HALFORD, Patrick
December 27, 1941 - June 12, 2014
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of a husband, brother, father, grandfather, grandfather-to-be (July 2014) and our very best friend. A lifelong Vancouverite, Pat was born at St. Paul's hospital and passed away surrounded by his loving family. Pat is survived by Karla, his wife of 37 years; son Mike, daughter-in-law Brook and grandson Grayson; son Tommy, daughter-in- law Melissa and pending grandchild "Trunk"; brother Quinn and partner Rob, and brother-in-law Mike Reilly. Also surviving Pat are his mother-in- law Elsa, sister-in-law Karel, niece Katelyn and nephew Kevin. Pat graduated from Kits High and UBC, spent his professional career working at B.C. Tel and plenty of his non-professional career on the rugby pitch as a longtime Meraloma, Old Boy and Legend. His true life's work, though, was his family -"my masterpiece." Celebration of Life will be held at Burnaby Mountain Golf Course on Sunday, June 22 at 12 o'clock noon. Flowers gratefully declined; in lieu of flowers, donations to the B.C. Cancer Foundation (bccancerfoundation.com) in Pat's name are greatly appreciated. Condolences may be left online at bellburnaby.com.
