April 16, 1933 – May 06, 2020
Wilfred Mallette passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, in his 87th year. Born at a homestead in Star City, Saskatchewan. Wilfred traveled as a young boy with his family to Ontario, eventually settling in St. Catharines. In 1984 Wilfred moved with his own family to B.C. Many years were spent in the Fraser Valley, the last move being to Kamloops, BC in 2007.
Wilfred is survived by his wife Angela, daughters Virginia (James) Bauder, Rebecca Mallette, and granddaughter Alexia Milley; sister Darlene Erdei, and nephews Stevie & John.
A Korean War Veteran, Wilfred became a Cadet Liaison Officer working with air cadet youth programs for many years. He devoted himself to helping others wherever there was a need, and volunteered through Big Brothers. He touched the lives of many throughout his life. He loved to garden and shared this with his family. He had a strong faith in God, and attended the Hills Of Peace Lutheran Church in Kamloops, BC.
Wilfred was dedicated to his family, and very proud of both his daughters and their accomplishments. Wilfred kept current on world news; avidly researched history, and was excited by future space travel for the human race. He was a character with a sense of humour and a dry wit.
Wilfred will be sorely missed by all of us who loved and cared for him.
The family would like to express their thanks and appreciation to the hospital and hospice staff for the loving care Wilfred received in his last days. Cremation to take place as Wilfred wished, with the spreading of ashes and a private family service at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice.Print This Obituary & Condolences
