We are saddened by the sudden passing of our dear father, Fred Runte on Saturday, December 20, 2014, only 12 days following the death of Hilda, his wife of 51 years. Fred is survived by his two daughters Andrea Runte and Liz (Eric) Stanley, and three grandchildren Austin, Hannah and Loren Stanley, all of Vernon B.C. He was predeceased by his mother Martha Karff in 1927, his father Fred Sr., and his brother Ernest Runte. At his request there will be no funeral service. His cremated remains will be inurned in the family plot in the spring of 2015.
