It is with much sadness that the family announces that on Thursday, December 9th, 2010 at the age of 76 Moe passed away peacefully in Chilliwack with his wife and daughter Beverly holding his hands after a courageous battle against cancer.

Moe was a loving husband, a hero to his children, a proud and loving grampa, great-grampa, a great brother, son, uncle and godfather as well as a loyal friend. He is survived by his wife Kathleen (Bunty) Standeven, children Beverly, Darrel, Janice, and Cathy, grandchildren Jennifer, Joanna, Daniel, Crystal, Kimberly, Julie and Kristina, and great-grandchildren Lane, Gaige, Kieryn and Locklyn.
