Robert Michael Latta
1928 – 2007
It is with great sadness we announce that Robert “Mike” Latta passed away peacefully in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital on Wednesday, March 21, 2007 (the first day of Spring) at the age of 78 years with his family by his side. Mike is survived by the love of his life for 55 years, wife Emily; his son Stephen (Brenda); daughter Diane (Tim); daughter Nancy; nine grandchildren – Nicola, Luke, Nathan, Emily-Sarah, Mackenzie, Riley, Rachel, Axel and Erica; numerous nieces and nephews; and more friends than he could count. Mike will certainly be missed by his fellow staff at Predator Ridge, where he served as marshal/starter for twelve years.
The family would like to thank the nursing staff in the ICU at Vernon Jubilee Hospital for their wonderful and kind care during his last days.
A celebration of Mike’s life will be held Tuesday, April 3 at 2:00 P.M. at Calvary Community Church, 1205 Rogers Way, Kamloops, B.C. Memorial donations may be made in Mike’s memory to the B.C. Lung Association, P.O. Box 34009 Station D, Vancouver, B.C. V6J 9Z9 or the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, 2101-32nd Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 5L2.
