We Remember

FAST, Henry

Henry Fast, at the age of 85, passed away peacefully at his home in Kelowna, B.C. the morning of November 30, 2020. Henry was the son of Anton Fast and Katharina Fast (née Runde), born December 8, 1934 in Kraupa, Germany and immigrated to Canada in 1958, becoming a Canadian citizen in 1961.

Preceded in death by his wife, Nina. He was friend and companion of Edie Lavroff. He is greatly missed by all. He is the beloved father to his children, Anthony (Kathy), Nicholas and Katrina (Darcy), proud grandfather of Caitlin, Emily, Mickey, Rachel, Andy and Jordan (Sophie) and great-grandfather to Talon. He was friend to many with whom he shared his passions of the outdoors, athletics, and teaching.

Henry’s life will be honoured and celebrated at a private function due to current COVID regulations. The service will be livestreamed Monday, December 7, 2020 at 10:00 AM (PST). The family asks that in lieu of flowers, please donate to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Henry is fondly remembered by those who cared for him as a lover of spending time in nature (on land and water), spending time with close friends who knew him best and exploring the world. He preferred a simple and uncomplicated life, never shying away from hard work, and quiet relaxation and contemplation.
