Marlene Zenowski 1933 — 2017

Marlene Zenowski

We are saddened to announce that on June 5, 2017,  Marlene Eleanor Zenowski decided that it was time to rejoin her husband Bill,  after missing him for 10 long years.   Bill Zenowski was the love of her life, and she the love of his, so we find comfort with the knowledge that they’re together again.

Marlene was born in Kamloops (as the middle child to a British/Irish father and Swedish mother) but was not raised here, moving many times in her childhood years to follow her father’s work and army career.  She loved Vancouver in particular, but eventually came back to Kamloops, met Bill, and stayed here for the rest of her life.  The first moment Bill saw Marlene, he turned to his friend and told him that he was “goingRead More & Leave Condolences »

It is with profound sorrow and sadness that we announce the death of our deeply beloved son, Steven. During his short life, Steven touched many people with his humour and love.

Steve is survived by his broken hearted parents, Dave (Shanamay) Baxter, Roseanne (Rich) Kovasin , sister Taylor (Dylan), grandpa Tom and grandma Betty.

Anthony Stanley Lawrence Bugera 1966 — 2017

Anthony Stanley Lawrence Bugera

Anthony Bugera: February 9, 1966 – May 30, 2017.

Here’s the Thing…

Anthony was born into this world fighting for his life.  Similarly, and while surrounded by loved ones, Anthony left us 51 years later, still putting up the good fight

Despite the odds, nothing kept Anthony from enjoying his passions: Computers, skiing, scuba diving, sailing, photography, and role-playing games, to nBorn and raised in Kamloops, BC, in his youth, Anthony was active in the Ukrainian Orthodox church, and was a member of the Ukrainian dance group; he also excelled at violin.  Graduating from Norkam Secondary in 1984, Anthony continued his studies at Cariboo College, Vancouver Community College, and the University of British Columbia.  While at university, he joined Sigma Chi Fraternity.  It was at Sigma Chi where Anthony developed many friendships that continued until his final days.

It didn’t take long for Anthony to develop a reputation as a Computer Guy; and he was frequently sought out for his computer programming and technical skills.  It seemed only logical that Anthony parlay his computer prowess to a full-time occupation, as he worked his way in the Tech Support industry for several companies including the Richmond School District, before finally developing his own Company, Armadillo Consulting. In the midst of achieving his dreams of working in IT, Anthony found employment at Zellers Store #50 in Kamloops.  It was there in 1986 that he met his future wife, Trish.  She finally agreed to go out with him on the third try, and they remained together until the very end.  After Anthony and Trish married in 1988, they relocated to Vancouver to continue university studies.

In 1998 Anthony and Trish welcomed their first child, Vladimyr into the world, and in 2006, daughter Oksana came along.  Life continued at a busy pace with Anthony running his own business while coaching Vlad’s soccer team for several seasons; he also taught Sunday School at church.  In August 2008, Anthony fell ill, and spent ten days at St. Paul’s Hospital.  Anthony had been bitten by a tick, and his symptoms matched those of Lyme Disease.  Anthony was also diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis – either way, his health was affected tremendously.  Anthony was treated for Lyme, and his symptoms dissipated quite rapidly; he returned to coaching soccer, and was starting to feel good again.Read More & Leave Condolences »
