PHINNEY, Bergan Leslie
November 3, 1920 – August 4, 2014
It is with our deepest sadness to announce the passing of Bert Phinney (Uncle Bert to many!). Bert proudly served in the Canadian Army 1939 – 1945 in England, France, Holland, Belgium and Germany in the Artillery Division. A proud member of The Lions Club 42 years and The Royal Canadian Legion 60 years, Elks Club 55 years, and the Masons 50 years. Was well known in the Lath and Plaster and Construction Industry "for years". Gardening was his #1 passion and what a great bounty he grew, enjoyed golf in the early years, many years a very avid curler and represented BC in the Brier Championship. Oldest of 7 children Bert, Elgin, Norman, Jean, Clinton, Milton, Minta. Survived by his loving wife Lila of 68 years, son Garry (Linda), daughter Bonnie (Charlie) granddaughter Lisa, great-granddaughter Brianna, great-grandson Daniel. Bert would say "Don't mourn me now, I've lived a life worthy of celebration." "Good crops ahead Dad!" In our hearts forever! No service by request. Condolences may be offered at
