Victor Sampson

Victor Sampson

July 26, 1925 – January 4, 2015

It breaks my heart to announce the passing of my father, Victor Sampson, who passed away peacefully at the age of 89 at Greenwoods. He was a life long resident of Salt Spring Island. He leaves behind his daughter Liz (Rob) Wilson, granddaughter Jasmin, six stepsons and their families, brothers Charlie, Ken, sister Ivy and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents Chester and Elizabeth, brothers Albert, Harold, George, Stanley, Bruce, William, Ernest, Clifford, sister Lily and the love of his life, wife Marguerita.

My father was the strongest, bravest and most beautiful man, who always had a big smile on his face. Vic served his country with the Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders on the front lines during WW2. After the war he began a career in fishing, logging and then got a full time job on the highways for many years before he retired. Vic loved being outdoors, being with his family, friends and his trips down for his daily coffee at Dagwoods and Embe Bakery.

We would like to thank the wonderful staff at Greenwoods for their care and compassion over the last five years. A big thank you to my family and friends for all their love and support over the past few weeks. I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you Dad for being the best father and papa – you are my hero.

A celebration of life will be held on February 1, 2015 at the Salt Spring Island Legion at 1:00 to 4:00pm. In lieu of flowers please donate to Greenwoods or BC Children’s Hospital.
