Gary Thomas Beveridge
Born: September 27, 1935
With deep sadness we announce that Gary Beveridge died unexpectedly, late in the evening on November 9, 2008 after a difficult illness. He is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Margaret, and his two sons Tom (Shirley) and Richard (Erika and Kennedy Rankin). Also mourning his passing are his older sister Gael (Andy Hebenton) and their family. A quiet and reflective man, Gary spent his professional life as an educator and continued to volunteer his time working with children for nearly 10 years after his retirement from the School District in 1999. His passion for helping children was a core part of his being, as was his enduring love for the outdoors. Gary brought us joy with his dry sense of humour and he inspired us with his determination to lead a life focused on human service, even when the physical challenges of his disability made volunteering a significant sacrifice.
Our family wishes to extend our thanks to the many doctors, nurses and community care personnel who cared for Gary during his recent hospitalization. Particular gratitude is extended to Dr. Mavis Hollman, Les Hall and the nursing staffs of 6 South and 3 West who offered tremendous patience and support for Gary and our family. Your kindness and compassion were truly a blessing.
At Gary’s request, there will be no memorial service. Should friends desire to commemorate Gary, donations to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation ( would be gratefully accepted.
You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s on-line memorial register at:

Fattor, Silvano

Tuesday, 04 Nov 2008

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Silvano Fattor on November 4, 2008. He leaves behind with broken hearts his wife, Adelis, his two sons Marco (Sandra) and Davide (Tammy), his four grandchildren, Sasha, Luca, Matteo, Luca, his soon to be born grandson, his mother, Armida, his sister Silvana (Marino) and their daughter, Sara and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Silvano was predeceased by his father Primo.Silvano was a loving husband, father, friend and mentor to many. His four grandchildren were his pride and joy. They were always in his thoughts and in his conversations.
Silvano was born on July 25, 1940 in Duino, Aurisina, Province of Trieste, Italy. He immigrated to Canada in 1975 and moved to Toronto where he continued his trade as a mechanic for Fiat Canada. In 1976 he moved to Vancouver Island where he continued his trade. In 1978 he married Adelis. In 1980 the family moved to Kamloops where he went to work at Torino Motors and later, Franco’s Auto Service. Silvano retired in 2000. While his retirement was well deserved, it also meant that many Kamloops motorists would no longer have their number one mechanic.
Following his retirement, Silvano’s passion for growing grapes, making wine, gardening, raising birds, mushroom picking, fishing and hunting flourished. Nothing pleased Silvano more than sharing his talents, knowledge, and the fruits of his labour with his family and many friends. His reputation as a grape grower, wine maker, and owner of an allegedly noisy peacock often resulted in media recognition. Silvano was often embarrassed by this attention but throughout this he remained humble.
Silvano was an active member of the Colombo Lodge. He was also a member of the Kamloops Wine Association where he served in numerous capacities, including Vice President. While Silvano’s time here was short, he lived a full and complete life right until the time of his passing. Silvano will be deeply missed by all whose lives he enriched…
Prayers will be recited at the Holy Family Church, 2797 Sunset Drive on Monday, November 10, 2008 at 5:00 p.m. The Reverend Father Larry MacLennan will celebrate the Mass of Christian Burial at the church on Tuesday, November 11, 2008 at 11:00 a.m.
