ARCHIE OLIVER KEMBEL
"AOK"
November 23, 1929 to November 10, 2009

It is with great sadness that we announce Archie's sudden passing. Archie was a proud father and grandfather. He is dearly missed by his sons, Gary (Heather) and Don (Phyllis), his daughter, Joanne (Howard), and his grandchildren. Archie is also mourned by his siblings, Anne, Dick, Vern and Verna. He was predeceased by Shirley, his wife of 57 years, who left us on July 20, 2009. Archie's heart was broken without her and we know he is now at peace.
Archie and Shirley loved long summer days by their Kamloops backyard pool, often with their visiting children and grandchildren Derek, Karen and Alex (Donald); Graeme and Evelyn (Gary); and Hannah and Emily (Joanne). Archie loved to golf and three times he achieved a hole-in-one.
Archie was born in Luseland, Saskatchewan to parents Alexander and Minnie Kembel and was one of eight children. Archie and Shirley married in 1952 and lived in Kamsack, Saskatchewan and The Pas, Manitoba before moving to Kamloops in 1975. Archie worked with the Canadian National Railroad until 1988, when he retired. He had many hobbies, including a second business in The Pas as an apiarist with hundreds of hives of bees and building and flying model airplanes.
Service at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, November 18, 2009 at Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive. Donations to Royal Inland Hospital or the Canadian Lung Association.
