Ted Kalevi VIROLA

VIROLA, Ted Kalevi

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Ted: husband, father and grandpa, on February 28, 2012 after a brief illness.

Ted was born in Viipuri, Finland on June 17, 1928 and immigrated to Ladysmith, B.C. in 1954. He is predeceased by his father, mother and brother.

Ted is survived by his loving wife of 56 years Elisabet, his daughters Eva ( David) Moore, Anita Todd and numerous relatives in Finland. He will be deeply missed by his grandchildren, Melanie (Eric) Penner, Derek Moore, Stuart Moore, Barrett Belesky and Everrett Belesky.

Ted worked hard to provide a good life for his family. He was a great believer in education and supported his children and grandchildren with their post secondary studies. He was kind to everyone.

He will never be forgotten and will live forever in our hearts. A Celebration of Ted’s life will be held at a later date.

Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations in Ted’s memory can be made to Emmaus Lutheran Church, 6344 Sperling Avenue, Burnaby, B.C. V5E 2V4
