It is with extreme sadness for our family to announce the sudden passing of Donavin Kyle Akerley, 35 years old, of Kamloops B.C. Donavin’s life was taken in a motorcycle accident in Kamloops on September 26.
Donavin was born in Kelowna to Dana Akerley and Don Meier on September 17, 1986. At the time of his death, Donavin was taking university classes to become a lawyer, and recently he was working as an equipment operator. Donavin was a real inspiration to all that knew him, and to his family, friends, and peers. Donavin leaves a big hole in his Narcotics Anonymous family, a friend, a confidante, and somebody special that helped so many of his peers who loved and respected him. He was a member of the Kamloops Motorcycle Enthusiasts and loved to ride.
Donavin is preceded in death by his Father Don Meier, Grandparents Hank and Phyllis Akerley. Baba and Gido Peter and Kaye Swetz, Uncles Ron and Albert Hrabchuk.
