Wilbert ROWE

ROWE, Wilbert Harry

Feb. 18, 1926 – Dec. 23, 2013

It is with deep sadness that the family of Wilbert announce his peaceful passing at Clayton Heights Care Home, Surrey, BC. He was predeceased by his wife Elsie (1982), parents Harry and Dorothy, brother Jim, great grandson Jayden Lindsay and niece Sharon Leroux. He will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his children Crystal Diane, Dan (Fiona), Darren and Christy (was Kathy), his sisters Ethel Tereposky and Echo Colvin and sister-in-law Shirley Holmes as well as 10 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews, family and friends.

Dad was born in Humbolt Sask, and lived most of his life in Maple Ridge, BC. Dad had many skills. He was a carpenter and ran his own business as a carpet and floor layer. We will remember dad for his love of hockey, square dancing, horseshoes and music. He and his brother and sisters played many instruments by ear, so, fun was held by all at family get togethers.

The family would like to express their appreciation to the Doctors and staff at Clayton Heights for the care and support dad received. A special thank you to Mariette Peacock and especially to Marsali Kidd for the friendship, care and attention you gave to dad. No service by request. Dad’s cremated remains were interred in the Maple Ridge Cemetery.
