With great sadness we announce the passing of Randy Folkard at Bastion Place after a great battle with cancer. Randy was born in Salmon Arm and attended school to become the first graduating class of the former Salmon Senior Secondary School in 1962. From here he moved to Prince George to apprentice as a millwright until 1969 when he married his wife Barbara and moved to Vancouver to work with a sawmill equipment manufacturing company. After completing a course in sales and marketing he began a lengthy career in sawmill equipment sales. Randy and family moved back to Salmon Arm in 1990 to work in marketing with Newnes Machine.
Randy enjoyed boating, golf, hockey, coaching minor sports, time spent on Shuswap Lake and keeping cars clean and grass mowed. Randy is survived by wife Barb, their children Percy and Erin and grandchildren. There will be no formal service as the immediate family will be having a private ceremony. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to a charity of your choice. The family would like to thank Dr. Heunis and the many staff at Mt. Ida Medical Centre, Mt. Ida Pharmacy, ACU clinic in Salmon Arm, oncology clinic at SLGH and Bastion Place for their wonderful care and support.
