Vincent Oliver Hasker

Vince was born at a very young age in The Pas, Manitoba and retained much of his childlike joy throughout his 89 years. Vince was a wonderful photographer who loved to sing and especially

to dance. He was a man of many talents who had an

appreciation of all things creative. Imbued with a wonderful sense of humour and a gift for

storytelling, Vince loved to hear other people’s

stories and to share his own. His greatest joy

however, came from being with the people he loved. Predeceased by his wife Marjorie (Bond) &

brother Bryant, Vince is survived by his brother Wallace (Jean), his children – Ann van der Griendt (Hank), Betty Hasker (Glorie), Cyndy Gibson,

Duncan Hasker (Suzanne), 7 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren and by his companion,

Anne Walker. Services were held for the family on May 14th, 2014 in Nanaimo, BC. A celebration of his life will take place at 1:30 PM at the Christ Church –

Anglican on July 17th, 2014 in The Pas. The family would like to thank the staff & residents of Kiwanis

Village in Nanaimo for their kindness and care of Vince, and the ICU staff of Nanaimo General Hospital for their incredible compassion. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Vincent’s name be made to either of these 2 fine facilities. Vince always marched to the beat of his own drum and will be missed.
