in Vernon, BC. Darcy and his wife Mandy live in Calgary, AB with their sons Jack and Charlie. His daughter Heather lives with her husband Jason McKeown and their three sons Aiden, Duncan and Roan in Airdrie, AB.

Roger was known for his relaxed, humour filled, easy-going attitude. In reflection of his personality, an informal Celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, May 15, 2010 between 11:00 am and 2 pm in the Kamloops Funeral Home Tea Room, 285 Fortune Drive.

Those who desire may make memorial donations in memory of Roger to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 203-635 Victoria St., Kamloops BC V2C 2B3.

He is survived by his wife Molly, daughters Julie (Chris) and Carly (Claude), grandchildren Dylan (Victoria), Amber (Corey), Taylor and Logan, and great grandson Miller.

Andy was born in Berlin Germany in 1932. He immigrated to Canada in 1955. He travelled along the West Coast and settled in Ocean Falls BC. It was there that he met Molly, his wife of 52 years. A painter by trade, Andy worked at Crown Zellerbach for the 10 years they resided in Ocean Falls. Andy and Molly had three children- Errol, Julie and Carly. The family had a wonderful life there but after the devastating avalanche in 1964, they moved to Kamloops BC.

Andy worked at Weyerhaeuser Pulp Mill for 31 years, a “Day 1’er.” His life was filled with family and friends. Andy enjoyed landscape painting, the shooting range, and painting the homes of family and friends. After retiring, Andy looked forward to Monday coffee with his retired “mill buddies.”

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Yanko and Andy’s wonderful friends, Rolf, Stuart and Sam.

Trevor Earl Schubert
February 4, 1922 - May 29, 2010

Trevor Earl Schubert passed away peacefully on May 29, 2010 in Kamloops at the age of 88. He is survived by his loving wife Jean, children Carol (Pat) Cooney of Armstrong, Marion (John) Kinch of Torksey, England, and Ken (Shelley) Schubert of Calgary, AB, his grandchildren, Erin Cooney (David Laferriere) of Vancouver, Ryan Cooney of Victoria, Samuel Schubert-Kinch of Torksey England, and Kimberley Schubert of Kelowna, sisters Shirley Ehlers of Salmon Arm, Audrey Alcock of Vancouver, and Norma Peterson of Vernon, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother Bert during World War II and by his parents in the early 80’s.

Trevor was born February 4, 1922 in Armstrong to Gladys and Augustus Schubert. His great grandparents, Catherine and Augustus Schubert, were part of the Overlanders that arrived at Kamloops after an epic journey from Fort Garry (now Winnipeg) in 1862. After Trevor graduated from high school in June 1941, he volunteered with the Royal Air Force and then later Royal Canadian Air Force, completing 2 tours (45 missions) with Bomber Command. While on leave in August 1944, Trevor married Jean Emeny of Enderby. Following WWII, his career spanned over 30 years working for BC Treefruits in Kelowna, Hospital Insurance in Vernon and from 1954 to 1981 for the Provincial Sales Tax Office in Kamloops.

Having grown up on the family farm Trevor enjoyed the outdoors, especially fishing. He also enjoyed the challenge of carrying out a wide variety of do-it-yourself projects. He will be remembered as the family historian having extensively researched and documented the Schubert family tree.

Throughout his life, his sense of humour and love of his family prevailed.

Trevor was always a man of principle and honour, a true gentleman.

The family is extremely grateful for the support and ongoing care by the exemplary management and staff at Berwick on the Park over the last few years. The family also wish to extend their gratitude to Doctors Schumacher and Wiedrick for their long-term care and to the 6 North staff at Royal Inland Hospital more recently.

Celebration of Life Service will be held at 1:30 pm on Friday June 4, 2010 at Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops. In lieu of flowers, donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
