Ralph Smedbol

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Hans Ralph Smedbol on December 3, 2015 after a short fight with cancer. Born in New Denver on December 2, 1951 to Marion and Hans Smedbol, he lived for most of his life in the Slocan Valley, except for the time he spent at the University of Victoria where he got a bachelor of music and his later years in the City of Nelson. Pre-deceased by his parents, he is survived by his beloved wife Easwari Thoreraj, brother Richard Smedbol and children Emanuel and Tara Smedbol. The family would like to thank Dr. Malpass, Dr. Kailia, and the home care nurses who have been with us on this tumultuous journey. Arrangements are under the direction of Thompson Funeral Service.
