RICHARD LOFSTOM

Richard Lofstrom
"Dick"
August 30, 1936 - March 10, 2013

It is with deep sadness we announce Richard passing peacefully at home with his wife and friends by his side.

Richard led a long and happy life. He was a kind and gentle man with great zest for life. He had a wonderful dry sense of humour that made everyone laugh. He was extremely fond of children and dogs.

Richard spent over 50 years working underground, 35 1/2 years for Teck Cominco. He loved mining, gold panning, carpentry, camping, music and spending his time with his wife, family, friends and his special companion Max.

He is survived by his beloved wife Carolyn "Carly", brother Jim (Jean), sister-in-law Anne, all his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, all of whom he loved dearly. He is also survived by a large loving extended family and many wonderful long-time friends.

At Richard's request, there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honour Richard may do so by making a memorial donation to either the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation, 938 - 28th Avenue West, Vancouver, British Columbia, V5Z 4H4 or the East Kootenay S.P.C.A., Box 2, Cranbrook, British Columbia, V1C 4H6.
