Roy Stearns


Passed away with family

by his side on Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at the age

of 86. Survived by his loving son Ricky, five grandchildren Liesle Young, Jason Stearns (Ali), Brandon Stearns, Ryan Vandendyk (Erin), Kyle Dyck, great grandson Caleb,

sisters Lila Rath, Dorothy

Anderson and numerous

nieces and nephews. Sadly predeceased by his wife

Elizabeth (Beth) and his daughter Lynn Dyck.  We give thanks for the time we all

had with him and will miss him greatly. He was always a regular at any of our sporting events and could always be heard giving us encouragement and advice. He had

passion for his business in construction, where he built many houses and subdivisions in the community of

Rutland. He loved walking, covering miles every day,

loved playing golf and loved taking long drives to see all

the houses he had built and all the new developments in town.  Dad took great pride in all that he did and we are

glad he is at peace now.  We will never forget his

enduring love and support in all we did. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at 10:00 am

at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road,

Kelowna, BC.  Interment to follow in St. Theresa’s

Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may

be made to Cancer Centre for the Southern Interior,

399 Royal Avenue, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 5L3.
