Alan Pounder, 75, passed September 2nd, in hospital surrounded by family.
Alan is preceded in death by his father Ernest Pounder, mother Mary Ottenbreit, Brothers Marvin and Verne (Linda) Pounder. And survived by his wife Darelene Pounder, sister Marilyn (Mike) Bruno, brothers Lloyd (Carol), and Ernest (Judy) Pounder, daughters Karlene Pounder and Donna Clark, son William Clark, and three grandchildren Stephanie, Brenden, and Keiran Clark.
Alan was born in Nelson BC, but made Kamloops, BC his permanent residence and home. Kamloops is where he met his wife Darlene who he finally married on September 8th after many years together. Alan, like his dad, spent his career working for the railway at CP rail where he worked for 38 years before retiring in 2006. Alan was a soft-hearted man, known for his sentiment, thoughtfulness and unmistakable laughter. Spending his extra time in his younger years tending to the yard work, a small garden, camping and spending time with his wife, children, and grandchildren. Later years finding simple pleasures in playing solitaire, completing word jumbles, crosswords and being an avid reader of the paper. Lover of all holidays, none were ever missed or left undecorated for and the only one to make stuffing for Thanksgiving and Christmas, always being the one to remember everyone’s birthday and making himself known for gifting singing cards. Alan was always close knit with all his loved ones, and will be missed dearly.
Our family would like to thank all of the ICU staff at Royal Inland Hospital for all the care and kindness they provided.
No funeral service will be held at the request of the deceased.Print This Obituary & Condolences
