Emil will be missed by his son Emil Jr., his daughter Lynn (Calvin) and extended family in Hungary, Ontario and the United States.

He worked in the forestry industry for 40 years, including 20 years in the private sector and 20 years for the BC Provincial Government. He took great pride in his family and enjoyed working on his house and yard.
