Floyd Henry READMAN

READMAN, Floyd Henry, passed away peacefully Friday, December 31, 2010 at the age of 88. He is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Frances; his sons, Lorne (Elizabeth), Floyd (Marlene), Brian (Lauren), his 7 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Floyd was born in Gravenhurst, Ontario. He joined the army (when he was underage) and served 5 years in Europe during WW11. After his honourable discharge in 1945, Floyd travelled to Fort St. John where he met his future wife, Frances, who was waiting to welcome home her twin brother, Frank from the war. They were married in 1946 and remained in Ft. St. John working and raising their children until all three sons moved from the family home.

At that point they decided it was time to relocate to Kelowna, the site of many happy family vacations, and eventually settling in Westbank.

Floyd was an amazing father and husband who could always be counted on at every turn of the road by both family and friends. It is with heavy hearts that we bid him farewell. He will be missed, forever loved and remembered by all who knew him.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, January 7, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at the Westbank Lions Community Centre, officiated by Zone Chaplain Ron Watson. Donations in Floyd’s memory may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 288. Messages of condolence may be sent to hansonswb@shaw.ca . Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Hanson’s
