Binstead; Percy

October 2, 1913 – October 29, 2014


Percy (Pat) passed away peacefully at his home in Chilliwack, with his family close by who will never forget the influence he had on their lives.

Pat was born in Farncombe Surrey, England and emigrated to Canada in 1919 with his family. They settled in Edmonton where he went to school, then later married and moved to Vancouver with Vicki. He worked for Frasea Farms as a dairy inspector at Sea Island in Richmond and when World War II began, he worked for Boeing. After the war, he worked at Melrose Dairies, then at Simpson Sears and stayed there until retirement. He & Vicki moved to Slesse Park where they built their retirement home and after she passed away, he married Betty-Anne. Pat was predeceased by his loving wives, Vicki & Betty-Anne; brother Stan; his sisters Doreen and Freda. He is survived by his sister Marilyn (Peter), brothers Bob (Adriana), and Donny (Truusje); sons Dennis (Norma) and Bud (Joan); grand children Mark (Marcia), Ian (Cathy), John and Victoria; great-grand children Emma and Lauren. He is also survived by his 3 step-children Leslie (Mark), Russell (Deborah) and Trish; step-grand children Lisa, Matthew, Chantelle, Brianne, Skye and Echo; step-great grand children Meagan, Brittany, Shannon and Talin; and step-great-great grand children Tristan, Melisa and Jackson. The love he had for all his family always brought the biggest smile when they came to visit. He will always be remembered for his love of his garden, his curiosity of world affairs and his calm & positive outlook on life. He will be deeply missed by those who knew him and loved him ……gone but not forgotten. Next Spring, there will be a celebration of life when we scatter the ashes in the Vedder River, date to be advised later.
