Paul William Saprikin

was born on September 11, 1958 and passed away suddenly on March 17,

2010 while on a hike with the dog up one of our local mountains.

Paul was a member of the

Carpenter Union local #2300.

He was an avid outdoorsman

and was happiest when out 4X4ing, hiking, mushroom/berry picking, gathering firewood or fishing. Paul constantly found new places to explore. He also liked to renovate and work with

different types of wood. His camera was always with him.

He is survived by his friend Betty Kooznetsoff, her children Letisha, Alex (JJ), and Jeremy. His siblings John(Betty), Marilyn(Doug), and

Andy(Cathy), 1 niece, 5 nephews, 3 great nieces, 2 great nephews and many relatives.

Paul was predeceased by his parents, Nellie and William Saprikin and his grandparents. He had a very special relationship with his “ Grandfather

“ Kabatoff, and niece Leanna and family.

No funeral at the request of Paul. There will be a celebration of his life at a future date.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to our families and friends during this time of loss. A huge thank you to Patrick, RCMP Constables

Van Horne and Gardener, the paramedics,

SPCA, Nina, Thompson Furneral Home and

Bill at Personal Alternatives who have given us so much support. Also special thanks to Keisha for being such a loyal canine and sharing so many of his outings with him.

Paul always said, “ If I die up a

mountain be happy for me,

cause I’ll be gone and don’t care.”
