???Vincent Mladenko Blaskovich 1931 – 2017
With profound sorrow the family of Vincent Blaskovich shares the news of his death. Vincent passed away at Central Okanagan Hospice House in Kelowna in his 86th year. Vincent was a dedicated educator; his years of service, leadership and mentoring as a teacher, principal and superintendent had a lasing impact in SD#23 and the Diocese of Nelson.
Vincent is dearly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife, Pamela; his daughter, Christina; his son Mark (Celia); his grandchildren, Griffin, Quinlan and Thea; and extended family in England, Australia and New Zealand.
Althought recent declining health curtailed his ability to travel, Vincent enjoyed many trips to “Cranberry” and appreciated the wild beauty of the East Kootenays and the fine people he encountered here.
In respecting Vincent’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private family service and internment was held Easter Monday at St. Andrew’s Heritage Church, Okanagan Mission.
teach me your mood, O patient stars! Who climb each night the ancient sky, Leaving on space no shade, no scars, No trace of age, no fear to die. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
