We Remember

POST, Arthur Murdock

July 20, 1937 — June 18, 2023

Arthur Murdock Post passed away peacefully surrounded by family on June 18, 2023.  Survived by his wife of 58 years, Louise Elizabeth Post (née Richardson), son Michael (Nola), daughter Shelley (Patrick), granddaughter Danica and niece Brenda.

Born in Selkirk, Manitoba on July 20, 1937, the family moved to a farm in Arden, Manitoba in 1946. In 1951 the family moved to Salmo, B.C. where Arthur attended high school and graduated in 1955. In 1956 the family moved again, this time to Vancouver, B.C.  In 1963 Arthur met Louise Elizabeth Richardson and in 1965 they married in Burnaby, B.C.

Art worked for B.C. Telephone Company for 35 years.  Upon retirement in 1991, Art and Louise moved to Pender Harbour, B.C. on the Sunshine Coast and lived there for 10 years. In 2002 they moved to Kelowna, B.C. to be closer to family.

Art was active in all the communities he lived in, volunteering as a coach for various sports teams and working with the Pender Harbour community policing. In 2013, Art became the founder and first president of the Okanagan Men’s Shed, a community organization for the health and welfare of senior men. From that first Men’s Shed in 2013 there are now 36 organizations in British Columbia.

There will be a Celebration of Arthur’s Life, on Tuesday, June 27, 2023, at 10:00 am, in the Family Centre at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.

  • Sandra (Thomas) Sellick says:

    Art’s photo and obituary evoked memories of the 1970s when my mother Pamela Thomas and I were active members of the BCGS and charter members of the Family History Association of Canada. I have several photos that Art took of the most senior and junior members of the BCGS circa 1976. Well into his 90s, Walter Draycott was the senior; still a student, I was the junior. It is my understanding that one of those photos can be seen at the BCGS Library in Surrey. I have lived in Kelowna since 1980 and was a charter member of the Kelowna and District Genealogy Society circa 1984.. I did not know that Art and Louise also moved to Kelowna, although I am aware of the inspiring story of the Men’s Shed project. Mum passed in Port Moody in 2002, but we both enjoyed our friendship with the Posts during our Burnaby days, With heartfelt sympathy to the Louise and the Post family on Art’s passing, Sandra.
