Vincent Raymond O’Hara 1923 — 2019

Vincent Raymond O’Hara

December 28, 1923 to August 31, 2019

Vince left our world to be with his Lord, finally, dying peacefully in his sleep in the early morning of August 31, 2019 at 95 years of age. Vince was the youngest of 14 children born to Michael and Amanda O’Hara and the devoted husband of Mae O’Hara who passed away January 1, 2009. He was predeceased by all of his siblings and their spouses, so he was the last of the M. O’Hara’s! He has 31 nieces and nephews and their various families all over BC, Alberta and Oregon. Vince served in the Royal Canadian Navy in World War II and did 14 crossings of the North Atlantic. He was a faithful member of the Knights of Columbus and Legion member in Kamloops, where he and Mae ran the business of Mae’s Rug and Upholstery cleaning for years. His last years were spent at Ridgeview Lodge, where he had excellent care. We will miss his crooked grin and sparkling Irish eyes! Our Lady Perpetual Help, guide him home.


The Funeral Mass will recited at 1:00 pm on Thursday, September 5, 2019 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. Following the service, Vince will be laid to rest in Hillside Cemetery with his beloved Mae. Celebrant, Father Vijay Martin, OCD.

    So sorry to hear of Vince’s passing. We had alot of good laughs over the years. I nursed his dear wife Mae and was in awe of his devotion to her. I am comforted that they are together again.
