August 2, 1950 – January 11, 2017
It is with great sadness that the family of Oliver Gerald Vincel Prouten announce his passing on January 11, 2017 at Campbell River Hospital. He is predeceased by his mother and father and leaves behind to mourn his passing, his loving wife Monique Prouten; sons Vincent Prouten and Tyler Prouten (Lisa); daughters Pamela Hagen (Shane), Melissa Faucher (Brian), Janina Prouten, Angelique Prouten (Colby); grandchildren, Taylor and Nolan Hagen, Noah and Gabriel Faucher, Damien Prouten, Dahlia and Lyndon Peterson; sisters Darlene Connell (Larry), Carol Keen (Al), Deidra Saunders (Glen), as well as many nieces and nephews.
Gerald was a member of the Knights of Columbus. He loved fishing at the pier and the river, playing poker, watching hockey with his dogs in his lap and spending time with his family. He was loving, kind, generous and a very humorous man. He will be missed dearly.
Flowers gratefully declined. Donations in his memory to the Campbell River SPCA 891 13th Ave, Campbell River, BC V9W 4G9, would be appreciated.
A Mass of Christian burial will take place at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church on Saturday, January 28th, 2017 at 11:00 with Father Jan Grotkowski celebrant.
