A memorial service for Eric Bysouth, who died on Saturday, Oct. 12, at the age of 88, will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3.

The service is set for Sharon United Church in Murrayville, at the Five Corners. It will begin at 2 p.m. The family is asking friends and people who knew Mr. Bysouth from his many involvements in Langley to attend.

They are calling it a celebration of his long and fruitful life. A reception will be held afterwards.

Mr. Bysouth is survived by his wife of 66 years, Helen, sons Randy (Diana), Kerry (Marilyn), and daughter Brenda (John). He is also survived by five grandchildren, Miranda (Tim), Niki (Shaun), Adam, Robin (Tanya) and Theo, along with two step-granddaughters, Valerie (Craig) and Janet (Bob). There are also four great-granddaughters, Brenna, Daphne, Noelle and Avery and four step great-granddaughters: Breanne, Chelan, Terri and Susan.

He is also survived by his sisters Doris, Audrey and Phyllis, brothers Chris and Bob, and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Dr. Clifford Allen, the staff of Harrison Landing, Langley Memorial Hospital, and Zion Park Manor for their kind and considerate care.

Bob Bowles, who is a grandson by marriage, said the family is now finding out about many of Mr. Bysouth’s varied activities in the community.

He asks that anyone who has a story they would like to share with the family contact them by email at erenb@shaw.ca.

Those who wish to make donations can direct them to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, in Mr. Bysouth’s memory.
