It is with deep sadness that the family of Jose Estrela announces his passing on Wednesday, August 13, 2014.
Dad was a family man who cherished having family around him. He immigrated from Portugal in 1959 to work for CP Rail and remained with the company until he retired.
Left to mourn his passing are his daughters Gorett (John), Felomena (Dave), sons Rick and Danny, all from Kimberley; grandchildren Chris, Dennie, Jeff, Brandon, Ashley (Ben) and Candace; great grandchildren Tyler, Cheyenne, Taleah, Shayle, Corale and Jase.
There will be no service by request. A private family gathering will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a memorial donation in honour or Jose may do so to the: Kimberley Helping Hands Food Bank Society, 340 – Leadenhall Street, Kimberley, British Columbia, V1A 2R6.
