In Loving Memory ~

It is with deep sadness that the family of Earl Bradford Mander announces his peaceful passing in the Powell River General Hospital at the age of 87.

Born in East York, Ontario, Earl and brothers Harry, Charles and Ross moved to BC early in childhood. Earl later had two half-sisters Diane and Carol.

Earl raised his family and managed BC Liquor stores in Coquitlam, Cache Creek, Keremeos, and Texada Island. Earl was an avid volunteer for many years at the Keremeos Elks Rodeo.

He began a tradition of aviation that spanned generations, including his son and grandson. Earl loved music, playing his trumpet, and listening to his vast record collection.

Earl leaves to grieve his daughters Lynn (Dana), and Lara (Dean), son Lance (Connie), nine grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.

Earl was predeceased by his son Shane and wife Dolores.

The family would like to thank Dr. Black and the staff at the Texada Island Health Centre for their kindness with Earl's care.

In accordance with his wishes, there will be no funeral service. Friends and family are encouraged to lift a glass in Earl's honour to celebrate his life and share their memories.
