March 25, 1934 – January 18, 2021
With great sadness we announce the passing of Virgil Walter Wallin on January 18, 2021 at the age of 86.
Dad was born in Kelvington, Saskatchewan on March 25, 1934 and moved with his family to Penticton, BC in his teens.
He married Shirley Richards in 1956 where they started a family. Dad spent his career in carpentry where he continued to create beautiful work up until his passing.
Dad was an avid outdoorsman and even though his movements were restricted towards the end he continued to reside on his small acreage in Armstrong, BC.
Dad is survived by his wife of 64 years, Shirley, his son Wayne, daughters Lynn, Donna and Wendy, his eight grandchildren and his five great grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother Elroy and sisters Gail and Judy. He is predeceased by his mother Mary, his father Walter, sister Adella and brother Kenneth.
Dad will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Many thanks to the dedicated nurses and doctors at the ICU as well as anyone else who was involved in his care at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.
Dad will be cremated and will return to Penticton to be close to other family members.
Shirley, Sorry to hear of your loss. Virgil was one of the good guys. Hope you're keeping well. Take Care Cheers, darrel
