Victor Donald John Kashton


It is with great sadness that I announce the sudden passing of my brother Vic.

Vic loved fishing and took many fishing trips within Alberta and BC.

Vic leaves to cherish his memory, his sister Donna, aunts, numerous cousins and many colleagues at the zoo.

He was predeceased by his parents John (1956), Nelliene (1963), sister (1950) and numerous relatives.

He was hard working and will be greatly missed by everyone who knew and worked with him.

Vic was a member of the union CUPE Local 30.

Cremation has taken place.

Vic and I used to work together at ECL. We often went fishing around Edson and Hinton in his 1972 Chevy Chiane 3 on the tree pickup, that had no brakes, transmission or door locks. Vic taught me to love Jazz and world music. Vic was a pretty good carpenter and he build a beautiful folding Zen camping table. On one of the fishing trips he was lighting a hibache and set the table on fire. We drifted apart over the years and I just learned of his passing today. RIP Vic.

I remember being at a
Family gathering of “cousins” and aunts and uncles, and the teen girls talking about the Monkees” and how much we loved their music. Victor was the cool older cousin who played guitar and played for us a record of “real Music”. It was Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix. It was the first time I ever heard Jimi Hendrix. May you be surrounded by loving family and the very best music in heaven, Vic.

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind
Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

You were an artist, a musician, a fisherman, a connoisseur, a scholar and a friend to many. We will miss you at the zoo Vic…
