February 4, 1937 – May 31, 2022
In loving memory ~
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jeremy Fall at the Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, on Tuesday, May 31, 2022 at the age of 85.
Jeremy Fall, born in England moved to Canada with his family in 1943. In 1945, after WWII was over, they moved to the family farm in the Cowichan Valley where he lived his childhood life. Jeremy attended local schools and met his loving wife, the late Mariette Fall (vanAert).
They married in 1956 and settled in the valley. Jeremy worked as an electrician at Crofton Pulp and Paper Mill for many years until he left to follow his dreams to become a Commercial Fisherman. When he and Mariette weren’t fishing they spent many hours in the vegetable garden and hobby farm to help feed their seven children. Upon retiring from Commercial Fishing, his love for the ocean continued and he spent every chance he could fishing mainly out of Port Renfrew.
His life crashed in 2013 with the loss of Mariette to cancer. Then out of the blue he reconnected with a great school friend, Bonnie Curl, and from then, lived a happy life in love again.
Special thanks to Bonnie Curl for all the great love and care over the past years and to the Doctors and staff at Lions Gate Hospital, making Jeremy feel as comfortable as possible. Predeceased by his parents Joseph and Jane Fall, his brother Stewart and granddaughter Danielle Zorisky.
Survived by his love Bonnie Curl, his seven children, Gordie Fall (Linda), Liz Cage (Lockie), Jeannette Fleetwood (Dave), Richard Fall (Colette), Marianne Palou (Keith), Trish Zorisky (Larry), Bernie Fall (Liz), 16 grandchildren and many great grandchildren.
He will also be missed by his twin sister, Josephine Hutchinson (Des), his brother, Michael Fall (Julia) and many nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life will be held on August 07, 2022 at the Cowichan Station HUB 1:00-4:00pm in Duncan, BC.
