Victor Lupul

June 8, 1929 - April 29, 2016

Tribute

Dad passed away peacefully at home on Friday, April 29, just shy of 87 years of age.
Vic was born in Edson, AB. He married Jean in Cadomin, AB, and when the coal mines shut down, they made Powell River their new home in 1952 when Vic began working in the mill.
Vic was proud to be part of the volunteer workforce that built the old arena. Hockey was a big part of his life. When Civic Arena was built, he played hockey for Wilshires, then for the original Powell River Regals and Regal Oldtimers. He did not hang up his skates until he was in his 70s.

Vic began coaching minor hockey and refereed when the old arena opened. He was a family man who was involved in all his children's and grandchildren's activities. He travelled all over the world with Jean, enjoyed fishing and especially enjoyed the time spent with his grandchildren.

Family always came first and he played a special role in his grandchildren's lives.
Vic was predeceased by his wife Jean and son Gary. He is survived by his children Terry, Sandra (Brian) and Corey (Gerard), granddaughters Katie and Alexa, grandsons Kevin (Jacaranda), Brendan (Willow), Torry and Blair, great-granddaughter Hazel, his brother Walter, stepbrother Bill and their families.

A special thanks to the palliative care nurses and home support staff; your care was the best.

Thanks to all Vic’s friends, Fairmont Street neighbours old and new, regulars at Strikers and those who chatted with him on his daily visits to the stores and the mall. We wish to thank Powell River Kings and Regals for honouring Dad as the special supporter and fan he was.

Thank you to our friends and neighbours for the food cards, flowers, visits and phone calls. It was heartwarming.

We are honouring his wish that there be no service. Donations in Vic’s memory can be made to Powell River Hospital Foundation at 5000 Joyce Avenue, V8A 5R3, or prhospitalfoundation.com, or to Powell River Minor Hockey Association at PO Box 31, V8A 4Z5.

Dear Terry, Sandra, and Corey,
