Vernon Allan Moberg
April 6, 1940 ~ October 17, 2023 (age 83) 83 Years Old
Vernon Allan Moberg passed away on October 17, 2023, in Kelowna. He was born to parents Nells and Winnifred Moberg on April 6, 1940, in North Vancouver.
One of Vern’s first jobs was working at King’s Mill down at the bottom of Fell Avenue and he also delivered furnace oil on the North Shore. On July 8, 1960, Vern married Dorothy and they lived in North Vancouver where they raised their two boys, Dan and Greg.
We all know how much Vern loved hockey. He coached at the North Shore Winter Club from 1972-1979 and formed a tight parent hockey group that lasted a life time. Vern was a scout for Billing’s Bighorns of the WHL from 1978-1982. He also coached the Billings Bighorns during the 1981-1982 season. In 1985, Vern and Dorothy purchased the Peachland Trailer Inn campground, which they operated for 18 years, meeting and creating many life-long friends. Vern also drove the school bus for Peachland School District and Wesbank First Nations Band. He loved to go see all his grandchildren’s activities.
Vern is survived by his children Dan (Colleen) and Greg (Krista); grandchildren Quinn, Mason, Samantha, Chloe, and Cole; siblings Buster, Joan (Ron), Eileen, Ted (Pat) and Don (Catherine); brother-in-law Jack; as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife of 57 years Dorothy; mother Wynn and father Nells; brothers-in-law Ben, Bob, and Jerry; and sister-in-law Pat.
We would like to extend a special thank you to Ted, Pat, and Trisha for all of their help.
