Mathias , Popp 1942 — 2021

Mathias , Popp

Our beloved husband, father and Papa passed away peacefully in his sleep after many years of health challenges.  Matt was born in Yugoslavia and came to Canada in 1949.  Matt worked in construction for many years and in 1974 started working for BC Hydro.  In 1986 he began working at Mica Creek until 1994 when he was able to come back to Kamloops. He retired in 2008 after 34 years.  Matt’s wife Sharon, daughter Shelly(Neal) Aronowski and grandson Bradley are left to cherish the many memories of him. He was pre-deceased by his son Martin in 1986, and survived by his oldest sister Kay Berker.  He loved camping and fishing and was proud to talk construction with Bradley and show him the ropes. He will be missed dearly by family and friends. Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Cattaneo and the many doctors who looked after him and Tim at Kamloops Funeral home for your help. Words cannot express our gratitude.

We love you… gone but not forgotten. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Alzheimer society of B.C. or a charity of choice in memory of Mat.
