John Victor Fardy
November 7, 1946 - November 7, 2011

Sgt. John Victor Fardy (Retired, CD), of Kamloops, B.C. passed away November 7, 2011 at Royal Inland Hospital, with his family at his side.

John left us on his 65th birthday; for six months he fought with dignity and courage, the fear, pain and confusion associated with lung cancer.

Born in Brigus, NL, he grew up in a large family and left home at age 18 to join the Canadian Armed Forces. In his career of 24 years working as an R.C.E.M.E, radar technician, he served in many areas of Canada as well as Germany. After his military retirement, he worked for 24 years at Kamloops Aviation Fuels, Ltd.

John is survived by his wife of 38 years, Carolynne, his children; son, Greg Fardy (Tanja) of Winnipeg, MB, and daughter, Corrine (Mike) Kehler of Kamloops, BC.

John’s pride and joy were his grandchildren and left to cherish his memory are Morgan Fardy, Danielle Stupar (Jon Stewart), Tristan, Emma, Jaymz and Chris Kehler; also great grandson, Grayson Stupar.

Remembering their brother are his siblings; Pat, Ron (Joyce), Bernard (Brenda), Leonard, Greg (Cynthia), Andrew, Ellen, Mary (Roy), Victor (Roxanne), Joe (Heather), Mena (Dave); also in laws Ivan (Margaret) Purdy, Mavis (Gerry) Erker, Bette (Del) Gray, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, colleagues and friends.

John was predeceased by his parents, Jack and Helen Fardy, brother Larry Fardy, father and mother in law, Henry and Elizabeth Purdy, sisters in law, Marie (Pat) Fardy and Lori Nichol and nephew Keith Erker.

John was an avid stamp collector and spent many happy hours involved with his hobby; he also loved, books, country music and having fun. His Irish-Newfoundland heritage was evident in his accent, sense of humour and sharp wit.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Malan, staff at Royal Inland Hospital, and especially nurse Clint on 6 North for their care, compassion and support during this difficult time. Thanks also to family, friends and colleagues who have supported us by their actions and words.

Though he traveled far and wide in his life, John never truly left his “Newfie” roots and his attachment to “The Rock”. Cremation has taken place; a memorial service will be held in Brigus, NL at a later date.

Melvyn Douglas Ross

and the difference they make in the lives they touch"

On November 10th, 2011 after complications resulting from heart surgery, Mel left this world surrounded by his loving wife, Phyllis, and his family.

Stan M. Young
September 6, 1928 – November 11, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Stan Young. He leaves behind a large family and dear friends who loved him. Stan was predeceased by his loving wife of 52 years, Shirley, (neé Gill). Stan met and married Shirley and together they raised their five children in Smithers, B.C. before retiring to Kamloops, where they enjoyed the local bowling league until Shirley’s passing in 2002.

To cherish his memory are their five children, Brian (Lynn), Allen (Maureen), Gord (Bev), Donalda Crawford (Steve) and David (Jade). Their twelve grandchildren, Aaron, Kelsey, Brienna, Zachary, Taylor Marie, Jacob, Darryl, Katelyn, Tony, Quinn, Shawn, Danielle and two great grandchildren, Morgana and Hayden will miss their Grandpa dearly. Stan will be remembered with fond memories by his friend and companion of over eight years, Rose Williams. They continued bowling as a favoured past time.

Stan was born in Vancouver, B.C. and became very independent and hard working at a very young age. He began working at age fourteen in lumber mills in Terrace, Usk and Pacific B.C., and then finally joined the Canadian National Railway in Smithers, B.C. as a car man where he worked steadfastly for 35 years supporting his family. He was aptly suited to the attention to detail demanded of the job. Away from work, Stan’s workshop was a sanctuary—where he happily maintained his keen sense of mechanics and ability to tinker, mend, fix, improve, and cobble together something from seemingly nothing. He loved to work in his workshop and he could repair anything using his own unique ingenuity.

He will be remembered for his strong work ethic and reliability. He was a man of few words but his sharp wit, easy sense of humor, bright blue eyes and strength of character are the defining characteristics of a man, husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather who will be greatly missed.

At Stan’s request there will be no public service and a private celebration of his life will be held by his family. Flowers are gratefully declined and in so choosing, donations to the Hearing Foundation of Canada and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada may be made in his memory.

Our family wishes to express our heartfelt thanks to Dr. James Howie who cared for Dad for many years with sincerity and grace. As well, thanks to RIH staff for their quality and caring professionalism.
