Dec. 30, 1938 – May 8, 2021
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Harry Perepolkin. He is survived by his loving wife Katie of 60 years, daughter Donna, son Ken, grandchildren Selena (Pedro), Katrina (Garry) and great grandchildren Noah and Lorenzo. He is also survived by his sister Olga (George) as well as many nieces and nephews.
Harry was born in New Denver and resided in Hills his entire life. Harry had a strong work ethic. He worked as a faller for most of his life. Harry’s passions were gardening and tending to his meticulously cared for property. He was also an avid hiker and forager of wild mushrooms, huckleberries and suziki. He could often be seen with his fishing line cast in one of the local lakes, reeling in his and Katie’s dinner. His love of fishing was passed on to his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Above everything else, his family was most important to him. He was generous, selfless and put everyone before himself. He will be greatly missed by everyone. A private service was held in Nakusp on May 15. A celebration of life will be held once restrictions are lifted.Print Obituary & Condolences
