It is with deep sadness that we share the tragic passing of our son, Jeff. He was just 32.
Jeff was taken to Kelowna General Hospital on Saturday, March 25th in the evening, feeling unwell, after struggling for a couple of days with flu-like symptoms. In the early hours of Sunday morning he had a cardiac event, this “event” was followed by two additional heart attacks later in the morning. Tragically, he was not able to overcome the damage they caused. Although we had been away in the US, we were able to get back in time to spend precious hours by his side. Our son Rob flew in early last evening as well, so we were all together.
Jeff is survived by his loving family: his parents Mike and Donna Striha of Vernon; his brother Rob (McKenzie) of Grand Prairie; Auntie Lise Poirier (Don) of Kelowna, who were very dear to him; his dear friend Lekyshia of Kelowna and her grandparents Gail and Bud Magrath; a very large extended family and many good friends.
A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, March 31st at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. Following the service, everyone is invited to a reception at the home of Mike and Donna Striha, 5020 Painted Turtle Lane, Vernon, BC.
