Oct 28, 1938 ~ May 17, 2013
It is with profound sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our father RJ Konefall at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, surrounded by family on May 17, 2013.
Born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, RJ resided in Nanaimo for the last 10 years, close to his children and grandchildren.
He was predeceased by his father Stephen, mother Elphie and brother Norman.
RJ will be lovingly remembered by his children Stephanie, Amy, Kevin, Christian, and Anthony, siblings Robert Ludwig, Douglas Love and Jane Campbell, grandchildren Kyle, Christine, Marrin, Miles, Paige, Benjamin, and Jamie as well as numerous extended family and friends.
A champion for all children, RJ enjoyed his trips to the family home in Tofino, fishing, was an avid reader, and enjoyed many sunny afternoons in his garden, surrounded by family.
Flowers are gratefully declined. For those so desiring, donations may be made to RJ’s favourite charities: The Red Cross or the Christian Children’s Fund.
A Funeral Service will be held at 11:30 am, May 23, 2013 at St Peter’s Catholic Church, 301 Machleary Street, Nanaimo.
A heartfelt thank you to all RJ’s friends and family who have provided such kindness and support to our family in this difficult time.
