Wilbur (Wilf) Forshner

born October 10, 1919 in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, Wilf passed away February 18, 2016 at the age of 96. He is predeceased by his wife Audrey (Chic) in 2001 and his 8 siblings.

Wilf is survived by his children: Maureen, Joy (Al), Harley (Karen), Scott (Debbie), his grandchildren, Jason, Colleen, Erin (Dale) Minifie, Sean, Steven Mickelson, Nancy (Justin) Brown; Jennifer (Austin) Delgarno, Sean Forshner and Emily; as well as 8 great grandchildren.

Our Dad was a World War II veteran. He then worked, as his career, in the logging industry throughout B.C. After retirement Dad and Mom had many motor home holidays and trips to Hawaii.

Dad became an avid golfer, with golfing holidays to Palm Springs and a special trip to Scotland.

He was a member of Westwood Plateau and Morningstar golf courses.

Thank you to the staff at Dover House for the care and compassion they gave to our Dad in the last 4 years of his life.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to B.C. Children’s Hospital, in memory of Wilf, would be appreciated.

Private celebration of life will be held at a later date.
