The family of Shilo (lovingly called “Unc”) is deeply saddened to announce his passing on February 14, 2016. He was a compassionate man and will be so missed. Grieving his loss is sister Bonnie Sacht, niece: Reesha Rorison, nephew: Marshall Hrynyk and grand nephews: Dillon and Mathew Rorison. Shilo’s other sister Regan Kerkpatrick passed away in Duncan, BC on February 13, 2016. Shilo was born in Arborfield, Saskatchewan January 7th, 1940. The family moved to Powell River in 1947 and Shilo grew up in that community. He worked for the BC Provincial Government and eventually moved to Hope where he resided for the last 17 years. Shilo was one of the founders of the Fraser Canyon Hospice Society and sat on the Board for many years. He was very active in the Fraser Canyon Hospital Lodge Courtyard development, and always was ready to plant and take care of the flower beds; as well, Hospice was so grateful to Shilo for his commitment to cleaning and flower watering at the Rest Area. Shilo’s life will be celebrated at a later date. Meanwhile, if you wish, donations in his memory can be made to Fraser Hope Lodge Courtyard Project, c/o Fraser Canyon Hospice Society, 1275-7th Ave Hope, BC V0X 1L4.
