TURTLE, Herbert Ernest L. May 21, 1922 – December 2, 2011. Following a lengthy illness, Herbert passed away peacefully with his family by his side – a soldier to the end. He lived a long, eventful life from his wartime service years, to serving with the Vancouver Police Force, to his entrepreneurial adventures. Herb had a love for nature, he was a jack of all trades, a man’s man, and a loyal friend with love and dedication for family. Herb will be deeply missed by his lifelong mate his wee Scottish Lass Betty…they would have celebrated their 69th Wedding Anniversary this coming New Year’s Eve. Missing him also are his son Norman/Christine, Daughter Sheila/Larry, and Granddaughters Jacqui & Brittany, his brother Eric and nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his mother Margaret, his father Ernest and his sister Virginia. His sense of humour, and gentlemanly behaviour made him a popular patient. Thanks to all the caring staff at Peace Portal Lodge these past months. A private gathering will be held. If wished, donations may be made to Veteran Affairs Canada, Canadian Cancer Society or to a charity of your choice.
