Edwin PFOH

PFOH; Edwin

Born June 23, 1930 in Fernie, BC to Jakob and Theresa Pfoh. He spent his younger years between Fernie and Calgary following the rodeo circuit. In 1956 he met and married Myrtle Edwards. In 1966 he brought his family to Kitimat to work at Alcan. During his time at Alcan he worked in the pot-lines he was a crane operator and trainer. He finished his work for Alcan at Kildala Beach for 5 years. Those were his best working years. Our home was a home to many kids over the years. Dad used to say that he had to count heads when he went to work, then count again when he came home because he never knew if our family would be bigger at the end of the day. Dad spent many of his years in Kitimat walking the river during steelhead season. He shared this love with his children and grandchildren. In 1999 mom and dad moved to Mission. In 2004 dad lost the love of his life when mom died. A big part of dad died that day too. Dad lived in his own home until November 2014 when he moved into a retirement home. It was with deep sorrow that we found out dad had passed away on August 20, 2015. He was predeceased by his parents, brothers and sisters and Myrtle, his wife. Left to mourn and cherish our memories are Tom (Iona), Jo-Anne (Butch), Rob (Michelle), Margaret (Kevin), Eddie and Ray, grandchildren; Robbie, Cindy, Troy, Allison, Michael & Terry Anderson, Mackenzie, Brett & Luke Pfoh, Danielle Clingwall, Crystal & Eli Wilson, great grandchildren; Miranda, & Kyle Anderson, Heath, Jaxx, & Kaiyah Anderson. There will be a family celebration of life in Kitimat sometime in September.
