Walker, Barry C.  
After a long journey following a cancer diagnosis three years ago, Barry passed away Friday morning, May 1. He was at home in bed, in peace, with the love of his family around him and the knowledge of the warmth and caring of dear friends. Barry loved life. Among the many things that gave him joy were running, backpacking, hiking, kayaking, skiing, cycling, sailing, travelling, and spending time with his family. He was a passionate teacher who cared deeply about sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm for learning about the world. It gave him great joy to see this reflected in students. Barry loved to share his passion for the outdoors with students through backpacking trips to Mount Albert Edward and Cape Scott and trips with the ski and snowboard team; highlights for many students. He took great pleasure in meeting ex-students and learning about how their lives had progressed, whether through studies, traveling, working, or raising a family. Thank you to all those kind students who over the many years, either in word or in spirit, expressed their appreciation of Mr. Walker. Barry was a warm, caring, and steadfast friend. Friends recall his strength of character, energy, gentleness, generosity and enthusiasm for life. Barry was also unafraid to speak his mind, to disagree firmly with others, and to fight with determination for what he believed in. Barry loved his two sons dearly and was greatly saddened to realize that he would not have the opportunity to discover where their unique skills and personalities would take them in their adult life. He was exceptionally proud of his sons, for their bright curiosity, their independent spirits, and their acceptance of individual differences. He died confident that they each will find their own route to happiness and fulfillment. Our family is blessed to live in such a beautiful caring community. The expressions of caring and support from friends, family, neighbours, students both past and present, and Isfeld school in particular, were overwhelming. We thank the many kind nurses, support staff, and doctors who went out of their way to provide more than just medical care, but to support Barry with dignity as an individual. Of particular note are Drs.: Carol Ostry, Trace Thomas, Rocky Moise, and Barb Fehlau, who each in their individual way provided medical expertise and advice while also extending themselves personally to support both of us emotionally throughout treatment, and especially near the end of Barry's life. Barry's sense of humour and his wonderful smile will be missed dearly. Barry was predeceased by his father (John). He is survived by his mother (Alice), his wife (Cathy Cook), his children (Colin and Tom Walker), his sister (Lynn) and his nephews (Greg Field, Jared Hills, and Adrian Walker). In lieu of flowers, donations to the Comox Valley Hospice Society are welcomed.

West, Keith A.  
Keith was born in Girvan Saskatchewan at the beginning of the depression in 1927 and it affected his whole life. He was recycling and repurposing long before that became popular. His early life was an apprenticeship for a vast array of skills: farming, gardening, building, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, logging, truck driving, machinery operating, and mechanical work. His curiosity and patience often resulted in working through challenging problems. The three homes he built on Vancouver Island were completed almost entirely by himself while working at a full time job at the pulp mill in Port Alberni. Keith was able to participate in a many recreational activities. He enjoyed the outdoors so fishing and hunting were the source of many adventures. It was common to get up in the wee hours to be "there" for first light. Keith and Dorothy always had a camping vehicle for those trips to the prairies or winters as a snowbird. Keith loved meeting new people on their travels and hearing their stories. He didn't watch much television. Keith left the farm in Pelly Saskatchewan to earn a living but he always was a farmer at heart. He loved his John Deere tractor and large garden. Through their hard work they were able to retire quite early. Keith was in farmer mode, clearing back the trees on their small acreage and expanding the gardens. His best times were in his garden where he fertilized with seaweed, watered religiously, hoed in his live and let live manner. Keith was devoted to his Dorothy. He enjoyed bringing her roses, peaches and raspberries from his garden. Keith was never eager to leave home yet always enjoyed each country Dorothy convinced him to travel to. His wife Dorothy passed away days before their 65 anniversary in November 2014. After a 15 year battle Keith succumbed to the effects of Alzheimer's. The final insult to his health was a broken hip that lead to his demise within a week. During his 4 year residency at Mountain Lakes, Keith had been a favorite of the caregivers with his easy smile and cooperative attitude. Small children and dogs have a sense of a person's true spirit. They all enjoyed being close to Keith. He was a wonderful, friend, spouse, father and grandfather. He will be missed. Keith is survived by his son Richard (Susan) and their children Kathryn, Sarah and Robert of Redwater Alberta; daughter Wendy West (Mike Reichardt) of Nelson, his sister Faye Rezansoff (John) of Togo. Keith was predeceased by his parents Jack and Alice West of Pelly, his twin Alfred, and younger brothers Glenn and Ellis. The West family would like to thank the staff of Mountain Lake Assisted Living program and Dr. Janz for the excellent care they gave Keith. The family will gather in the Maloneck cemetery north of Pelly Saskatchewan on a sunny day next summer to say goodbye to Keith and Dorothy. They were always happiest when they were together.
