May 4, 1942 – August 28, 2020
The family of Edward Perepolkin wish to announce his passing on August 28, 2020 at the Arrow Lakes Hospital, in Nakusp. Ed’s health had deteriorated over the last few years and he took great comfort in knowing that he was surrounded by loving family throughout that time and to the very end.
Edward was born in New Denver on May 4, 1942 and made his home in Hills for many years. In 2009, he built his retirement home on the shores of Summit Lake, where he continued to reside until one week before his passing.
Edward owned and operated his own logging truck company for many decades. He was also one of the original co-founders/owners of Three Islands Resort campground, at Summit Lake.
Although Ed never married or had children of his own, he was a wonderful and generous uncle to 18 nieces and nephews and 30 great nieces and nephews. He is survived by his sister Vera Aura of Revelstoke, brother Joe Perepolkin of Vernon, brother Alex Perepolkin of Hills and sister Linda Dennis, of Nakusp. He was predeceased by his parents Ely and Anne Perepolkin, sister Frances Kostiuk and brother Ely Perepolkin Jr.
As per Ed’s wishes, there will only be a private family gathering to commemorate his passing, with burial taking place at the Hills Community Cemetery.
Rest in peace, Ed…until we meet again.
