Vernon B. Tuck

July 13, 1934 - December 9, 2019


It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to our beloved husband, father and grandfather.

Vernon was born in Penticton on July 13, 1934.  He had many careers in his life.  He was a ferry worker, truck driver, carpenters apprentice and a commercial fisherman.  Vernon served 2 years in the Scottish Military Brigade enabling him to become a world traveler.

In 1962 he married Gwendolyn Roberts and they moved to Powell River.  It was here he worked in the Powell River Mill until his retirement.  Gwen and Vern had two children Vernon Jr. (1963) and Dianne (Dean) Harris (1966) plus three grandchildren Garrett, Brian and Miranda. Gwen and Vern were married for 57 wonderful years.

He was predeceased by his son Vernon Jr. in 2011.

Vern’s beautiful smile and contagious grin would light up a room.  He loved to tease and would joke with people.  He was a voracious reader and would read two books every couple of days.  Vern loved cards, especially poker, where he would win in significant tournaments.

Dad, “I love you more than 5,000 sockeye.”

Until we all meet again.

Your loving wife and family
