John "Jack" Annand Botham


Passed away peacefully with daughter Penni and son-in-law Jack by his side on Saturday, August 17, 2013 at the age

of 82.  Survived by his loving wife Lois, daughter Penni (Jack) May, grandsons Tim (Norma Jean) May, Rusty

(Lindsay) May and their families, his sister Iris Snook

and many dearly loved nieces and nephews. 

Sadly predeceased by his brothers Mick and Glen

and sister Frankie.  Dad was born in Moose Jaw, SK on

November 17, 1930 and moved with his family to Kelowna in the 1940’s, graduating from KSS in 1948. His life

long career was with the Ministry of Environment as an

engineering technician. Dad’s passions were basketball

and golf and he was a member of the Kelowna Golf and Country Club for over 40 years. Mom and dad happily

spent their winters months living in Kaui. Dad was madly

in love with my mom and remained her dedicated and

loving companion for 49 years. To me, he was an amazing father and I will miss him every day. He was also a fun

loving uncle and a true friend.  Jack and I would like to

extend special thanks to the staff at Interior Health,

KGH and Brandt’s Creek Mews, including Krystle,

Dr. Eliason and Dr. MacKenzie for their kindness

and exceptional care of Dad. 

At his request there will be no service. 

“I love you more, Dad.”
