PAUL PREHARA 1928 — 2022


Paul Prehara passed peacefully on October 16th, 2022 at the age of 93, surrounded by his loving children at his side.  Paul was born in Coalhurst, Alberta on November 3, 1928 and resided in North Kamloops on Maple Street for nearly 89 years.

He is survived by his children David (Terry) Prehara , Michael Prehara (Sue Threlkeld) of Kamloops and Debbie Miller (Harry Cole) of Campbell River, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nephew and nieces.  He was predeceased by his sister Christine Schmidt in 1987 and his brother George Prehara in 2006.

You would find Paul carving the slopes of Todd Mountain/Sun Peaks from the year the mountain opened in 1961 to February 2020 (92 years of age), and water skiing on the Thompson River during the summer months.

Paul was baptized as a Jehovah’s Witness in October of 1969 and served Jehovah faithfully until his passing.

The family thanks the nurses and doctors at Royal Inland Hospital for their caring of Paul during his short stay.  We also would like to thank Kevin Batdorf for his help and support to Paul and his family during this difficult time.

There will be a Celebration of life November 5, 2022, 2 p.m at the Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall located at 270 Leigh Road, Kamloops, BC.
