January 13, 1969 – October 22, 2018
With great sadness we announce the passing of Robert Birchall of Vernon, on Monday October 22, 2018 at the Vancouver General Hospital following complications of care.
Robert leaves behind his daughter Hannah, her Mom Cathy, his parents John and Mary Birchall, brothers Rick (Susan), Ron (Bonnie), nephews Thomas, Isaac and Eric, and many friends from Kamloops and Falkland.
He was a proud member of the Ulkatcho First Nation, Anahim Lake, where he leaves many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was the grandson of Thomas and Celestine Squinas (both pre-deceased).
Robert was born January 13, 1969 in Kamloops. Growing up in Kamloops, he enjoyed many active years playing sports, enjoying the outdoors – especially swimming and paintball, and developing his love of reading while studying at the University College of the Cariboo.
We will all miss his keen sense of humor and sharing of his expansive knowledge of all things film.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1 pm, Friday November 23rd at Alternatives Funeral Home, 4417 – 29th Street, Vernon. (www.myalternatives.ca/vernon). In lieu of flowers, donations to the Falkland Community Library would be greatly appreciated.
