It is with sadness in our hearts that we announce the passing of Andrew George West after a short battle with cancer at the age of 74. He passed away peacefully at Moog & Friends Hospice in Penticton.

Andrew worked for Revenue Canada for 25 years before retiring. He was an avid stamp collector. He also enjoyed fishing and camping and travelling with his wife. Andrew also like to make people smile.
