August 11, 1957 – December 30, 2018
It is with great sadness, to announce the passing of Ward Lee Mollison on December 30th 2018 at Penticton Regional Hospital at the age of 61. He is survived by his brother Stewart Mollison and wife Heather. He was predeceased by his father Ward Mollison and mother Flora Mollison.
Lee was born in Penticton and lived in Keremeos his entire life. Lee graduated from Similkameen Secondary School in 1975 and started working shortly after at the packing house as a fork lift operator. Lee also worked alongside his good friend, Grant Crooker as a geologist assistant. Lee loved to snowmobile, camp, fish, cook and bake bread. Lee also loved to swim and tube the Similkameen River. He later moved into Orchard Haven when his health failed.
Lee loved to chat with everyone he met and would sell you the “winning ticket” for the upcoming Orchard Haven raffle. Lee always had a huge smile and a huge heart to match. Lee will be missed by his family, friends, residents and staff of Orchard Haven.
Thank you to the doctors, nurses and care aides of Orchard Haven and Penticton Regional Hospital. Donations may be made to Orchard Haven activities in Lee’s memory.
A Celebration of Life will take place this spring to honour the “Big Fellow”.
