WEBB, Arnold Edward. August 25, 1929 –
January 15, 2014. We sadly share the passing of our dearly loved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Arnold departed peacefully in Chilliwack, BC on January 15, with his loving wife, Vera, at his side.
Arnold is pre-deceased by his eldest son Stuart (2001) and is survived by his wife Vera, his children Lloyd (Teresa), Bruce (Marg), Cheryl (Chris), Janet, and Diane (Andreas), daughter-in-law (Donna), grandchildren Meagan, Chelsea, Kelly, Cody, John and great-grandchildren Kenzie and Kobe, and brother Blaine. Arnold was born and grew up in Barrhead, AB, which was also where he and Vera met, married and began their 61-year journey together. Arnold’s life-long career in the oil and gas industry took the family to various locations across western Canada including a 16-year stretch in Fort Nelson, BC, where he managed one of the largest natural gas processing plants in the world. From there, Arnold and Vera moved to the lower mainland and eventually settled in Chilliwack. When he wasn’t tearing up the Fraser Valley golf courses and walking trails, he and Vera were likely to be en route to connect with family and long-time friends with the RV in tow. Arnold’s first love, however, was spending time with Vera and their gang. We will always cherish the memories of our many family reunions and celebrations that meant so much to Dad. Our sincere thanks go out to the Chilliwack General Hospital staff for the kindness and care extended to Arnold and his family during his final days. A private family service will be held in the spring to celebrate Arnold’s life. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of British Columbia.
