ARNOLD, Allan G.  
ARNOLD, Allan G. 1947 - 2015 It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart that I mourn the passing of my husband and best friend of 45 years. Allan passed away on May 4th with Cynthia by his side. Apart from his beloved border collies, Allan's lifelong passion was motorcycles. Over a 50 year span, he owned almost every make of bike and toured 3 continents extensively. His motto was "Ride 'Til You Can't". He did just that until he ran out of road much too soon. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to deltahospice.org or arthritisresearch.org Delta Funeral Home (604) 946-6040

Batten, Phyllis M.  
We celebrate the full life of Phyllis Mary Batten, born Murdoch in 1921, the last survivor of four girls born to James G. Murdoch and Irene M. Coade of Brandon, Manitoba. Phyl was a vivacious dancer, a wartime Brandon-trained nurse, who married soldier Gerrard Francis Batten after treating him in a hospital ward in Vancouver, 1946. Mother of Sandra and Paul, Phyl was a fierce and loving mother, an adventurous traveler and aspiring writer, a special aunt to our cousins, and a proud Grandmother. Phyl was a calmly pro-active senior, adjusting her living situations in her older years with the same directness with which she dealt with out-patients in her favourite job: a triage nurse in a hospital emergency department. Phyllis died the same day she was married, May 11, 2015, in the Lynn Valley Care Centre. Phyl is survived by Paul (Carol), Ella and Joffrey; and Sandra, Christa (Chris) and Raisa. Some of her last words were "I want to see my sisters again", and now we trust they are all having tea and a long catch-up chat. We love you and miss you, Phyl

CAMPBELL, Colin Kenneth Kidson  
CAMPBELL, Colin Kenneth Kidson, BSc. (Hon.), LLB (Hon.) On April 28th, 2015, we all lost an amazing and wonderful human being, husband, father, friend, grandfather and gentleman. It was a passing far too early for such a kind and generously devoted family man, with great character and sense of humour. Colin bore his illness with tremendous courage, bravery, strength of mind and a positive outlook. Colin was born in Vancouver, at St. Paul's Hospital, on June 17th, 1945, a true B.C. native. His first four years were spent in Vancouver and West Vancouver, then moving to Edmonton with his family, when his father Kenneth (T.K.) Campbell was transferred by Mr. W. C. Woodward to take over the management of Woodwards in Alberta. Colin is survived by his loving family; wife, Sue; daughter, Paula, her mate Christopher Wong; son, Sean, his mate Marian Marrache; granddaughter, Makena; his aunt, Barbara Clarke; cousin, Bev Haselman and family; cousin, Tony Butler and family. Colin was predeceased by his father Kenneth (T.K.), brother Kevan and mother Pauline. His passion and curiosity for life was evident from a young age and continued throughout his life. His mind was always in high gear. Colin attended Elementary, Junior High and Senior Schools in Edmonton. During the summers of his late teens and early twenties, Colin worked for CFRN Radio and TV, reporting news, doing his own script work, editing and all matters required of him. He attended University of Alberta, graduating with an Honours Science degree in Physics. Upon graduating, he worked for Imperial Oil as a geophysicist. He enjoyed his tenure there and met many wonderful people. Colin then embarked on another pursuit - law, attending University of Alberta and graduating from the Faculty of Law with Honours. Having shoveled the last shovel of snow in March of 1972, he decided to move back to his native land of British Columbia and, with family in tow, settled in West Vancouver. He articled with Boughton and Company and, in 1974, began practicing law in Burnaby until his semi-retirement in late 2012. His love and wonderment of science was matched by his love of sports (he was an accomplished sprinter and Provincial Junior Badminton Champion and Junior Golfer at Mayfair Golf Club in Edmonton), music from jazz, classical, rock and roll to opera, cooking, painting, art, photography, golf, flying in the newest aircraft when travelling and movies. He did a wonderful impersonation of Rodney Dangerfield and all the characters in My Cousin Vinny. He spent many wonderful hours flying his Flight Simulator into airports all over the world and was always exhilarated by the thrill of flying the various planes. He opened doors for others, figuratively and literally, always expanding his horizons and of those around him. Colin was a member of Capilano Golf and Country Club, which he truly considered a privilege. He cherished the friendships made through golf and business and always felt so enriched by their presence. He looked forward to his weekday and his weekend golf games and, more importantly, to those he played with, always coming home with wonderful tales of what he had learned from them all and being so grateful for knowing them. Colin loved all creatures great and small. His eye would catch the most beautiful aspects of nature and life and the camera lens became an extension of his sight, capturing the most remarkable aspects of them both. His images are truly magnificent. He loved "his" hummingbirds that were ever present year round and constantly being nurtured by Colin's special homemade nectar for them. They will miss him! It is said that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. Their delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life's sweetest creation. This epitomizes Colin and his philosophy on life. He encouraged us to think big and visualize positive outcomes. His love for his family knew no bounds. He was our protector, husband, father, friend, and advisor. He treasured and cherished his daughter Paula and son, Sean and was so proud of their accomplishments. His flame may be dimmed, but not extinguished. He will be "Forever Young." Col., Dad, you are a true Renaissance Man! We love, cherish, treasure and honour you. The void is vast as are the wonderful memories. Thank you for your love, Aloha nui loa The family extends heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the large healing circle of health care professionals and friends for the care, love, compassion, encouragement and support you so freely gave to Colin and to us, the family. For all the lovely phone calls, e-mails and beautiful cards, thank you, all are appreciated beyond measure. A Celebration of Life for Colin will be held May 30th, 2015 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Capilano Golf and Country Club, 420 Southborough Drive, West Vancouver. Please note that the dress code at Capilano does not allow any form of jeans/denim or flip flops. Cell phones/electronic devices are also not permitted. Flowers and donations are gratefully declined, instead, please raise a toast to Colin, an amazing man, and wish him calm seas and a following wind.

Coates, Kenneth L. (Ken)  
It is with heavy hearts that Ken's family announces his passing at the Lion's Gate Hospital on Monday May 11, 2015. Ken was born in Moncton, NB and lived in Chipman, NB and Toronto, ON before relocating to North Vancouver, BC. He leaves behind to mourn his loss his much loved son and daughter-in-law Bob and Amanda as well as his eight siblings and their families, many friends at Sailor Hagar's and the Fraternal Order of Eagles - many who knew him as Bubba. A celebration of his life will be held May 18 at 1400hrs at First Memorial Funeral Services (1505 Lillooet Rd., North Vancouver, BC). Because of the importance to Ken of his involvement with the Auxiliary RCMP, donations to the RCMP Foundation is an alternative to flowers, either one are welcomed.
