Kevin Vacen

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kevan Vacen on November 9th, 2013.

Kevan was a loving father, friend, brother and son. Kevan had a big heart, so kind and generous, always putting a smile on the faces of those around him. He was always willing to lend a hand and his infectious laugh reverberated through the air. Kevan liked to read and watch movies but most of all he loved to spend time with his children. Kevan was an artist; he delighted in working with wood and painting with bright colours. He had a passion for music matched only by his love of the outdoors. He enjoyed fishing and playing baseball.

Kevan is survived by his children Keiran and Zara along with their mother Shannon Clark. His mum Koteah Vacen, sisters Dani (Carey) Chalifour and Amy (Calvin) Benteau along with many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held on Friday, November 15th, 2013 at 4pm at the Vallican Whole Community Hall, 3762 Little Slocan South Road.

As an expression of sympathy donations may be made to a trust fund for his children. Please contact the family for further information.
