November 22, 1941 – October 6, 2021
Donald Leslie Tremblay, 79, of Lillooet, B.C. passed away on October 6, 2021, peacefully surrounded by family.
He was born on November 22, 1941, in Vancouver, B.C. Don grew up in Armstrong, Deep Cove and eventually the family moved to the Bridge River Valley.
Between helping the family business and Cowboying at Empire Valley Don was able to start his working career as a Heavy Duty Mechanic in Vancouver and continued his education as a millwright with Canadian Pacific Rail yards in Vancouver.
Don worked for Bralorne Mines Ltd in the late ’60’s early ’70’s, Boss Mountain where in 1980 went to win the Canadian Mine Rescue Championship in Saskatoon Saskatchewan.
In 1983 the family moved to Revelstoke where Don and Ellen were the owners of Revelstoke Cycle Shop for 9 years. Don then went on to work at Goldstream Mine in Revelstoke, Mount Paulie Mine in Likely BC and Bralorne Mines and finished his working career with B R Grossler farms in 2010.
Don is survived by his only son Colin Tremblay and wife Michele as well as his grandchildren Hayley and Logan. He is survived by his brothers Brian and wife Tina Tremblay, John Tremblay and partner Heather along with many nieces and nephews.
Don was known for his love of the mountains and was especially proud of his Fargo truck that he had restored. His sly sense of humour will be missed by all.
A celebration of life is to be held for close family and friends at a private gathering. The family asks that people make donations in support of (Epileptic Neuroscience), in lieu of sending flowers.Obituary
