It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Louis Simon Huppee on June 11, 2021 in Kamloops, BC.
Born in Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan on August 21, 1943, Louis was an avid fisherman, and a long-time member of the Knights of Columbus where he held a senior level position. On February 20, 1988, a Certificate of Merit from the Government of Canada was given for Grateful Recognition for his contribution to the community. On April 16, 1996, Coquitlam Minor Hockey Association bestowed an Honorary Life membership for fourteen years of outstanding service to minor sports.
He was a well-known and respected Sales Representative within the BC Lumber community, having retired from a distinguished career with Vernon’s Tolko Industries on September 1, 2007.
Louis is preceded in death by his mother (Yvette) and father (Francois [Frank]), two brothers (Henry and Leo) and his first wife (Carol).
He is survived by his long-time loving Partner and best friend of 22 years Doreen, sisters (Lucille and Jeanne) and leaves behind six children (Laurette, Sylvia, Garth, Mark, Darryl and Lyle), thirteen grand-children and seven great-grandchildren.
Louis always had a welcoming smile and cheerful outlook on life and will be greatly missed by all who were fortunate enough to have crossed paths with him.
A celebration of life will take place at a later date and will be posted on the funeral website www.fischersfuneralservices.com
Our sincere condolences and love to Doreen and Louis family. Our paths crossed at Glen Echo and from there we became great and close friends, with both of us residing in the same modular park in Sorrento. Rest easy my friend. This picture will always be the way I remember you and all those special times and days we spent together. Your big smile and a glass of scotch. That was truly you. We will always miss you and will never forget you.
Doreen i’m so sorry to hear this sad news. i will always remember fondly how much fun Louis was to work with. His sense of humour was so great! When he retired he was greatly missed. My condolences to you and all of your family
Doreen and family, saddened to hear of your Louis passing. We loved his sense of humour and it seemed he was always laughing about something! Nick remembers how Louis always referred to a glass of scotch as “mama’s milk”. Our hearts go out to you.
Will miss his welcome phone calls that started out with a cheery “Happy Thursday (or whatever day it was). Always so cheerful. He is missed so much by so many. Condolences to his whole family.
To Doreen and the Huppee family. We are so sorry for your loss. We have a lot of fond memories from being neighbors in Vernon and then between Sorrento & Salmon Arm. Louis left quite a legacy. We will miss his upbeat personality. Loved his use of “Absolutely”. See you on the other side.
