Sid Segal

Funeral for community leader

Funeral and memorial services planned for Sid Segal of Kelowna, a past president of the Okanagan Jewish Community.

A funeral service for Sid Segal, a former president of the Okanagan Jewish Community, will be held on Sunday, Nov. 8, 1 p.m., at the Lakeview Memorial Gardens, 2850 Dry Valley Rd.

A reception will follow at the Okanagan Jewish Community Centre, 102 Snowsell St. North.

A celebration of life for Segal will also take place Monday, Nov. 9, noon to 2 p.m., at The Harvest Golf Club, 2725 KLO Rd.

Segal, a Kelowna resident, passed away on Nov. 4 at the age of 63. In the words of a close friend of his, “(Sid) was small in stature, but a giant of a man in spirit, and his heart and soul were to be envied.”

His life journey began in Winnipeg, where he grew up with his late sister Ronda Schwartz and his now deceased parents Elsie and Gilbert Segal.

From Manitoba, Segal moved on to Regina where he pursued his career as a lawyer and was an active member for 25 years with the Regina Rotary Club.

It was there he met and married his wife Cindy and started a family with their children Alissa and Mitchell.

At the age of 49, Segal retired to Kelowna, where along with boating and golfing, he volunteered a great deal of his time to the Okanagan Jewish Community Centre and to other community activities.

Said another of his friends: “Sid absorbed all of the light and warmth the life had to offer.”

Donations in Segal’s memory can be made to the Okanagan Jewish Community, 102 Snowsell Rd. North, V1V 2E2, or the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation, 2268 Pandosy St., Kelowna, v1Y 1T2.
