Vernon (Vern) FAST

Jan. 6, 1945 – June 16, 2008

Sadly we announce the loss of our beloved husband, father and grandfather. Vern passed away peacefully with family by his side after a year-long battle with cancer. Those who knew Vern will dearly miss his sense of humor, generosity and strength of character. His great love for the outdoors was only surpassed by his love for his family. Vern is survived by his loving wife of 42 years, Helen, his daughter Roxanne (with Christian), his son Rodney (with Clare), and grandchildren Lauren, Gibson and MacKenzie. Vern also leaves behind a large extended family and many long term dear friends. While he was taken from us too soon he will live forever in our memories and hearts. We will be holding a celebration of his life on Saturday, July 5th, 2008 from 2:00 – 4:00pm at the 108 Hills Health and Guest Ranch. We are holding this celebration to remember all of the wonderful moments we have shared over the years. There will be a gathering of family and friends and you are welcome to join in and share your happy memories. If you would like to make a donation in Vern’s memory may we suggest a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society (please specify Lung Research with your donation). Donations can be made online at
