“The life and death of each of us has its influence on others”
Dan Meda passed away in Vernon Jubilee Hospital, Vernon, B.C., on Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014 at the age of 80 years.
Dan was born in rural Saskatchewan in March 1934, the third oldest of 10 children. The growing Meda family relocated to the Lower Mainland, then to Vernon, B.C. At the age of 20 Dan was married, and moved to Lac la Hache to start raising his own family. His work in the logging industry eventually took him to Prince George. Retirement from owner/operator of a logging truck saw Dan return to Lac la Hache, where he lived at Kokanee Bay for the last 17 years. Returning to Lac la Hache, allowed Dan to fully enjoy fishing, hunting, his raspberry patch and the Hollyhocks growing outside his bedroom window.
Dan leaves to mourn: his three daughters: Rubyanne Meda of Revelstoke, Diane Meda (Dan) of Cherryville, Jacki (Adrien) Charest of Lavington; and his son Wayne Meda of Prince George; his stepson, Doug (Sharon) Bryce of Prince George; his grandchildren: Jason (Bev) and great-grand daughter Sophia Charest of Lumby; Coralee Charest and great-grandchildren Colten and Kristi of Prince George and Kevin Meda of Cherryville; his step granddaughters: Haylea, Brett and Amber Bryce of Prince George; his four sisters: Olga, Joan, Pat, and Iris; his three brothers: Bill, Jim, Jack and their families; plus nieces, nephews, cousins; and his special companion Jeannine LeBlanc (and her family) of Williams Lake.
A celebration of life will take place around the Father’s Day weekend and annual fishing derby at Kokanee Bay in Lac la Hache, B.C. in June 2015.
