In loving memory
Matthew Adrianus Vollans
October 13, 1978 – May 26, 2015
Matthew Adrianus Vollans, age 36, of Kamloops, B.C. (former resident of Vavenby), died suddenly last Tuesday, May 26, 2015. He was a loving husband to Jill (nee Flegel); father of daughter Keziah (10) and son Seth (8). He’s son to Gord and Mary; brother to Tanya, Chris, Andrew and Carla; grandson to Marie Visser; as well as son-in-law to Rick and Trudy Flegel; brother-in-law to Kim Smith (nee Flegel). He leaves behind many other family members and a myriad of friends.
Matt loved life and was energetic, enthusiastic and a loyal and dear friend to many. He always made everyone he met feel valuable and loved, and was a true “Son of Encouragement”! He loved family with all his heart, and one of his biggest joys was spending time with them all. He was sensitive, loving and kind, always striving to develop deep relationships with everyone he did life with.
Above all, he loved and lived his life to the glory of God. He challenged himself along with everyone else to do this to the fullest; his favorite verse being, “Be imitators of Christ.”
Matt worked as an electrician and instrumentation tech in the oil, gas and forest industry; he also was an integral part of the water purification system while he was employed with the City of Kamloops.
A service will be held June 5th at 1 p.m. (viewing @ 12 p.m.) at Summit Drive Baptist Church (1975 Summit Dr), Kamloops, B.C. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the New Life Mission, Kamloops.
The family would like to thank everyone for their genuine kindness and concern.
Matt’s life was a short and sweet one … So well loved because he loved so well; always esteeming others as better than himself … forever to be remembered, he will live on in our hearts and minds!
