1933 – 2017
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Stanley “Cork” Endean on September 21, 2017 after a lengthy illness, at the age of 84. He passed away at the Marjorie Willoughby Hospice House with his family by his side.
Cork is survived by his wife and best friend of 58 years, Willie; daughter, Lynn (Randy) Sunderman; grandchildren Josh and Mary; brothers Mal (Dot), Tom (Barb), Vic (Diana), Ken (Donna); sisters Marj (Wayne) and Patsy (John); sister-in-law, Mona; and numerous nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents, Madge and Morley, son Randy, brother Norm “Butch”, sister Rose, and brothers-in-law Grant and Bill.
Cork was born on May 22, 1933 in Last Lake, Alberta. He moved with his family to Kamloops in 1948. Cork worked in sawmills, tended bar in local hotels, and drove trucks for Pacific Brewery Distributors. He loved the great outdoors and was a hunting, camping, and fishing enthusiast. Cork was very proud of getting his small plane flying license while in his early fifties. His favourite colour was anything plaid, so in honour of Cork, the family requests that guests wear something plaid at the Celebration of Life.
The Celebration of Life will be held at the Desert Gardens at 540 Seymour Street in Kamloops on Sunday, October 1st, 2017 at 10:30 am.
Cork’s family would like to thank Dr. Peter Gorman, the nurses on 6 South at RIH, and all the staff at the Marjorie Willoughby Hospice House for their excellent care.
